Album of the Day
Released last month to mark The Doors’ 50th anniversary, THE SINGLES shows the creative chemistry shared by drummer John Densmore, guitarist Robby Krieger, keyboardist Ray Manzarek and vocalist Jim Morrison as they became one of America’s most iconic and influential rock bands. The new collection features singles released from all six of the original quartet's studio albums, including classics like “People Are Strange,” “Love Her Madly” and “Riders On The Storm,” as well as mono radio versions of such hits as “Hello, I Love You” and “Touch Me” unavailable since their original release. The B-sides – many of which make their CD debut – add another dimension to the band’s legacy. THE SINGLES also features songs released after Morrison’s passing in 1971 as well as live selections from posthumous releases to provide a broader picture of the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers.
