The Doors / The Singles: 20-disc seven-inch vinyl box now available

The vinyl box set version of The Doors‘ The Singles compilation is now widely available.

The box contains 20 seven-inch singles and collects the rare single versions from all of the band’s landmark studio albums, plus other rarities from the era, including:

  1. Light My Fire (Original Mono Single Edit),
  2. Unknown Soldier/We Could Be So Good Together (Original Unique Mono Mix/Edit),
  3. Love Me Two Times (Single Edit),
  4. Touch Me (Original Unique Stereo Single Mix)

The full track listing is below. The UK price of £96 seems quite competitive. It’s also worth noting that with VAT deducted, the UK price for US fans is around $104 + shipping, which is a saving of nearly $50 on the US price.

As previously reported, this compilation is also available as a 2CD+blu-ray package. It will be released on 15 September 2017.

    People keep going on about the cover.isn’t it about what’s in the box .I will buy it for 20 vinyl not for the cover.I’ve never played a cover so I’m not missing out on anything

    • Martin says:

      For some people the cover art is part and parcel of the whole package, sure the music is paramount (otherwise you would not buy it) but the cover art can be a work of art in it’s own right.

      I have for many years been a fan of the cover art of the label 4AD. Vaughan Oliver is for me one of the great cover art designers along with his colleagues at V23. Here is an admission, I have purchased a number of 4AD releases not because of the music but because of the excellent artwork..

    • Tom of FIN says:

      Yes, that is correct. Box visuals are so tasteless, unprofessional, crappy and loud, that have to prefer digital listening on B-sides onwards.

      That box front would my whole collection to shame, would be the all time low front in the library. By far. What’s with the colors and for example? LOL

  2. richard says:

    Ordered !

    Now need to cancel the Japanese ‘Light my fire’

  3. TheRedPen says:

    I’m just curious. Why would anyone want 20 x 7″ singles?

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      Bit of a weird question on a site that’s about music box sets

      • TheRedPen says:

        My mistake. I thought the site was about Super Deluxe editions. I can honestly say that I can see nothing ‘super’ or ‘deluxe’ about a 7″ single. I almost get the fascination with vinyl LPs (nostalgia?) and they can even sound quite good if you have a half decent setup, but 7″ singles NEVER sounded good on ANY setup.

    • colm47 says:

      I’m buying them to put on my Wurlitzer jukebox!

    • RJS says:

      “Why would anyone want 20 x 7″ singles?”

      It’s for displaying, not playing! I’d wager that the majority of people who buy the 7″ box set will also buy the corresponding CD set so that they can listen to that instead of running the risk of damaging their 7″ vinyls. Credit to the labels – they know how to extract every last penny from fans (collectors)!

    • Tom of FIN says:

      Because of B-sides too, songs unreleased on LPs.

  4. LedMan says:

    I’m curious to know if you have any more info regarding Blu Ray?

  5. Paul says:

    $108 Shipped for me in So. Cal., US! Thank you! Wish Amazon would price match across their own sites!

  6. Mo Lester says:

    Looks like a lot of the sleeves will be plain/ plainish?

  7. Mylene says:

    Next year they’ll be doing the French/Australian EP collection. That should ring the last cent out of the ageing Doors’ collector.

  8. Tony Orwell says:

    I have a feeling this wont sell well, not because it is not a nice set or the doors dont have their collectors but there are certain bands that dont seem to do well when selling collectable singles and the doors is one of them, it all depends on how many are made of course but if there are more than a thousand i would expect the price to plummet over the next year.
