As we begin our slip into July (the SECOND half of the year!), we find that The Doors are getting some attention. Over the time of their short career, The Doors released a nice collection of singles and long players. In all, there were six studio albums beginning with their self-titled 1967 set, The Doors, and ending with their 1971 L.A. Woman album. They issued a live set, Absolutely Live (1970), and a compilation set, 13 (1970). Since then, there have been a wealth of Doors sets to keep the money exchanging hands.

On August 25, Elektra Records will revisit the territory of The Doors with two packages, three if you count their September Box release (more on this in a bit). The two sets will be called The Singles.

Watch for a 2CD compilation (content information is still unavailable), and a 2CD/BD set, which may likely present HD versions of songs, and maybe…maybe 5.1. Maybe. When content information becomes available, I’ll post an update.

On September 15, Elektra will follow-up with a 7″ vinyl singles box with 20 45s. This box is also being labeled as The Singles.
