Hybrid Multichannel SACD

 

The surround sound program on the Doors SACDs comes from the original 96K, 24-bit files mixed and mastered by Bruce Botnick for the DVD Audio Doors/Perception release. Those mixes were made from the original one-inch, eight track, 15 i.p.s. analog master tapes. For the SACDs, the mixes were then up-sampled without filters to DSD using the Weiss Saracon format converter and authored by Gus Skinas at the Super Audio Center.

Waiting For The Sun, The Doors’ third album and its first chart-topper, delivered the No. 1 signature smash “Hello, I Love You” and the Top 40 hit “The Unknown Soldier.”

Slant Magazine proclaims that Waiting For The Sun contains some of The Doors’ prettiest, most genial lilts: “Love Street,” a fictionalized sketch of the Bohemian street where Morrison lived with his wife, Pamela Courson; the wistful “Summer’s Almost Gone,” which includes the lovely refrain, “Morning found us calmly unaware/Noon burned gold into our hair”; and the placid piano ballad “Yes, The River Knows.” More and more, says Slant, Morrison was starting to emulate one of his idols, Frank Sinatra — “after all, they had an insatiable taste for women and alcohol in common.”

Waiting For The Sun was also some of The Doors’ most combative, political work. "The Unknown Soldier" was a barefaced antiwar attack, a reaction to the Vietnam-era hostilities brewing on the home front.

Analogue Productions and Quality Record Pressings are proud to announce that six studio LP titles — The DoorsStrange Days,Waiting For The SunSoft ParadeMorrison Hotel and L.A. Woman —  are featured on 200-gram vinyl, pressed at 45 rpm. All six titles are also available on Hybrid Multichannel SACD! All were cut from the original analog masters by Doug Sax, with the exception of The Doors, which was made from the best analog tape copy.

A truly authentic reissue project, the masters were recorded on tube equipment, and the tape machine used for the transfer of these releases is a tube machine, as is the cutting system. Tubes baby!
