FIFTY years ago, in January 1967, The Doors broke through to the other side for the first time with its eponymous debut on Elektra Records.
The Doors would go on to sell millions of copies and made stars of John Densmore, Robby Krieger, Ray Manzarek, and Jim Morrison.
Today, the album is widely considered to be one of the all-time-classic rock and roll debuts.
To celebrate this landmark recording's 50th anniversary, the band will release The Doors: 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition.
The release offers a rare opportunity to hear the band on the verge of superstardom with live performances recorded during a March 7, 1967 show at the Matrix in San Francisco.
The Matrix recordings heard on this deluxe edition were sourced from the recently discovered original tapes, previously thought to be lost, and originally released in 2008.
This three CD / LP set will be available on March 31.
In addition, the music will also be available digitally.
