Description

"Waiting For The Sun", the third Doors album and the first to make it to the top of the charts, contained the characteristic top hit "Hello, I Love You" as well as the top 40 hit "The Unknown Soldier".

Slant Magazine wrote that "Waiting For The Sun" contains some of the most beautiful, ingenious and catchy songs of the Doors: "Love Street", a poetic sketch of the street in the artists' quarter where Morrison lived with his wife Pamela Courson; the wistful "Summer's Almost Gone" with the pretty chorus "Morning found us calmly unaware / Noon burned gold into our hair" as well as the peaceful piano ballad "Yes, The River Knows". According to Slant, Morrison was increasingly trying to emulate one of his idols, Frank Sinatra - "they had an insatiable appetite for women and alcohol in common.

"Waiting For The Sun" was also one of the most militant political work of the Doors. "The Unknown Soldier" was an open anti-war play, a reaction to the hostilities of the Vietnam era that were boiling on the home front.

Analogue Productions and Quality Record Pressings are proud to announce that all six studio LPs - "The Doors", "Strange Days", "Waiting For The Sun", "Soft Parade", "Morrison Hotel" and "L. A. Woman" - will be released at 200g / 45rpm. All varnish foils were cut by Doug Sax from the original analog master tapes, except "The Doors", this title was mastered from the best available tape copy.

Truly an authentic republication project in which the original recordings were made with tube equipment, the tape recorder for playing the master tapes is a tube equipment and the cutting system is the same: tubes throughout!

Now is not the time to mope - the Doors now on Analogue Productions!
