Limited edition 7-inch vinyl single

The Doors celebrates the band's 50th Anniversary of its first No. 1 hit with a limited edition, 7" vinyl reissue of "Light My Fire" that features artwork from the Japanese version of the single. Limited to 7,500 copies.

Recorded in 1966, the song "Light My Fire" was released on their self-titled debut album in January 1967. It was then released as an edited shortened single for radio play in April 1967 and spent three weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in July 1967.

With an intoxicating, genre-blending sound, provocative and uncompromising songs, and the mesmerizing power of singer Jim Morrison's poetry and presence, The Doors had a transformative impact not only on popular music but on popular culture. The Doors' arrival on the rock scene in 1967 marked not only the start of a string of hit singles and albums that would become stone classics, but also of something much bigger — a new and deeper relationship between creators and audience.

They released six studio albums in all, as well as a live album and a compilation, before Morrison's death in 1971. Their electrifying achievements in the studio and onstage were unmatched in the annals of rock.
