50th Anniversary Edition 180-gram LP + 2CDs

14 Never-before-released 1968 studio and live recordings

Including selections from a 1968 Copenhagen concert

The Doors, in 1968. released Waiting For The Sun, their first chart-topper, delivering the No. 1 signature smash "Hello, I Love You" and the Top 40 hit "The Unknown Soldier."

The Doors will celebrate the 50th anniversary of their third album Waiting for the Sun with a reissue featuring 14 previously unreleased tracks. The two-CD, one LP set is available to pre-order ahead of its September 14th release via Rhino.

Of the 14 unreleased recordings, nine are early "rough mixes" cut during the original recording sessions, which longtime Doors engineer/mixer Bruce Botnick discovered while digging through his archives. "I prefer some of these rough mixes to the finals, as they represent all of the elements and additional background vocals, different sensibilities on balances, and some intangible roughness, all of which are quite attractive and refreshing," Botnick said.

The remaining five unreleased tracks were recorded live at a September 17th, 1968 Doors concert in Copenhagen, Denmark. The live selections include Waiting for the Sun staples "Hello, I Love You," "Five to One" and "The Unknown Soldier," as well as "Back Door Man" and "The WASP (Texas Radio and the Big Beat)."

The 50th anniversary version of Waiting for the Sun will also feature a remastered version of the album's original stereo mix on both CD and 180-gram vinyl. Botnick handled the remaster using the original master tapes.
