Making of the Doors 45RPM Vinyl re-issues

Here is a pretty neat video on the making of the Doors 45RPM Vinyl releases from start to finish on Analogue Productions and Quality Records Pressings:

I keep debating if it's worth buying these. I have the original versions from when they were released.

I had the box set ordered, then cancelled. My conscience was bothering me, $450.00 for the set with $50.00 of that being the "box set" designation and adding nothing to the sound.

Have you heard any of these?
Albert, yes I have heard them and they are spectacular. I am not a Doors fan, so I really have nothing to compare them to. These are very nice for what I know about the Doors recordings...which isn't much.
The '68 Hollywood Bowl concert is suppose to be re released this fall.

The Doors supplied plenty of post-Independence Day fireworks on July 5, 1968 when the legendary quartet played the Holl
ywood Bowl, a concert that is considered to be the band’s finest on film. For the first time, the film from the historic performance has been painstakingly restored using the original camera negatives and the audio has been remixed and mastered from original multi-tracks by the group’s engineer Bruce Botnick. This new restoration offers a stunning visual upgrade from earlier versions and will give fans the closest experience to being there live along side Jim Morrison, John Densmore, Robby Krieger and Ray Manzarek, who opined, “You can hear it as if you were at the Hollywood Bowl, on stage with us.”

LIVE AT THE BOWL ’68 will include three previously unreleased tracks from the performance. Technical issues with the recording of “Hello, I Love You,” “The WASP (Texas Radio And The Big Beat),” and “Spanish Caravan” prevented them from being released in the past. Now, through meticulous restoration of the audio, all three will be included, marking the first time the concert has been available in its entirety.

i recently purchased the self titled and strange days. i was very disappointed with them sonically. the packaging was beautiful, but that's not why i buy lp's.
i found both lp's to be so weak and thin in the bottom end that they were unlistenable. sure, there was lot's of clean detail, but i couldn't get past the severe lack of bottom end. very disillusioned with analogue productions on this one. i consequently sold both at a loss and am pursuing original pressings, of which i have recently heard on my system and they are leaps and bounds ahead of these re-releases.
Thank you Corby,

I have just about resigned myself to purchasing just "Morrision Hotel" when it comes available. It will be interesting to compare to the original pressing that I've had since release.

Mofimadness is a true music lover, I wish he could compare with the originals pressings like you have.

I wonder what happened to the bass?
It's funny this thread comes up now because I just pre-ordered this set last night after much debate myself. Corgy's is really the first completely negative feedback I've seen. Fremer thought both Strange Days and the debut were great. Whoever does "My Vinyl Review" felt the same. I've heard neither so far but love The Doors and am quite disappointed with the production quality of Rhino's lizard skin box, most of mine are on noisy vinyl.
I really want to believe Chad's QRP plant will be a reliable source of quality reissues. I applaud hid effort to do it right. I realize everything coming out of there hasn't been perfect however. I have Tea For the Tillerman, Shelby Lynn, Muddy Waters and Norah Jones from QRP and have been pretty happy. His packaging is first rate. My experience with these and the positive feedback played into my leap of faith on the Doors box.
Hopefully Corgy's experience is as isolated as it appears to be thus far. If I read more complaints I may end up canceling just as Albert did. I really hope in early October I have a beautifully packaged great sounding set arrive on my doorstep. The Doors are one of the few bands worthy of this outlay IMO.

I have bought a half dozen of the recent "Quality" pressings, with mixed results. My friend and I both receved label misprints on our "Ella and Louis Again" 45rpm pressings (wrong artist on one, and duplicate titles on another!). Plus I thought the sibilance was very noticeable in my setup, and prefer the MFSL pressing by far. My Shelby Lynn and Lori Lieberman pressings are too noisy for my liking.

I was tempted to order the Doors Box set but decided not to. I'm sure this is the exception and not the rule for the majority of the pressings. The other titles I own sound fantastic.
I have read of many problems with the Ella and Louis title. I have Shelby Lynn also which has great sound but was not perfectly flat. I used my Vinyl flat on it and it lays flat now and sounds great. I get the impression QRP is having a few growing pains, especially as they ramp up production. (my Tea For The Tillerman is perfect, their first) They seem to have their ducks in a row and are trying to control for everything. Even so, there are enough variables involved that problems can come up. They have only been in operation for a little more than a year. I hope the Doors Box will have benefitted from their brief experience. Worst case, it can always go back.
