Re-release of the second full-length studio album by legendary American Psychedelic Rock band.
A tremendous debut album and indeed one of the best first-time outings in Rock history, introducing the band's fusion of Rock, Blues, Classical, Jazz, and poetry with a knockout punch.
Recorded in 1966 at Sunset Sound Recorders, Hollywood, California, it was produced by Paul A. Rothchild and released on January 4, 1967. The album features their breakthrough single "Light My Fire" and the lengthy song "The End" with its Oedipal spoken word section.
The Doors was central to the progression of Psychedelic Rock, and has been critically acclaimed. 
The original album has sold 20,000,000 copies, and has been inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. Song "Light My Fire" was also inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. It has since been frequently ranked by critics as one of the greatest albums of all time; according to Acclaimed Music, it is the 27th most ranked record on all-time lists.
In 2000, “The Doors” was voted number 46 in Colin Larkin's "All Time Top 1000 Albums". It’s also ranked No. 75 on Q Magazine's "100 Greatest Albums Ever" and No. 226 in NME Magazine's "500 Greatest Albums of All Time".
In 2007, Rolling Stone put “The Doors” on their list of the 40 essential albums of 1967. In 2012, the album was ranked No. 42 in Rolling Stone Magazine's list of "500 Greatest Albums of all Time". In 2015, the Library of Congress selected "The Doors" for inclusion in the National Recording Registry based on its cultural, artistic or historical significance.
