Doors Pack ‘Waiting for the Sun’ 50th Anniversary Reissue With Unreleased Songs

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.
