The Doors’ ‘Waiting For the Sun’ Gets Deluxe for 50th

The Doors’ ongoing 50th anniversary celebration continues with a Deluxe Edition of their third studio album, Waiting For The Sun. In an announcement on June 26, Rhino outlined how it will commemorate the album’s golden anniversary on Sept. 14 with a 2-CD/1-LP collection featuring 14 previously unreleased tracks and a new version of the 1968 album’s original stereo mix on both CD and 180-gram vinyl LP, which has been newly remastered from the original master tapes by Bruce Botnick, the Doors’ longtime engineer/mixer and producer.

Waiting For The Sun, released on July 3, 1968, was the band’s third platinum album in less than two years, and the first to top the album chart. The album contributed to the Doors’ repertoire with classics like “The Unknown Soldier,” “Five To One” and the #1 smash, “Hello, I Love You.”

The set also includes a second disc of 14 previously unreleased tracks: nine recently discovered “rough mixes” from the album recording sessions and five live songs from a 1968 concert that the band’s Jim Morrison, Ray Manzarek, Robbie Krieger and John Densmore performed in Copenhagen, Denmark.
