Though The Doors’ debut was one of the musical highlights of 1967, it wasn’t the L.A. quartet’s only album that year. Strange Days followed in September and was another hit, peaking at #3 on the Billboard chart and featuring classics like Love Me Two Times, When The Music’s Over and the title track. Mixing new songs written on the road with some penned before the band’s debut, the Elektra collection benefits from an increased budget, access to an eight-track recorder and additional time to experiment in the studio.
“We all thought it was the best album,” producer Paul Rothchild once said of Strange Days, and while there's strong competition for that title, give the platinum-certified set another spin and you may be inclined to agree.
