20 Songs, 1 Hour 17 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

There have been countless greatest-hits collections from The Doors over the years. Which is odd, considering the group issued just six studio albums with singer Jim Morrison between 1967 and 1971. It's advisable to someone with a keen interest in the group to collect each of those originals, as opposed to a hits collection, since eventually fandom will lead to seeking out the full albums. For those certain they won't need another Doors record, this is a decent 20-song collection, highlighted by the six-and-a-half-minute edit of "The End" (which clocked in at 11:41 on the debut album). Here, seven cuts are from the self-titled debut album, four are from Strange Days, three are from Waiting for the Sun, two are from Morrison Hotel, three are from L.A. Woman, and only "Touch Me" is from The Soft Parade.

iTunes shortened, The End ;(

I love The Doors, though I am a bit upset that iTunes shortened, The End. Thy removed about 5 minutes out of the song and you can't buy the full version on iTunes... Grr :(

iconic

Jim is one of the top 10 music icons of all time. He is probably top three for me. And this ‘best of’ collection is a great place to start - plus, it’s been mastered for iTunes. So much power and sexuality. Get ready to get turned on.

Why????

I bought "The End" from this album and unfortunately they cut out the end of "The End". This is unacceptable. The only way you can buy a full version of "The End" is if you buy an entire album, which I would do if other songs on the album were not censored. For example, the word "high" is taken out of "Break on Through". PLEASE FIX THIS ITUNES!! I am an adult and should be able to purchase uncensored music. Perhaps we should get Dee Snider involved??
