Editors’ Notes When Jim Morrison died unexpectedly on July 3, 1971, it abruptly ended an important chapter in rock 'n' roll history. The three remaining Doors soldiered on for two more albums, but it soon became clear that it was over. By the late '70s, a Doors revival was in full effect. And in the era just before the CD age, the remaining members began to discover old tapes worth releasing. In 1997, they assembled Box Set, the first serious collection of Doors hits that added a chunk of previously unreleased material. 2006's Perception box set, however, marked the first time that much of the material here saw the light of day. For those who own the proper studio albums, Behind Closed Doors is a chance to hear The Doors in action, working the classic songs through various takes while the members were introducing new ideas that didn't always make the final cuts. The alternate takes from the 40th-anniversary edition of L.A. Woman are also here, almost creating an entirely new version of the band's classic final album with Jim Morrison.
