Anyone else have a copy full of pops and clicks - mine sounds awful for a new press. Gonna have to give it a clean and see how it fairs
  • Virn
Long time doors fan. I have all of the studio albums, live, some live boots on vinyl, and a few duplicates. This triple lp clear in an awesome trifold is the crown jewel. Finally got to spin it up this morning. All of the reviews are true. This is a must-have for a doors fan. Oh ya, needs to be played LOUD!
  • caster
I received my copy of this, and I got two Side C&D. The sound is amazing. I am glad they used the original master tapes, and not the digital source used on the CD release. Although I am very upset that I can't listen to all of it as my copy is messed up. I have contacted Rhino Records and they said they are trying to figure out how many copies are messed up. Then they are going to fix the issue.
  • Banal
Sound check a complete waste of time otherwise excellent all round
  • Mozel
I have the european edition, It's not on cristal clear vinyl and has a made in Europe on the center labels
  • Opimath
Yes, me too. Looks like a different release to the US issue listed.
  • Prorahun
This was my first RSD, just curious how much this album was on that day. My store wasn't able to get it in
  • Fonceiah
I paid £25 in my local sounds absolutely amazing very clear sound and looks great on clear vinyl
  • Getaianne
Thanks for the tip, just ordered the cheapest one I could find (about double what you paid :-(. That suck about your tunrtable, hope you can get it fixed soon
  • Umge
Think I picked it up for €34 yet to give it a spin though the motor on my turntable went the same morning :(
  • Utchanat
I've had this show on CD since '03 or so, and it's always been a favorite, but when I heard it was getting pressed for RSD, I had mixed feelings. Like some of you, I'm wary of concert recordings on wax, due to the possibilities of broken-up segues, halted momentum, songs not fitting on one side, or for longer shows, the constant flipping / replacing of discs. However, due to my long-time admiration of the set, I felt compelled to buy it anyway. I don't usually write reviews, but I wanted to let anybody on the fence know: it is worth it. This is an absolute pleasure to listen to. The pacing works perfectly with the limitations of the format. The sound is crystal clear-- even better than the mix on the CD. If you like The Doors, do yourself a favor and pick this up.
  • Camper
100% accurate, this album sounds amazing. Get it if you can!
  • Honeirsil
Got mine this morning from my local record store, worth the wait in the queue than paying some of the prices that are going to appear on here.
  • Throw her heart
Disappointing to see it for sale on the marketplace at 2-3x the price, before RSD has even happened! Get out to your local, join the queue and save your money!!
  • Terr
It's a damn shame, sucks that I don't have a record store nearby to go on RSD, hoping somewhere will have some left next week for a decent price
  • Kriau
I got it for £27, get it up ya
