A 50th anniversary edition of the Doors' most commercially successful album includes previously unreleased studio mixes and live recordings. Plus, more noteworthy new albums and a Bruce Springsteen bio.
What can you say about The Doors? They were intense and self-indulgent, provocative and lyrical. These oppositions only begin to describe their candle, which burned at both ends and in the middle, too.
