Doors’ ‘Waiting for the Sun’ getting 50-year release

News / Preorders / June 27, 2018

The Doors’ Waiting for the Sun is getting reissued as part of a 50-year celebration for the LP. The remastered stereo mix (from the original master tapes) is being released on 180-gram vinyl. The CD will also include a bonus collection of mixes and live tracks.

In addition, they’re also releasing a 7″ single for “Hello, I Love You,” backed by original B-side “Love Street.” These will be the “rare mono radio mixes of the songs that were given exclusively to radio stations for airplay in 1968.”

According to Rolling Stone: This version of “Hello, I Love You” was first available last year as part of The Singles CD collection and is making its vinyl debut here, while the “Love Street” mix is being released commercially for the first time.  The 7” features a recreation of the unique black and white promotional label and is housed in its original Elektra records paper sleeve.

The 7″ is coming out on Aug. 3 and the LP on Sept. 14.
