Continuing The Doors‘ 50th anniversary celebration, special reissues of the band’s second album, Strange Days, will be released on November 17.
A deluxe, two-CD version of the album, including remastered stereo and original mono mixes of Strange Days, will be available for just under 19 bucks, while a vinyl LP featuring the mono mix will be sold for just under $22. The mono and stereo Strange Days tracks also will be released digitally and via streaming services.
Following the January 1967 release of The Doors’ hit self-titled debut album, Strange Days arrived in September of that same year, peaking at #3 on the Billboard 200. The record yielded the hits “People Are Strange” and “Love Me Two Times,” which reached #12 and #25, respectively, on the Billboard Hot 100.
Other memorable tunes on the album include the title track, “Moonlight Drive,” the spoken-word “Horse Latitudes” and the epic, almost-11-minute-long “When the Music’s Over.” Strange Days has been certified platinum for sales of more than 1 million copies in the U.S.
Original Doors engineer Bruce Botnick produced the reissue, which also features new liner notes by respected music journalist David Fricke and rare photos of the band.
Here’s the Strange Days track list:
“You’re Lost Little Girl”
“Love Me Two Times”
“People Are Strange”
“My Eyes Have Seen You”
“I Can’t See Your Face in My Mind”
