EARLY DOORS

EARLY DOORS

I was surprised to see The Doors’ Perception box given such a dismissive review by Jason Draper in the very issue which had a huge cover piece by him on the group. A couple of points: the album remasters can’t be ‘as heard in 2002’ – it’s made plain in the booklet for the debut LP, for example, that the band only found that all previous releases of it were running slow (ie out of tune) in 2003! It’s also unfair to say the six DVDs could ‘fit on one disc’ – these are DVD-Audio discs, so most of the space is taken up by Dolby 5.1/DTS mixes of each LP.
By the way: anyone know why Neil Young’s co-writing credit is dropped from Come On Baby, Let’s Go Downtown on the new Fillmore 1970 CD?
