Album of the Day
The Soft Parade (50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition)
The Doors’ fourth studio album, THE SOFT PARADE, became the band’s fourth straight Top Ten album when it was released in 1969. Incorporating brass and string arrangements on several tracks, the Elektra collection features such favorites as “Wild Child” and Touch Me,” one of the group’s biggest hits. Rhino commemorates the album’s 50th anniversary with a new 3-CD/1-LP set that includes the original studio release newly remastered by longtime Doors engineer Bruce Botnick, B-side “Who Scared You” and more than a dozen unreleased songs (stripped down “Doors Only” versions of orchestrated tracks, rehearsals and outtakes among them). THE SOFT PARADE: 50TH ANNIVERSARY DELUXE EDITION also includes a hand-numbered 36x18 lithograph of the interior vinyl gatefold artwork – but only if purchased at Rhino.com while supplies last.
