Without doubt the most wide spread of all quad albums as it only was sold as a four-channel mix the first time after release. And since the large public still craved Doors albums and this was compatible down to regular stereo, most people bought and used it as such. Not an expert on Doors original mixes and don't know how these were made, but suppose the album stereo versions were used for the re-mix. Listening to it in two-channel I get the same uplifting feeling as from a good mono mix after just hearing the stereo for a long time, or vice versa. The same favorite songs, but from a different angle - with shifting dynamics, clarity or balance - brings a reignition and make me fall in love again. Issued and reissued as quad or folded to regular stereo on vinyl, cassette, 8-track, reel-to-reel and CD. As I understand four different masters have been used through the years - this 1973, one from 1985, one from 2000 and the final so far 2015. Add to that the vinyl alone exists with at least 6 diverging label designs. So don't have a clue of any time line or what's on which. In this case I just listen and enjoy. I'm having a hard time figuring out exactly what the fonts on the matrixes means, but if anyone knows - this copy have EQ 5035 A-1 PRG MY -I -II/EQ 5035 B PRG MY -I -II. It came with label as shown here, glossy cover and "Quadradisc" inner. (YZÄ*) (DÖÖW*)
