    They've been announcing a release date and posponing it for months now. I'll believe it when they show up on my doorsteps.

    This is the first time i've seen a release date. Been waiting too. I wasn't aware they had dates earlier that had been postponed.

    About every other month they were announcing a new date. I wouldn't hold my breath. Like I said, when it shows up on my doorsteps.

    Damnit, didn't know that. Maybe this time they really really mean it. I hope.

    A few words from Acoustic Sounds......

    You've been patient - very patient - and we appreciate it. At long last, we have for you some dates for our much anticipated Doors 45-RPM and SACD reissue series. The first two LP titles - The Doors and Strange Days are right around the corner.

    A note to our customers: Again, we appreciate your patience in waiting for these products to come to market. We know it's been a long wait, and believe us, nobody's more excited than we are. But please understand, whenever we set out to do a reissue project, our goal is to surpass any issue or reissue that's been done previous to ours. Doing that takes a lot of time, effort and money.


    Beginning with securing the absolute analog masters and on to getting approval for the artwork, the printing of the labels and jackets, the manufacturing of the product, etc., etc. the process involves a lot more back-and-forth negotiating, prodding and waiting than many people may realize. Many of the steps in the process are out of our control. But know this: We would rather have our products come out a year late and be proud of those products than to meet a street date. We don't cut corners. When a record label tries to tell us a tape copy or digital file we'll do, we tell them that no, it won't. You wouldn't believe what kind of an effort this can involve. We fight for quality, but it often means waiting a little longer. When our proofs are held up in a label's legal approval department, we're calling and emailing continuously to keep the project moving. We call it stokin' the coals. Sometimes we get results; other times we've got to push a little harder. In many cases, we're dealing with major corporations and major artists. Often, we need to get approval from the label, from the artist's management and from the artist themselves. Any one step can significantly hold up the process.

    The point is this: We know it can be frustrating when we announce products far in advance of when they come out. We know it can be frustrating when we don't meet the street dates we initially published. Listen, we're trying, and we're trying hard. And so while we hope we'll hit all of these dates and while we'll do everything we possibly can to make that happen, street dates are subject to change. It's the nature of the game we play.

    Thank you for your support. Thank you for your patience. And thank you for your business.
    I appreciate their efforts to bring us new SACD's.

    Better be a damn nice box for a $100. Getting a little greedy IMO.

    Yeah, I don't see a box being worth almost $100.00. I just pre-ordered the six individual SACD's. The value may go way up for the boxed set version however because they are limited to 2,500 pieces.

    I'm sure they will. I'm tempted to buy one and just put it away.

    I wonder how the SQ will compare the DVD-A boxset a few years ago.

    I just got Waiting for the Sun today on vinyl. Only listened to a few songs so far, but my first impressions are very positive. Really nice packaging and great sound.

    I plan to get most of the SACD's and am looking forward to LA Woman.

    Just want to say that L.A. Woman on vinyl (45-RPM) is outstanding! I couldn't be happier with this purchase

    I've recently gotten The Doors Live In NYC vinyl. It's not 45 RPM, but it is definitely good!
    Good music, a good source, and good power can make SDA's sing. Tubes make them dance.

    For me just getting into SACD's its good to know that there's still plans on producing more of these and hopefully the quality is as good as the ones I've already bought. Waiting to get through the red tape and getting good quality is worth it to me!

    I recently got Strange Days on 180g vinyl (I think this one has been out for awhile). It was weird at first because I had been listening to a pretty beat up copy for awhile and had gotten used to the surface noise...but man, the more I listen to my new copy, the better it sounds.

    SD is my favorite doors album btw

    WTF?
    I received my LA Woman SACD and it is packaged in the old DVD-A plastic case and says Made in Austria by Elektra.
    I pre-ordered this back in november as a Analogue Productions remaster.
    I sent an email and will see what they say.
    BUMMER DOOD!
