Woman'. Demand should be high for this soundtrack as the US recently released the special edition 2 DVD set. 1991 release. Standard jewelcase.
Q (6/91) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...should appeal as a memory aid to new converts who enjoyed the film and also to Doors completists looking for a new permutation of tracks..."
The Doors: Jim Morrison (vocals), Robbie Krieger (guitar), Ray Manzarek (piano, organ) and John Densmore (drums).
Also features The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and Chorus conducted by Robert Shaw.
Featuring a good cross-section of the band's classic rock staples, the soundtrack to Oliver Stone's epic film, The Doors, offers an effective portrait of the band. ~ David Jehnzen
