Not really sure what to make of this. I really enjoyed the Elektra reissue of Morrison Hotel and that is what prompted me to pick this reissue up - but it just sounds kind of 'ok.' This particular stereo mix, as other people have said, is a bit annoying to listen to... (particularly on 'Break On Through'). However, while it by no means sounds bad, it has inspired me to consider splashing out on an original mono pressing at some point.

Bummed that this is the edited version.
Aside from that though, it sounds lovely.

Hi everyone? How is sounding this vinyl? Recently I bought the mono version with the original mono mixes, where the sound is so overdrived, especially in the Light my Fire. thanks for your answer

This record sounds beautiful. I quite like the "fake stereo", I find it transcendent.
The sound quality is perfect, puts you right in the room with the band.
This record is so cheap, it's almost a sin not to add it to your collection if you don't have a version.
An unrivaled piece of music.

One of my favourite albums ever, a must have for everyone. Too bad the stereo mix is that kind of old "fake" stereo, that just puts some instruments on the right channel and the others on the left (bugs me a little while listening to it on speakers, and makes it impossible to use headphones). I'd love to own a mono mix some time in the future. Also, the sound quality itself isn't bad, but could be much better.

Great album. Classic tracks from epic movies and the great 70´s. A must have on the "black gold"
