I picked up all the others in this series with no problem and no issues with SQ. However, when it came to this one could I find a reasonably priced copy ??? It seemed odd to me that this one Doors album had been released then sold out quickly. Maybe the public were secret fans of Waiting For The Sun ??

Then I pop on here and read the comments from other buyers and it seems that something has gone terribly wrong with the vinyl pressing. So, now I’m wondering if Rhino have recalled all the copies out there ? Bit of a crapola really as, like I said, I’ve got the other 5 and am happy with those, and now I’ve got an annoying gap where WFTS should be. I’m not even going to keep searching for a second hand copy if it’s that bad. Thankfully I’ve got a standard, nice pressing of the album, but even so ……….🤬

Mine sounds fantastic! No noise. No pops. No crackle. Nice, full sound. Lovely.

I have the version of this release which is not SR. The J-card is exactly this release, but "SR" is not printed on the shell under the catalog number.

The mono EKL covers with Ernest J credits as printers are non flipbacks cover. Probably came later theen non credited sleeve by printers.

Yes details are misleading. This stereo pressing has SILVER LETTERING NOT WHITE. Cover is non laminated often on early copies found a mono cover EKL .

Dogshit packaging, impossible to get the CD out without almost ripping the cardboard.

Sound quality on all "The doors" Japanese 2nd pressings is quite poor. Music is great, but if you want a better sound choose dcc 24kt gold versions.

I have owned the QRP 45rpm version I always come back to this copy!
I find it sounds very nice not as critical in the top end like the 45rpm version it lack this 33rpm

The B side of the LP is tragic... lots of distortion and scratching sound during spanish caravan, my wild live and so on... what the hell happened? There was no QA? Maybe my copy is shit but i think, the whole pressing is a HUGE defect! I used my unplayed copy!
