weird scenes

The Doors’ 1972 compilation Weird Scenes Inside The Gold Mine will be reissued as a limited edition double-LP Set for Record Store Day 2014.

Pressed on translucent amber swirled vinyl this long out-of-print double album was the first compilation to be released after Jim Morrison’s death in 1971. The collection mixes familiar cuts and deep tracksfrom six studio albums and includes two B-sides: Who Scared You (flipside of Wishful Sinful) and a cover of Willie Dixon’s (You Need Meat) Don’t Go No Further which was paired with Love Her Madly in 1971.

The special vinyl edition will be limited to 5,500 numbered copies worldwide. The good news is that if you can’t get to a shop on the day itself, Rhino will release Weird Scenes Inside The Gold Mine on CD for the very first time as a double-disc set on 20 May.
