Historic early recordings unearthed

Rhino will issue London Fog 1966 in December, a new archival Doors box set that features unearthed audio recorded at the LA club of the same name.

All tracks are previously unreleased and not even known to exist until recently and marks the earliest recordings of the band, finding the quartet mixing blues covers with early versions of Doors originals (Strange Days and You Make Me Real).

This London Fog 1966 set contains a CD and a ten-inch vinyl record (made to look like a test pressing) and is presented in a lift-top box package designed to look like a vintage storage box. Doors engineer Bruce Botnick recently mastered the audio for this collection.

In addition to the music, this box comes with packed with replica memorabilia including a poster, the set list handwritten by John Densmore, a program for the Royce Hall UCLA student film screening, plus a London Fog coaster. Liner notes include thoughts from Nettie Peña, someone who was not only at the London Fog show, but actually captured the audio on a ¼” reel-to-reel recorder (borrowed from her father who was a teacher for the Los Angeles Unified School District).  Five black and white 8″ x 10″ re-prints of Peña’s unpublished photos of the band taken on that evening are included in this collector’s set.

London Fog 1966 is a numbered, ‘limited edition’ of 18,000. This set is the first of many ‘special activities and releases’ coming to celebrate The Doors’ 50th anniversary in 2017. London Fog 1966 will be released on 9 December 2016.
