'The Doors: R-Evolution' Announced for Blu-ray

Posted Thu Oct 3, 2013 at 06:00 PM PDT by

The Doors return to Blu-ray in style this December.

In an early announcement to retailers, Eagle Rock Entertainment is working on 'The Doors: R-Evolution' for a high-definition release on December 3.

Combining early TV appearances with The Doors’ own music films, R-Evolution illustrates how the band evolved from the constraints of mid-sixties television to a point where they had the creative input and power to shape how they were portrayed on screen. From an unknown L.A. band creating early music films to an established worldwide phenomenon executing creative control over their celluloid persona, R-Evolution shows the growth of The Doors from being forced to accept the formulaic television approach to taking control of the medium. It’s all in the title – the evolution of a band that helped revolutionize the way rock bands promote their art.

R-Evolution brings together a wealth of previously unreleased footage of The Doors. This incredible release features the classics “Light My Fire,” “People Are Strange,” “Hello, I Love You,” “Crawling King Snake,” “L.A. Woman,” “Moonlight Drive,” “Break On Through (To The Other Side),” and many more.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $19.98.

In addition to the DVD and Blu-ray, a Deluxe Edition will be available on each physical format, packaged in a 40-page DVD sized hardback book with a “scrapbook” style presentation on each track including lyrics, background info, trivia and photos. All footage has been carefully restored to the highest standards and the sound has been remixed and mastered for 5.1 by Bruce Botnick (MSRP $49.98 Deluxe Blu-ray).
