Prog Reviewer
2 stars This is a rahter poor Doors compilation. Only two great numbers of the band are featured : "Light My Fire" and "Back Door Man". Some other tracks are valuable as well as "Waiting For The Sun", "Land Ho!" and "Maggie M'Gill".

But let's face the truth, the majority of the songs are sub-par Doors ones. I do not posses this compilation as such (I doubt that it had been released on the CD format actually). It is made only for completionists. If you are one of them and pass in front of it you might grab it.

If you are a casual fan or just interested in the band, just pass your way or buy "The Best Of The Doors" which is to date the best compilation of this great band.

Even die-hard fans (like I am) can not find it interesting. What's the point in grouping five weak Doors numbers on a compilation ?

One star for the idea and still two stars for the music (but I am generous with my Doors review, I admit).
