Here’s a look at the packaging for the deluxe blu-ray version of Eagle Rock’s The Doors R-Evolution release.
This release (also available on DVD) includes many video and film rarities include the band’s full performance on “Shebang”, an interview with Dick Clark, a colour version of the band’s appearance on “Malibu U” (and never before seen outtakes), the complete, colour version of Hello, I Love You from German TV and the director’s cut of the 1985 L.A. Woman short film.
R-Evolution brings together a wealth of previously unreleased footage of The Doors. Combining early TV appearances with their own music films it illustrates how The Doors evolved from the constraints of late sixties television to a point where they had the creative input and power to shape how they were portrayed on screen. Throughout the unique charisma and talent of The Doors comes across, whether it be on a lightweight pop show or on a film created from their own imaginations, along with some of the most influential music ever made.
Deluxe Edition is packaged in a 40 page DVD sized hard back book with a scrapbook style presentation on each track including lyrics, background info, trivia & photos.
Details around bonus features have also recently emerged and they include a new edit by Murray Lerner of Break On Through (To The Other Side) from the 1970 Isle of Wight festival and a Ford Motor Company promotional film from 1966 with The Doors providing the soundtrack! Some online retailers are listing an audio commentary by band members as one of the bonus features, but that is not confirmed (it is not listed on the official Doors site).
Doors R-Evolution is out on 25 November 2013.
