Editorial Reviews

1968's WAITING FOR THE SUN, the Doors' first chart-topper, delivered the #1 signature smash "Hello, I Love You" and the Top 40 hit "The Unknown Soldier." New liner notes penned by Paul Williams. Five bonus tracks include the 17-minute epic "Celebration Of The Lizard" and three previously unissued versions of "Not To Touch The Earth."

Customer Reviews

This is the best album by one of the best bands ever.
"kingofrock379"
First, "We Could Be So Good Together" which probes the way so many young men and women fell together in love/lust during those times.
Phil Rogers
My favorite songs include Wintertime Love, Spanish Caravan, Five To One, and Not To Touch The Earth.

OK.....What we have here is a failure for some folks to have done their homework. This is the 40th Anniversary "remix" of Waiting for the Sun. It's supposed to be a bit different from the original. In fact ALL of the Doors studio albums have been not only remastered, but remixed. Bonus tracks added as well. If you want the Doors sounding like the albums you grew up with, then pick up the last set of remastered CDs from 1999. If you want killer sound quality, bonus tracks and a new take on these classics pick the 40th Anniversary mixes on Rhino/Elektra. If you're a big fan like me, you'll have them both. At any rate, these editions are great! They are the same you would have gotten if you bought the "Perecptions" box set (no DVD 5.1 mixes here or video content though). Don't be bummed out, just shop wisely and enjoy!! Once again, these editions are a must for longtime fans.

The Doors were--and are--one of rock's greatest bands, with a unique sound all of their own. Flamboyant frontman Jim Morrison may have been the face & image of the group, but these guys always worked together like a classy four-headed machine to produce some of rock's greatest music. Picking a favorite Doors album is hard---even the criticized "Soft Parade" album has got some terrific Doors gems on it. But 1968's "Waiting For The Sun" is my personal favorite from The Doors. It's a great Doors classic that sees the band masterfully walking the tightrope between the hard rockers and the softer ballads. For their third album, singer Morrison, keyboardist Ray Manzarek, guitarist Robby Krieger & drummer John Densmore decided to go for an earthier, softer sound on some of the tracks, which lends this Doors album an extra kind of beauty. Even Jim Morrison himself sounds more down-to-earth on this album, as his vocals on the first two Doors albums were very echoey, making him sound like he was a disembodied spirit, or recording his vocals inside a cave. Not that there's anything wrong with that---I love "The Doors" & "Strange Days"--- but Jim sounded on those first two albums like he was always floating in the clouds above his three musical co-horts. But on "Waiting For The Sun," Jim's voice is warmer, not so echoey, and on definite equal footing in the mix with his bandmates, which is a plus.Great Doors songs are everywhere on "Waiting For The Sun"---the huge hit "Hello I Love You," the beautiful "Love Street," the bizarre "Not To Touch The Earth" (an extract from an even longer Doors composition, "The Return Of The Lizard King," found on the live "In Concert" CD), the haunting "My Wild Love," and other Doors classics like "The Unknown Soldier," "Spanish Caravan," and the terrific rocker, "Five To One.Read more ›

I bought this new version of "Waiting for the Sun" to get a studio-version of the legendary unreleased song "Celebration of the Lizard". Obviously the strongest part of the song is, what was released on the original album as "Not to Touch the Earth", and the track is what it says, "a work in progress". Still interesting moments. The other takes of "Not to Touch the Earth" which are included as bonus-tracks have made me realize how good a song this really is.

What surprised me the most when I listened through the album was that I thought it sounded different. Was it really that long since I last heard it? I did not realize that the album had been both remastered and remixed. I guess it will take some time to get used to these new "versions" - but the sound is really crisp and clear, and if I want to hear the old mixes I can always return to the originals.

The original album contains some the Doors' most poetic and melodic moments like "Yes, The River Knows", the exquisite "Love Street" , which is one of the highlights of the album. The moving "Summer`s Almost Gone". "Wintertime Love" and "Spanish Caravan" are other highlights.

"Not to Touch the Earth" and "Five to One" : Classic Doors !!!
The hit singles "Hello I Love You" and "The Unknown Soldier" may not have aged as well as the rest of the album`s songs. Except of course the weak "My Wild Love" which probably always will annoy me.

Having read a few reviews on this website it is apparent that a lot of people consider this one of the best Doors albums. It's good; don't get me wrong but it doesn't hold up to such albums as their debut, L. A. Woman, Morrison Hotel, and Strange Days.

Its better than The Soft Parade and every song on the album is good, but it lacks the energy that the other albums featured. Here's the track list;

1. Hello, I Love You-5/5-I love this song. Catchy and the lyrics are great.

2. Love Street-5/5-This song is interesting. Morrison sings it in a very sensual voice.

3. Not to Touch the Earth-5/5-This is one of my favorites. The song sounds haunting; The keyboards are very psychedelic and cool. The song is compiled from excerpts from "The Celebration of the Lizard" a poem by Morrison.

4. Summer's Almost Gone-4/5-OK song. Not the best.

5. Wintertime Love-4/5-It's really short. It's a pretty good song, but not the best.

6. The Unknown Soldier-5/5-This song took a while to grow on me; but it's one of their best. The lyrics are amazing.

7. Spanish Caravan-5/5-Guitar & Keyboards are amazing in this song.

8. My Wild Love-5/5-Don't know what it is about this song, but it's great. The indian chanting in the background (I guess that's what it is) is a great touch.

9. We Could Be So Good Together-4/5-(No Comment)

10. Yes, The River Knows-5/5-I love the lyrics in this one. The song is good as well though.

11. Five to One-5/5-"No one here gets out alive."
