DEAD LINKS

NOTE : DEAD LINKS
We'd like to thank everyone for preventing us of dead links. For the moment, we are note able to re-up them.

Feel free to keep on preventing us of those dead links. We will update them when we (I and Jeb-E-Diah) have more time to (understand : from september). Some of them will be partially or completely repacked considering albums which would have been issued thereafter and surely with new and improved artworks.

Stay tuned !

THE DOORS (ABO#396)

THE DOORS
MUSIC IS YOUR ONLY FRIEND
(1967-1978)

What's the point of Baistophing THE DOORS ? I know it could have been a useless effort. Their 1985 Best Of was indeed a really good one but was formated for LPs. This double-LP Best of lasted 85 minutes and my goal, here, was to manage to Baistophe that major band in a single CD. With 10 minutes long songs such as The End or When the Music's Over, it should have been an impossible challenge. I sure thought of editing those both songs but one was uncuttable, and the other one was a sacrifice to edit. I then thought of the edited version of The End included in Apocalypse Now OST. This choice may be taken for a blasphemy, but, on one and, I don't think this is a bad cut and it's quite another atmosphere and on the other hand, The End had was already chosen by SFP to illustrate his last VAC Baistophe. So my choice was made.
This Baistophe is really a personnal compilation made with my own tastes. So you won't have to be surprised not to find songs like The Crystal Ship, Roadhouse Blues or Hello I Love. Songs I do love but not enough compared with the ones I kept, to begin with Indian Summer, Peace Frog or The WASP that I thought unfair not to be on the 1985 compilation.




Make your own opinion. This must be the proof that a band like The Doors, with 5 major albums, can't be Baistophe on a single CD...

Many thanks for the re-up, selection and quality excellent as always. It's always fascinating to see how judicious reshuffling and editing can present even the best known acts in a completely fresh light...

Tough band to do this with, I agree.
Love the choice of Spanish Caravan.
And Waiting for the Sun has always been a favorite.
I could go the rest of my life without hearing Light my Fire again, though. ha.

Thanks.

Same here with Love Me Two Times but I guess the tough art of baistophe has to go with some compromises to the general taste...
