The Doors Prep Unreleased Material for ‘Soft Parade’ 50th Anniversary Reissue

Three-disc set will boast “stripped-down” songs sans controversial string and horn arrangements

The Doors will include a trove of previously unreleased recordings on the upcoming 50th anniversary deluxe edition of their 1969 album, The Soft Parade, out October 18th.

The band teased the project with one such rarity: An raucous early version of their 1970 track “Roadhouse Blues” — which would appear on the band’s next album, Morrison Hotel — sung by organist Ray Manzarek, who’s cheekily billed as “Screamin’ Ray Daniels.”

The Soft Parade is one of the most controversial albums in the Doors’ catalogue, due to the string and horn arrangements on several tracks (one such song, “Touch Me,” did become one of the band’s biggest hits). The 50th anniversary edition of The Soft Parade will notably include “Doors only” versions of five tracks — “Tell All the People,” “Touch Me,” “Wishful Sinful,” “Runnin’ Blue” and “Who Scared You” — where the strings and horns have been removed. There will also be additional stripped-down versions of “Touch Me,” “Wishful Sinful” and “Runnin’ Blue” featuring new guitar parts from Robby Krieger.

The ‘Soft Parade’ is my least favorite Doors album.

NOW STREAMING: THE DOORS "ROADHOUSE BLUES" W/ "SCREAMIN' RAY DANIELS"

We're gonna let you in on the legend of "Screamin' Ray Daniels" a.k.a. Ray Manzarek. Yep, Ray took the lead a few times back when The Doors were recording SOFT PARADE. If you hadn’t heard this before, well, you’re in luck, because we're set to release an expanded version of SOFT PARADE in celebration of its 50th anniversary, and we’re offering up an early stream of Screamin’ Ray Daniels’ performance of “Roadhouse Blues.”
