Reviewed by William Ruhlmann:
In 1970, Elektra Records released a Doors hits collection called 13. In 1971, the Doors scored two more hits, «Love Her Madly» and «Riders on the Storm,» and their lead singer, Jim Morrison, died. In 1972, Elektra released a two-LP anthology containing «Love Her Madly» and «Riders on the Storm,» along with a lot of album tracks. But there was no single-LP compilation that contained all the Doors’ hits, from «Light My Fire» to «Riders on the Storm.» This 11-track 1973 album was an attempt to address that problem, and at the time of its release, containing seven of the Doors’ eight Top 40 hits (the exception being «The Unknown Soldier»), it was the best Doors greatest-hits collection on the market. In 1985, Elektra assembled a new, two-LP album also called The Best of the Doors (Elektra 60345), which contained the seven hits from the earlier album plus 11 other tracks. In 1991, the later album was reissued as a two-CD set with a bonus track added. The initial Best Of (5035) is out of print.
