Even then the 45rpm cut's spaciousness, dynamics and bass power and particularly the overall sound on what are the inner tracks on the original LP are better on the double 45 cut using an all vacuum tube chain just as was the original...

the double 45 has greater dynamics, detail, spaciousness and appropriate grit - everything the smooooth 192k/24 bit sourced version lacks...Definitely on my recommended list and the Quality Record Pressings vinyl is superb." Music = 9/11; Sound = 9/11 - Michael Fremer, Analog Planet, July 2012

"...This double 45 is so far superior sounding to the red label original and Japanese late '70s reissue I have here ... easily the greatest version of it for those who are fans. I have never heard so much detail revealed and such blackness behind the notes, nor have the strings and horns been so well reproduced. The laminated gatefold packaging is a treasure you'll want to polish when your grimy fingerprints dull the luster."  Music = 8/11; Sound = 10/11 — Michael Fremer, Analog Planet

Two 45 rpm LPs pressed on 200-gram vinyl at Quality Record Pressings

Part of The Doors reissue series proudly presented by Analogue Productions and Quality Record Pressings! 

The tunes on the Doors' fourth album covered the broadest range of genres and arrangements, but the title track, a five-movement suite 8.5 minutes long, was alone worth the cost of the album. I thought it was impossible to improve on Bruce Botnick's neutral and detailed engineering on the original Elektra vinyl, but Chad Kassem's 45rpm, 200gm reissue, stamped on two discs by his own Quality Record Pressings, has more inner detail, deeper bass, more extended highs, wider dynamic range, and more delicacy. Over the last 20 years, many record companies have claimed, largely erroneously, that their "audiophile" vinyl reissues of classic jazz, rock, and classical music exceed the sound quality of the original LPs. Here, Chad Kassem has actually done it, and by a wide margin. Stereophile 2014 Records to Die for

About Soft ParadeRolling Stone described two songs written by guitarist Robby Krieger, “Touch Me” and “Follow Me Down” as horn-string showpieces for the resonant baritone of Jim Morrison.

Described as among the cleanest, most solid and, above all, most recognizable sounds in rock, the distinctive Doors’ sound was no doubt due to the Morrison power, but the other Doors were equally responsible. Ray Manzarek brought virtuosic keyboard tapestries, Krieger gritty, expressive fretwork, and Densmore dynamically rich percussion grooves. 

Half of the songs on Soft Parade, The Doors’ fourth LP, were written by Morrison and the other half by guitarist Krieger. “Touch Me” became one of The Doors’ most popular singles. Released as a single in December 1968, the song reached No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 and No. 1 in theCashbox Top 100 in early 1969. It was the band’s third American No. 1 single.

A truly authentic reissue project, the masters were recorded on tube equipment, and the tape machine used for the transfer of these releases is a tube machine, as is the cutting system. Tubes baby!

This is no time to wallow in the mire. The Doors are on Analogue Productions!
