The Doors, Discography, Short Catalog – Long Reach – ‘The Doors’ Debut Album [VIDEOS]
Right off the bat The Doors had the magic with their debut album, 'The Doors', it was an immediate success, shot up to #2 in the U.S. and the sales speak for themselves at 12 million copies worldwide.
With the extensive airplay of "Light My Fire" and throw in the closing track of their controversial song, "The End" the two songs contributed to much of the album's success ("The End" had to be edited heavily due to Jim's repeated drop of the F-bomb).
Soon the song, "Break on Through ( To The Other Side)" would be released and again it had to be edited due the "High" reference in the song so it was removed, record execs feared it wouldn't get airplay, needless to say; it only made it to #126 on the singles charts so it was all for not.
