    I think it sounds great except for the issues with WTMO...anybody know if the RSD mono has the same drops in quality at the same spots?

    This is disappointing to hear about WTMO. Other than that song, most others I'd be interested in hearing in mono are on the Singles set that just came out. (I realize they might be different mono mixes than the Singles set, but I'm not too worried about that)

    Not even owning the mono mix can tempt you?

    Not really. Don't care about Mono.

    Same here. I have never understood the attraction to mono...especially albums.

    I suspect the single stereo disc will be available soon if not already for about $5 or $6. I know i saw the first album 50th anniversary version for $5.99 at Best Buy awhile back.

    Well the mono here is a dedicated mix...and since it was 67, probably the one “finished” first.

    It's the box set with the 40th Anniversary remixes in cardboard sleeves. No bonus tracks.

    It's on Amazon for $30ish. Inexpensive way to get all 6 40th remixes

    Owning the DCC Gold. The Doors of Perception DVD-A box, and the RSD Mono (and just for good measure the Paul Rothchild mastered CD)... I really can't imagine I'd ever need to buy this title again. Save for maybe a great deal on a 1st press LP.

    I was pleased with the sound of the mono Japanese SHM-CD for the self-titled. Will definitely be picking up the same for Strange Days. Love me some Doors in mono.

    The chewed up spots in When the Music's Over mono are pretty disappointing. Also, is anyone else hearing clicks and a volume drop right at the loudest click in the beginning of You're Lost Little Girl?

    got all the mono of the beatles and most (if not all ;) ) of them are much more better and different from the stereo. Also got "their satanic majesties request" in mono , far better than the stereo, more punchy even if there is not much mixing difference. Bought the mono 1st doors in downloading… and , well, i prefer the stereo. Strange days is one of my favorite album, but is it worth in this CD edition in mono ?

    I can't say I prefer the mono version here, but definitely Beatles stuff is a must have. Also, the Perception box with the 40th mixes has all the bonus tracks.

    To me these 50th mixes of the originals are nearly perfect. I don't see how any real Doors fan could be disappointed. The packaging has been stellar on both releases, especially the 3 disc Japanese S/T.

    The liner notes does mention that there is some issues that they could not correct with the Mono When The Music's Over.

    Ah! That’s the problem with buying the hdtracks version I guess, no liner notes. Thanks

    Got my 2CD package. Actually pretty well done, I like that now we have booklet, some notes from Bruce and original tapes photo inside. Going to compare mono remaster on CD to the RSD mono vinyl tomorrow. All in all sounds good with the exception of some problems on When the Music's Over.
