Album artwork for Weird Scenes Inside the Gold Mine by The Doors

With an intoxicating, genre-blending sound, provocative and uncompromising songs, and the mesmerising power of singer Jim Morrison's poetry and presence, The Doors had a transformative impact not only on popular music but on popular culture. In the decades since the Doors' heyday, the foursome has loomed ever larger in the pantheon of rock - and they remain a touchstone of insurrectionary culture for writers, activists, visual artists and other creative communities.

Weird Scenes was originally released in 1972 and is long out-of-print. It was the first compilation to be released after Jim Morrison's death in 1971, and features some of the Doors' best-loved hits alongside two stellar B-sides: "Who Scared You" which appeared in March 1969 as the flip-side to "Wishful Sinful", and a cover of Willie Dixon's "(You Need Meat) Don't Go No Further" which was paired with the smash "Love Her Madly" in 1971. The 22 songs that appear on the collection provide a wide-ranging introduction to the music recorded between 1967 and 1971.
