The Doors Five Disc Box Set Shelved

Ultimate Classic Rock has bad news for fans of The Doors: The 'L.A. Woman' five-disc Super Edition is no longer on tap for release.

Bumped from its initial release date of Nov. 24, 2011 and despite the hundreds of pre-paid advance orders, Rhino Records has decided that it's not a commercially viable project.

Doors' Manager Jeff Jampol explains that "there are concerns at [Rhino's] end" and "they want to be sure that not only is the market there, but do we have a place to distribute them?" The two-disc 'L.A. Woman' 40th Anniversary special edition remains on schedule with a Jan. 24 date, but now it appears that a three-disc set (previously unreleased alternates/outtakes/chatter) will later accompany it. more on this story
