We’ve got an exclusive premiere of a live version of “Twentieth Century Fox” from the upcoming 50th-anniversary edition of the Doors‘ celebrated self-titled debut album. This sparkling update, taken from recently rediscovered original master tapes, was recorded on March 7th, 1967, at the Matrix in San Francisco. Only third-generation versions of this show were previously available.

“Twentieth Century Fox” is one of eight live tracks that appear on the forthcoming three-disc The Doors: 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition. Due on March 31st, the set includes remastered stereo and mono mixes of the original album, along with a third disc of songs from the Doors’ performance at the Matrix. Also included is an LP version of the original album with a newly remastered mono mix.

This new box follows the limited-edition archival London Fog 1966 set, which was released late last year. Surviving Doors members John Densmore and Robby Krieger have promised that more anniversary-related items are on the way.

“London Fog is the first limited-edition release, but it’s jump-starting the whole thing,” Densmore . “There will be more stuff, including a couple of films – including one you haven’t seen before. I’m very excited about that.”

The Doors rose to No. 2 after its January. 4th, 1967, release, and produced the No. 1 smash “Light My Fire” on the way to four-times platinum sales. “Break on Through (To the Other Side),” this album’s lead single, somehow failed to break into the Top 100, but later became a signature song for the group.
