The Doors released their third studio album, Waiting For the Sun, in July 1968. It was the band's third platinum album in less than two years, and the first to top the album chart. Since its debut, the album has sold millions of copies around the globe and contributed to the Doors' legendary canon with classics like The Unknown Soldier, Five to One and the #1 smash, Hello, I Love You.
Hello, I Love You became the band's second #1 hit when it topped the Billboard singles chart for two weeks beginning on 3rd August 1968. Now, exactly 50 years later, The Doors will release a new 7" version of the single with its B-side Love Street. For this anniversary release, the band will use mono radio mixes of the songs that were given exclusively to radio stations for airplay in 1968. This version of Hello, I Love You was first available last year as part of The Singles CD collection and is making its vinyl debut here, while the Love Street mix is being released commercially for the first time.
