Waiting For The Sun, released July 3rd, 1968 through Elektra Records, is the third studio album from psychedelic rock band The Doors. The Unknown Soldier and Hello, I Love You were the two singles released for the album. The recording of the album was notable as it was the first album marred by Jim Morrison’s growing alcoholism. Despite this, it was a massive commercial success and it was their first album to reach number one on the Billboard 200. Hello, I Love You was also their first single to reach number one. Waiting For The Sun Q&A.
The 1968 long-player features the band’s second US number one, Hello, I Love You (its B-side Love Street is the second track on Waiting For The Sun) and it reached the summit on the American album charts too, the only Doors album to achieve this feat. This 50th anniversary reissue is a three-disc set – two CDs and a vinyl record – and features a newly remastered version of the stereo mix of the album (by Bruce Botnick) on both CD and the vinyl
Waiting for the Sun is the third studio album by the American rock band the Doors. Recorded at TTG Studios in Los Angeles, the album's 11 tracks were recorded between February and May 1968 and the album was released by Elektra Records on July 3, 1968. It became the band's only album (topping the charts for four weeks) and included their second US single, "Hello, I Love You" (for two weeks starting August 3, 1968)
Waiting for the Sun was originally released in August, 1968. It was the band’s third platinum album in less than two years, and the first to top the album chart. The program was originally produced for their 1968 . Designed by Paul Ferrara, this 24-page program includes many color and black & white images taken by Ferrara, plus poetry by Jim Morrison, astrology charts for each band member, and more. 68 Bruce Botnick, 50th Anniversary, new releases, Rhino, Waiting For the Sun.

The Doors' 1967 albums had raised expectations so high that their third effort was greeted as a major disappointment. With a few exceptions, the material was much mellower, and while this yielded some fine melodic ballad rock in "Love Street," "Wintertime Love," "Summer's Almost Gone," and "Yes, the River Knows," there was no denying that the songwriting was not as impressive as it had been on the first two records.
So then, "Waiting For The Sun" catapulted us without mercy into the chaotic hell that was 1968.
