    The Soft Parade

    Mastered by Doug Sax and overseen by Bruce Botnick, The Doors producer/engineer.

    Two 45 rpm LPs pressed on 200-gram vinyl at Quality Record Pressings



    Part of The Doors reissue series proudly presented by Analogue Productions and Quality Record Pressings!


    Analogue Productions presents all six of the Doors studio titles on 200g 45RPM 2LP pressed at Quality Record Pressings as well as The Doors, Strange Days, Waiting For The Sun and L.A. Woman on Hybrid multi-channel SACD, all cut from the original analog masters by Doug Stax, with the exception being The Doors which was made from the best tape copy available.


    Sax and the Doors producer/engineer Bruce Botnick have gone through a meticulous setup to guarantee a positively stunning reissue series. These masters were recorded on all-tube equipment, and the tape machine used for the transfer of these releases is also a tube machine, as is the cutting system.


    The Doors mined new territory with their 1969 release, The Soft Parade incorporating brass, strings and even a full orchestra into the mix, albeit with the same results as it became their fourth Top 10 album in a row. The album climbed all the way to #6 on the strength of the huge hit Touch Me. Here on 200g 45RPM 2LP.

    Dream A Little Dream

    At the time of Dream a Little Dream's release, the von Trapp family was more newsworthy than it had been in a while: The Sound of Music Live!, a television adaptation of Rodgers & Hammerstein's musical, was a ratings success when it aired in December 2013. More poignantly, Maria von Trapp, the last surviving member of the original Trapp Family Singers, passed in February 2014 at age 99.


    On this collaboration with Pink Martini, Sofie, Melanie, Amanda, and August von Trapp -- the great-grandchildren of the von Trapps immortalized in The Sound of Music -- continue the family tradition with beautifully harmonized versions of songs ranging from Johannes Brahms' In Stiller Nacht to the national anthem of Rwanda, Rwanda Nziza. Working with Pink Martini was an inspired choice, as they almost always bring out the best in their collaborators -- along with the unexpected, like Kuroneko No Tango, a version of the Italian song Black Cat Tango inspired by Japanese singer Osamu Minagawa's 1969 rendition. The group sounds just as natural backing the von Trapps as they do working with their usual vocalists, and Dream a Little Dream bears the same mix of kitsch and sublime beauty as one of Pink Martini's own albums. Die Dorfmusik sounds like it could have strolled in from The Lawrence Welk Show, while the version of ABBA's Fernando sounds like it came from a Swedish Carnaval parade thanks to the involvement of the Lions of Batucada.


    The inevitable Sound of Music inclusions are handled in a similarly playful fashion, with Wayne Newton taking the lead on The Lonely Goatherd and Charmian Carr (who portrayed Liesl in the film of the musical) joining the von Trapps for a sweet version of Edelweiss that recalls Pink Martini's work with Phyllis Diller on their previous album, Get Happy. The von Trapps balance Dream a Little Dream's quaint and quirky moments with more contemporary-sounding tracks, three of which were penned by August. Storm and Friend recall '60s folk in their acoustic earnestness, and the Chieftains give the closing track, Thunder, a pretty, if somewhat out of place, Celtic twist. As is often the case with Pink Martini's albums, the most intimate moments here are among the best.


    A softer-than-soft rendition of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang's Hushabye Mountain captures the exquisite poignancy of vintage children's music, while the delicate Le Premier Bonheur du Jour and a starlit version of the album's title track cast a similar spell. Ultimately, Dream a Little Dream is an entertaining blend of both parties' strengths, showcasing Pink Martini's globetrotting pop and introducing the next generation of von Trapp music.
