The Doors are digging up rare footage to share with fans this December. The new Blu-ray and DVD R-Evolution features early TV appearances, music films, and commentary from bandmates John Densmore, Robby Krieger and the late Ray Manzarek. The collection tracks the Doors' rise through the restrictions of mid-Sixties TV to establishing their creative control.

Why John Densmore Reconciled With the Doors

Most notably, R-Evolution sports previously unreleased and rare footage of the Doors. Beloved cuts like "Break on Through (To the Other Side)," "Light My Fire," "People Are Strange," "L.A. Woman" and more appear in the collection, as well as special features like a never-before-seen 1966 Ford training film with music from the Doors and outtakes from the group's 1967 appearance on Malibu U.

R-Evolution will be out December 3rd and will also be available in a deluxe edition, featuring a 40-page book with lyrics, photos, trivia and more.

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
