The Complete Studio Recordings is a seven compact disc box set by American rock group The Doors, released by Elektra on November 9, 1999. It contains six of the original nine Doors albums, digitally remastered with 24 bit, with the inclusion of stray previously unreleased tracks that had surfaced on the The Doors: Box Set series, on disc seven.

The albums are placed in chronological order.

Misleading title[edit]

While the title of the box set suggests this is a collection of all the studio recordings by the band, there are some notable exceptions. The set does not include the three post-Morrison albums Other Voices, Full Circle and An American Prayer, nor their respective singles. The non-album B-sides to "Get Up and Dance", the rare Tree Trunk, and to "Love Her Madly", "(You Need Meat) Don't Go No Further", a Willie Dixon song sung by Manzarek, are also missing.

Track listing[edit]

All songs were written by Jim Morrison, Robby Krieger, Ray Manzarek, and John Densmore except where noted.
