Footage from Robby Krieger, John Densmore and the late Ray Manzarek’s personal archives has been mined for a new The Doors DVD and Blu-Ray release, which will also feature the band’s rare early TV appearances.

“R-Evolution,” which will be released in December, chronicles the rock act’s speedy rise from an unknown Los Angeles band to legendary status.

It features a treasure trove of previously unreleased footage including performances of hits like “Light My Fire,” “People Are Strange” and “Hello, I Love You,” a never-before-seen 1966 Ford training film with music by The Doors and a section of outtakes from the band’s appearance on U.S. TV show Malibu U in 1967.

A Deluxe Edition of the DVD and Blu-Ray features a 40-page hardback book with a “scrapbook” style presentation on each track, including lyrics, background information, trivia and photographs.

The restored and remixed package also features commentary from Densmore, Krieger and Manzarek, who died earlier this year.
