A Deluxe Edition of the Doors' fourth album, The Soft Paradewill include two CDs of bonus material to mark the record's 50th anniversary.

The set, which also features a vinyl copy of the 1969 LP, will be released on Oct. 18.

The first disc of the three-CD collection includes a remastered version of the album by Bruce Botnick along with "Who Scared You," the B-side to the "Wishful Sinful" single.

The second disc features three songs from rehearsals with keyboardist Ray Manzarek -- billed as "Screamin' Ray Daniels" -- on vocals and new bass parts by Robert DeLeo of Stone Temple Pilots, and five tracks with strings and horns removed. Guitarist Robby Krieger added new parts to three of the new mixes.

The last disc includes four studio outtakes, including an hour-long "Rock Is Dead" jam that makes its official debut in its entirety here. You can see the track listing below.

You can listen to the Manzarek-fronted early version of "Roadhouse Blues" below. The Deluxe Edition is now available as a pre-order on the Doors' website, including a version that comes with a hand-numbered lithograph of the record's original gatefold artwork that's limited to 500 copies.
