50th Anniversary Reissue of 1968 Single Featuring Mono Radio Mixes!
Issued in July 1968, The Doors' third studio effort, Waiting For The Sun, served as the band's third platinum album in less than two years time and first to top the album chart. "Hello, I Love You" became the band's second No. 1 hit when it topped the Billboard singles chart for two weeks beginning on August 3, 1968. Now, exactly 50 years later, Elektra is releasing a new 7" version of the single with its b-side "Love Street." For this anniversary release, the label will use mono radio mixes of the songs that were given exclusively to radio stations for airplay in 1968. This version of "Hello, I Love You" was first available as part of The Singles CD collection in 2017 and is making its vinyl debut here, while the "Love Street" mix is being released commercially for the first time.
