The Doors: Original Soundtrack Recording is the soundtrack to Oliver Stone's 1991 film The Doors. It contains The Doors studio recordings, The Velvet Underground's "Heroin" as well as Carl Orff's Carmina Burana. None of Val Kilmer's performances of the Doors songs that are featured in the movie are included in the soundtrack.
The cover for the album is of Jim Morrison's character portrayed by Val Kilmer. It is a photo of Kilmer looking straight in the camera's lens. His face is in black and white and his hair has the color of burning flames, it is the same effect created on the movie's posters and advertising material.
The French release of the soundtrack features Jim Morrison walking in a hallway towards the viewer, he's also portrayed by Kilmer, and the photograph was also part of the advertising material especially in France.
