The Doors 1967 live album

by Modculture 11 November, 2008

A new live album of The Doors performing in San Francisco, just before the release of their breakthrough single ‘Light My Fire’, is being put out by Rhino.The_doors

Recorded at The Matrix venue over two nights in March 1967, the set had previously only been available as poor quality bootleg (featuring only a handful of the tracks that were actually played). The Doors perform much of what appears on their self-titled debut album, plus several tracks from second album Strange Days, plus covers of ‘Get Out Of My Life, Woman’, ‘I’m A King Bee’, and ‘Gloria’. Producer Bruce Botnick says the album “is probably the closest we’ve come to a true document of The Doors without constraints”.

Disc One:
1. “Break On Through (To The Other Side)”

    I think the cover is a missed opportunity.
