Performers The Doors

Not yet rated | write a review
With such a plethora of live releases issued over the years (and quite a few with less than satisfactory sound quality), whenever a vintage Doors performance gets the CD treatment, it's understandable for fans to be skeptical. But 2002's Live in Hollywood is one that gets it right. Although not a complete performance from beginning to end, Live in Hollywood plucks highlights from several performances at the Aquarius Theatre in 1969. According to legend, depending on which night you witnessed a performance by Jim Morrison, you either got the Lizard King in all his glory, or a clearly out-of-it gentleman in danger of inciting a riot or getting arrested. These performances were certainly when Morrison and his bandmates were "on," as the group sounds simply fantastic -- offering more than enough evidence as to why the Doors are often considered one of the most mesmerizing live acts of the '60s. Most of the group's favorites up to 1969 are featured here, including fine readings of such classics as "Break on Through," "Touch Me," "Five to One," and "Light My Fire," as well as an embryonic instrumental version of "Peace Frog." Your chance to witness the real Doors on-stage has expired long ago, but Live in Hollywood does quite nicely. ~ Greg Prato
