THE DOORS: Live in New York!



The Doors Live

This 6-CD collection contains all of the Doors' performances from the Felt Forum in 1970. All four shows were mixed and mastered by the band's long-time engineer, Bruce Botnick. Most of the music in the collection has never been released before.

Recorded January 17th and 18th, 1970 – just a few weeks before the release of Morrison Hotel – these concerts find Jim Morrison, John Densmore, Robby Krieger and Ray Manzarek locked in tight as they deliver smoking takes on soon-to-be-classics from their forthcoming album, including ‘Roadhouse Blues,’ ‘Peace Frog,’ ‘Ship Of Fools,’ and ‘Maggie M’Gill.’ The shows also feature a few driving blues covers, such as Bo Diddley’s ‘Who Do You Love,’ Howlin’ Wolf’s ‘Back Door Man,’ and John Lee Hooker’s ‘Crawling King Snake.’

For the final show of the Felt Forum stand, the band was joined onstage by two guests – The Lovin’ Spoonful’s John Sebastian and drummer Dallas Taylor. Sebastian sat in for ‘Rock Me’ and was joined by Taylor for ‘Going To N.Y. Blues’ and ‘Maggie M’Gill.’
