Maybe my favorite of their songs,  Krieger's lead guitar work is sublime if too short.  Gave it a "9"

Yes!  Great comment, even if 10 years old.  Jim clearly was in love with Pam, and she must have given a great bj cuz he certainly sounds relexed here.  I think they even incorporated this scene in the Oliver Stone film. 

RIP Jim!

RIP Ray!

Long Live RP!!



 
RIP Pam too.

I just like knowing why Jim sounded so relaxed when this was recorded....what can a girl do to relax a guy? The little girl wasn't lost at all, unless she didn't know where Jim's lap was. It's great to hear some Doors on here once in awhile. Thanks RP!

I'm beginning to feel obsolete.  Many thanks for these comments.

BTW: This Doors track is one of my favorite slow burners from the band .  Easily one of the most haunting of Morrison's lyrics.  For themes of alienation and loneliness brought to life in living color, not many albums can match Strange Days.  "Let's swim to the moon... let's climb through the tide... penetrate the evening that the city sleeps to hide."  Timeless.

The Doors are still unmatched for sheer exuberance and creative panache-That cover is a representation of Jim Morrison's fascination with freaks and the world of carnival. Good follow up with Chris Isaak.

The Doors don't sound nearly as good live in my experience, but I have to wonder if that's because Morrison was high so often.  
 

Had the pleasure of seeing the Doors in Philly at the old Arena (where the Roller Derby track was), second show.  It was the tour after the infamous Miami incident.  The show was delayed in order to get still police chief Rizzo's cameras out of the hall.  Rizzo wanted to have cameras rolling in case there was a reprise of Morrison alledgedly exposing himself again.  They got the cameras out and the show started shortly after.  The cameras did come back shortly after the show started, but all they got was a really great show.

The sound was very good actually, at least for back then.  Halfway through the second set, Morrison jumped off the stage and roamed through the audience still singing as he did occasionally.  It was a more than worthy show.  They were in great form.  I did remeber Manzarek looking at Morrison alot wondering WTF was he going to do next.  The Doors may have had a set list, but in reality, they had to follow Morrison's lead and make adjustments on the fly to compensate.  The skills and musicianship of the band were way beyond their time. When they played live they never knew where it was going, they literally played by the seat of their pants, improvisationally.

So, you've never experienced the joy of a live performance? Would you rather just listen to the boom boom of fireworks on your Ipod earbuds rather than experience the visual spectacle? Give me live any day! Just sayin'.

The Doors - "10 Minute Interview" (1969)

"Jim Morrison and Ray Manzerek do most of the talking in this 10 minute cut of an interview with band taken in 1969. Jim wears shades throughout the interview and seems knocked out or up on something. They talk eloquently and with very considered response to the interviewer about their thoughts over many various topics. They talk about their thoughts on comparisons that have been suggested between their music and rock concerts becoming religious or spiritual experiences for the Youth of America at the time.
Note, the interesting response of Jim Morrison suggesting that he can see a time where concerts will be given by one man with a lot of machines."
