Out now is The Doors' Live At The Bowl '68. The collection, which marks the first time the Doors' complete July 5th, 1968 show has been released in its entirety, is available in a number of formats, including CD, DVD, Blu-ray disc, and a double album.
Unlike nearly every other artist that releases a live collection and tells you it sounds just like it did onstage, co-founder Ray Manzarek told us that as great as the DVD sounds -- it was far better sounding where he was sitting that night: "(Laughs) Are you kidding?!? It doesn't sound like it sounds onstage! I'm sitting in front of huge amplifiers, y'know? There's nothing in the world that sounds like being onstage. That is reserved only for us divinely blessed musicians, who get to work with our buddies and enter some sort of Zen state of madness, Dionysian state of chaos, of oneness, and just pounding, throbbing music. That's what we, the musicians, get."
The tracklisting to the Doors' Live At The Bowl '68 is: Show Start/Intro, "When The Music's Over," "Alabama Song (Whisky Bar)," "Back Door Man," "Five To One," "Back Door Man (Reprise)," "The WASP (Texas Radio And The Big Beat)," "Hello, I Love You," "Moonlight Drive," "Horse Latitudes," "A Little Game," "The Hill Dwellers," "Spanish Caravan,' "Hey, What Would You Guys Like To Hear?," "Wake Up!," "Light My Fire (Segue)," "Light My Fire," "The Unknown Soldier," "The End (Segue)."
