The story of the famous and influential 1960s rock band The Doors and its lead singer and composer, Jim Morrison, from his days as a UCLA film student in Los Angeles, to his untimely death in Paris, France at age 27 in 1971.
My favorite Doors compilation, the footage timeless and sweet
The Doors are one of my favorite rock groups ever assembled, and the combined efforts of Ray Manzarek, John Densmore, Robby Kreiger, and James Douglas Morrison will always have a lasting effect on future fans of rock and roll. This compilation- Dance on Fire- includes their best stuff, and while there may have been one or two songs I wanted on it (i.e. "Five to One" or "The Ghost Song") it is essential for fans to have this. Their one and only appearance on the Ed Sullivan show, playing "Light My Fire", the original promo clip for "Unknown Soldier", a live performance of "The End", and songs like "Break on Through" and "L.A. Woman" are immediate reasons to get this, even if you're just a casual listener of The Doors. Even the small moments of Jim's poetry thrown in between some of the songs is of great interest. A+
