for the casual Doors observer it'll do it's job and be interesting, but it's gold for the die-hard Doors fan
21 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I knew that this video existed, but it seemed to vanish in the wake of videos and the call of DVDs. Luckily, it was included in the Doors collection DVD set among two other good specials (Dance on Fire, a best-of collection, and a live concert in 1968). It was my favorite of the three for several reasons, but not least of which that it tends to be less music-video-ized by director Ray Manzarek (not that there aren't some patched together pieces, like with "the Changeling" and "The Unknown Soldier", which is live here). Most of the video includes documentary footage- clips from a television special (their last in the USA I believe), and two priceless live performances, the first being of behind-the-scenes on 'Wild Child', and the other from the special called "Build me a Woman" (one of personal favorites). Even more indelible are two clips of interviews with the Doors, in particular Jim Morrison, who gives cool, intelligent words to say about the future of music, and on how his poetry fits in with the Doors. It all leads up to the title track of the video, which is one of the longer Doors songs (and very entrancing in some ways). So, for the avid Doors fan, or just fan of the music from the period (or rock in general I'd guess), this is a must-have. But it may turn on some too- it's a mix of blues, straight-up rock, pop, and poetic stances on life and the beyond.
