Jim Morrison had taken LSD prior to going on stage . The effects become noticable during the set . John densmore commented that " I felt something was a bit off , jim would come in early or late in different sections of the song " See more »
You would think that a guy has famous as Jim Morrison was in the history of the rock 'n roll would be a little more dynamic.
When I saw this on VHS way back when I was expecting something exciting. I grew up with all these bands (and a lot earlier rock in the '50s). I knew the songs and I had heard about Morrison making obscene gestures, etc., in concerts. I didn't expect, or want, that but I wanted SOME visuals worth watching, otherwise why not just stick with the CDs?
Morrison might have well have been in a coma for all the animation he exhibited. What you get on this tape (or DVD) is seeing a singer grabbing on the to microphone with two hands and singing into it - nothing else. I saw more life in zombie movies.
Hey, I usually liked music of The Doors. Their songs and lyrics were dramatic and bold and exciting....everything this concert is not.
