20 Songs, 1 Hour 10 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

This is the legendary July 5, 1968, Hollywood Bowl concert in its entirety. Thanks to state-of-the-art technology, original engineer Bruce Botnick was able to repair the damaged portions of the live tapes and, for the first time, bring out the complete show. The band opens here with a sharp and focused version of the epic "When the Music's Over." (Imagine a modern chart-topping band opening a show with 13 minutes of music and poetry!) An early poetry-only version of "The WASP (Texas Radio and the Big Beat)" leads the way into succinct run-throughs of "Hello, I Love You" and "Moonlight Drive" before The Doors do the unexpected improvisatory number "Horse Latitudes" and pieces of the then-unreleased "Celebration of the Lizard" (listed as "A Little Game"), "The Hill Dwellers," and "Wake Up!" An extended version of "The End" brings this unusual concert to its close.

Simply Superb! The Doors rock the bowl...

In the summer of 1968, a legendary band hit the stage at the Hollywood Bowl and rock history was made.

RIP Ray Manzarek - great album

I've always loved the Doors and this performance in general is really one of their best because you can hear Ray absolutely kill it on his solos time and time again. He was a genius. As were Jim and Robby and John. Ray shall be missed.

Amazing Album

Great live album and is a must listen. The doors were one of the best bands of all time. Each band member possesses a skill the Beatles could only dream of achieving.
