16 Songs, 3 Hours 6 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

In 1979, in conjunction with the release of An American Prayer and the upcoming Jim Morrison biography No One Here Gets Out Alive, L.A. disc jockey Jim Ladd hosted a four-part program featuring an in-depth look at the legendary Los Angeles rock 'n' roll band The Doors. The radio program was syndicated and sent to stations across the country as "Innerview" and played over the course of four weeks. The original vinyl sets became a collector's item; bootlegs surfaced, but their fidelity was low. In 2001, the remaining band members decided to issue the special for hardcore fans. Sans commercials, the programs run a bit longer than 45 minutes each (and here are split into four mini-parts per segment for easier access). The band's myth and reality are explored, often with a mix of the two. Interviews with the surviving members expand our insight and compound the legend, but all highlights of the group's history are discussed at length. The source is a copy of the vinyl box, so there may be some surface noise.

Great for True Doors Fans

Although this "Inner-View" takes place about eight years after the death of Jim Morrison, it is still a very interesting and enlightening look into the life of The Doors. Set against the backdrop of The Doors' music (not just the "greatest hits" but also songs like L'America and My Eyes Have Seen You), you hear from remaining Doors members Kreiger, Desmore, and Manzerek, as well as friends and business associates of the band. They talk at length about Jim, his lyrics, and the experiences that made The Doors such a unique and innovative band. I'm a huge fan of The Doors and I'd recommend this to anyone who wants to hear more about the band from the surviving members themselves.
