Editorial Reviews

The Doors Soundstage Performances are a truly unique compilation of three completely different Doors performances at three distinct stages in their career. The concept of the "Soundstage Performances" laid the way to assemble all three appearances. The majority of the material has never been seen before. Not only is it rare but it is startlingly great. Providing commentary are all three remaining Doors: Ray Manzarek, John Densmore and Robby Krieger. Even without an audience, the Doors mesmerize, playing for nothing but the cameras. Morrison still delivers electrifying performances, whether reciting poetry in Denmark proceeding "Love Me Two Times" or getting it on during "The Soft Parade" - Jim Morrison's charisma, beauty and brilliance shine during all.

Track Listing:
1. The End
2. Alabama Song
3. Back Door Man

Leave it to The Doors to release a new DVD with performances you can ALREADY get on the "Doors Collection" and "Live In Europe" DVDs but they make it tempting because there are a few "new" added songs and interviews with the band members and manager Danny Sugerman. This is still a pretty interesting document on how much of a great live band The Doors actually were. More influential than even the music is The Doors', and especially Jim Morrison's, stage presence. Morrison introduced theater into rock music, he brought the classic drama of the Greeks and writings of William Blake and Nietzsche to the rock stage. We need look no further than to their stunning performance of "The End" in this set to see that Morrison was the first rock performer to bring the elements of shamanistic ritual to the genre long before the likes of Godsmack's Sully Erna or Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder. Fans should especially get this new collection for "The End," it is a great, rare performance recorded for a television program before "Light My Fire" had even hit #1 and attained the band legendary status. Here we also find an example of how Morrison, clad in black leather, introduced darkness into the mainstream during the Summer Of Love (though the Velvet Underground is credited sometimes for bringing the darker corners of rock, it is The Doors who perfected it and made it influential and widespread). Here Morrison appears as the poet, he croons, screams and collapses. "When The Music's Over" is another moment of great effect, here the band comes alive with another of their long poetic invocations where Morrison chants "we want the world and we want it now.Read more ›

For any Doors fan, this is a must have DVD.

The sound quality is exceptional, especially when one acknowledges the fact these performances were recorded over thirty years ago.

This isn't flashy. The Doors are just playing some exceptional music. Certainly, someone raised on contemporary pop music would find this utterly boring. This DVD is not for people who need semi-clad dancers and strobe lights to make a music performance entertaining.

Jim Morrison is captivating in a very subdued way. It's quite fortunate these performances were recorded. The Doors, mostly because of Morrison's drug use and unpredictability, were quite hit and miss in regards to their live shows. These moments show Morrison at his best.

This is a gem amongst a lot of crap.

The unique thing about this DVD is that you get to see the band change before your eyes. The first song recorded at a Canadian TV show type setting shows 'The Doors' doing probably the most outstanding version of "The End" ever put to audio/video ever. Even though the Oedipal section is eliminated it is absolutely mind blowing (To Say The Least). Morrison is steaming. This performance capture the bands pre 'Light My Fire' fame remarkably well.

The second set of songs was recorded in Europe (Sweden I believe) and Morrison is seen in his prime bellowing out classics such as 'The Unknown Soldier', 'When The Musics Over' and more in sizzling hypnotic form. I was completely mesmerized by this part of the DVD (Morrison has some type of hypnotic quality to him in this video along with the sound of the band thumping behind him).

The third set is from the post Miami days. Morrison grew the beard, began dressing like a bum, and seemed a little more subdued (If not shaken up) as a result of the Miami fiasco. Still, you won't find a complete performance on video anywhere of 'The Soft Parade' and despite the mediocre video quality the performance is titllating. Its what the Doors were all about.

This DVD is worth getting for early 67 performance of The End in Toronto (even if the Oedipal section was not performed) and the complete Copenhagen TV broadcast. The PBS interview and performances are also complete - it is great to see and hear Tell All The People live along with Back Door Man (the rest of the PBS video renditions have appeared before). BUT what source material did they use to make the PBS segment of the DVD? The picture quality is really poor; there are drop-outs, white lines, and the color is washed out. This wouldn't be so frustrating but portions of the segment appear on the Doors Soft Parade laser disc and The Doors Collection DVD set in really fine quality without all the video noise. The recent interview segments with the surviving Doors (do they look OLD!) are interesting but the video is jumpy and the sound sometimes out-of-synch. Poor DVD rendering. In the end I still recommend it for anyone who has a passion for the Doors.

What Bootleg source did they use for this.

I could have found a better copy in the Villege in NYC?

If u look at some of the same material on The Doors Collection (Collectors Edition) it is clear and perfect Video. What a shame.

I contacted the Video Company Eaglerock and they told me they are aware of the problem did not care as long as the DVD sold lots of copies.The DVD is worth purchase just for The END and the Danish TV Concert.
