Top Customer Reviews
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 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.
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.

I got this DVD for the PBS show done after the Miami concert. For me that was worth the price alone. I would say this is for more of the "serious" Doors fan. Read morePublished 5 months ago by J. Evans
