Editorial Reviews

The early and late show from April 10, 1970 of the Doors' final tour with Jim Morrison is presented here in three discs. An epic and incendiary booze-filled musical journey through the Doors' biggest hits, greatest tracks, inspired covers, and assorted spoken word gems, almost all previously unreleased, is the highlight for any superfan. The three discs capture their 1970 tours' legendary first stop at the Boston Arena on April 10, 1970 with complete recordings of both the early & late shows; CD 1 presents the early show including 'Roadhouse Blues' and mind-bending renditions of 'Alabama Song [Whisky Bar]', 'When The Music's Over', 'Light My Fire' and more plus CD's 2 + 3 which unleashes the sprawling second show featuring the highlights 'Break On Through', 'Back Door Man' and Morrison's spoken word riff through 'Adolf Hitler', presented in a fold-out digipak. Rhino. 2007.

I'm writing this review so those who are skeptical or hesitant about purchasing this release might better appreciate what to do instead of regretting it later. The shows recorded at Boston were part of a number of shows professionally recorded by the band for a future live release. Jim was an alcoholic and he did get drunk at SOME of the Doors live performances. If you don't want to hear what a drunk Jim Morrison sounds like, then definitely purchase Live at Detroit and you will get a much better performance from Morrison and the band in general. However, if you dare cross the line and dwell in the "loose palace of exile" you might find yourself surprisingly entertained by the Doors live at Boston. First off, the mix of this recording definitely fits the setting. The Doors played in an arena and what you get is "arena sound." It makes for great listening if you turn it WAY UP!!! John Densmore's drums are mixed front and center and it sounds great! As for the shows:

The howl and moan by Jim at the start of the first set is quite a pleasure to listen to and it sets the stage for a ballsy Road House Blues which follows immediately after. Ship of Fools is well performed by the band and Jim is able to sing most of the lyrics, albeit in inebriated form. I won't review each and every song but sufficit to say, as long as you don't mind the grunts and slurs and yells by Jimbo, and you crank this recording LOUD, you will have a FUN TIME! No one in the audience could have cared less if Jimbo was drunk as a skunk! The Doors bravely carry on, juiced Jimbo and all. In the second set, Jim is even drunker BUT he's capable of reciting poetry, (graveyard poem) and it's a beautiful one at that!

Live In Boston is easily the weakest live Doors album yet. Jim is drunk and his performance seriously suffers. I was able to tolerate (and even enjoy) most of it, but I would not be surprised if someone shut this off after a few songs. Sadly, Jim only gets worse as the show goes on. A lack of pro-recorded shows and the ability to market this as "Jim Morrison at his wildest!" are the only reasons why this show is being released.

If you have all the previous live Doors releases and don't mind hearing a very rough performance, go ahead and check this one out. I've enjoyed listening to it, but I'm sure it wont become a favorite. There is much better live Doors material out there.

If you don't own any Doors live albums yet, start with Live in Philadelphia or Live in Detroit. Both of those shows are vastly superior to Live in Boston.

This is not a greatest hits package. This is not a studio album. This is a cd of two unedited performances....and it is brilliant. Morrison drunk without a net and wavering between goddamn genius and drunk stupidity. These performances do a great job of showcasing Morrison's sense of humor and his abilities as a frontman. This is not Jim Morrison-the Lizard King, it is Morrison-the Changeling and the crowd is with him the whole time. The first show even has its moments despite the fact that Morrison doesn't even bother to sing the lyrics to Five to One, instead using his rap from their cover of Gloria. The second show is awesome and when listened to as a singular concert experience it is even more powerful. I like the Detroit Show, but it 's too safe, this album represents all the different facets of Morrison's personality and his soul: the charming poet, shy schoolboy, redneck, exhibitionist, lovable rogue, class clown and drunk. I find it funny that people love Morrison for his words and his insight, but they can't deal with the reality of what shaped his vision and altered his perception. It's kinda like saying..."William S. Burroughs is a great writer and I love his books, but I saw him at a reading and he was strung out on heroin." DUH...

I've been a fan since 1967. I grew up in Los Angeles during the '60s, and always loved their music. A couple of years ago, The Robbie Krieger Band performed in Orangevale,CA. 3 blocks from my home. They played all the old Doors tunes. Robbie's guitar playing was awesome.
I'm about halve way through CD2, and hear no problem with vocals or music. Now if he's sloshed on the remaining tracks, WHO CARES.
Its Jim Morrison boozed up or sober. Get a life, it isn't 1971, its almost 2008, the real deal with Jim alive on stage, with the all the members. I have Live in Detroit, and other live performances. Yes, the vocals are more clearer. I enjoyed, Live in Boston so far. These reviews are way too critical

"Live in Boston 1970" is the rough-edged "warts and all" Doors release we've all been waiting for. Jim Morrison feels no pain during these unpredictable Boston Arena concerts - propelled by the brilliant playing of Robby Krieger, Ray Manzarek and John Densmore. The results are occasionally sloppy, yet often compelling musically. Jimbo really lets loose with his stream-of-consciousness rapping and engaging blues covers. When considering his inebriated state, it's amazing that Morrison performed two shows in a single night. Historic document, indeed.
