Combining early TV appearances with their own music films, it illustrates how The Doors evolved from the constraints of late sixties television to a point where they had the creative input and power to shape how they were portrayed on screen. Throughout the unique charisma and talent of The Doors comes across, whether it be on a lightweight pop show or on a film created from their own imaginations, along with some of the most influential music ever made.

MISSING (in no particular order):
1) People are Strange - The Ed Sullivan Show
Why is this missing? I interned at a stock film archive for a period of time, and they have this footage available ready to be licensed. So it is available, why is it not included? Too costly?
2) Light My Fire - The Ed Sullivan Show
Same issue as the above, and possibly the most important television performance they ever gave. I've seen this on DVD releases, but it has yet to make it to blu-ray, and here was the perfect opportunity.
3) Light My Fire - Jonathan Winters Show
This collection includes the most seen performance from this broadcast, Moonlight Drive, but is missing the Light My Fire performance. It IS available on the "Live at the Bowl" blu-ray, but it really belongs on this disc with the other TV performances. I'm sure excluding this title was because they didn't want to pay to license it again for another release, but they should have had the foresight when they did the "Live at the Bowl" release.
4) Light My Fire - Murray the K Show
Its exists, we've seen it. Why is it not here? It's one of the more bizarre television performances of the Doors, in fact, its more like a music video. Outtakes also exist for this and their People are Strange performance, which could have been a nice bonus feature. The stock archive I mentioned earlier also had all of this footage available for licensing.
4) Wild Child - The Smothers Brothers Show
This collection includes the incredibly common Touch Me performance, but is missing the Wild Child one. This IS on the "Live at the Bowl" blu-ray, but as said above, it should have really been included here.
5) The End - O'Keefe Centre
This was later released on the "Feast of Friends" blu-ray, but why was it not released on this collection?
6) PBS Performance
Available on VHS and DVD, but yet to make it on blu-ray. Would have been perfect for this release. Its a long show, but it should have been here
7) Post-Morrison performances
Many fans might not be too interested, but its still a part (although minor) of the legacy of the Doors.
Now its quite possible that these can be released on another compilation release, but whats the point if they're not all in chronicle order? I certainly believe that all of these could have fit onto a single disc. I highly doubt it will ever happen with all the licensing involved.
For die-hard fans only.
complaint is that they use 'Touch Me' from The Smothers bros. We have all seen this a million times before! The
should have included 'Wild Child' from the same program. BAD oversight. Light My Fire from the Jonathan Winters show is missing too. If this two film were included, I would have given 6 stars. Maybe they are preparing a R-Evolution part 2?
