The Doors: Live at the Bowl '68
Friday, 11/23 to Thursday, 11/29
“The Doors celebrated their independent streak with a concert at the Hollywood Bowl, which, like most things they did, has since passed into rock lore (and not just because Mick Jagger was in the crowd).” – Chris Roberts, BBC
The Doors supplied plenty of post-Independence Day fireworks on July 5, 1968 when the legendary quartet played the Hollywood Bowl, a concert that is considered to be the band’s finest on film. With a setlist comprising Doors classics including “Hello, I Love You,” “Light My Fire,” and “The End,” the film of the historic performance has been painstakingly restored in High Definition using the original camera negatives and the audio has been remixed and remastered in 5.1 Surround from original multi-tracks by the group’s engineer Bruce Bostnick. This 50th anniversary release will give fans the closest experience to being there live alongside Jim Morrison, John Densmore, Robby Krieger and Ray Manzarek, who added, “You can hear it as if you were at the Hollywood Bowl, on stage with us."
