The Doors Live In Phili '70 concert CD to be released

http://www.thedoors.com/news/

BETTER THAN A CHEESESTEAK
The Doors Music Company and Bright Midnight Archives are thrilled to announce The Doors Live In Philadelphia '70 the legendary Philadelphia show in its entirety. Jim Morrison's incantatory power and the musical telepathy of Manzarek, Krieger and Densmore blew the Philly crowd away that night, and thanks to this stellar recording, now you too can experience the majesty of a truly historic live Doors performance.

This pristine recording will be available as a two-CD set from BMA November 29, capturing The Doors at their incendiary peak in front of 14,000 screaming fans, and boasts killer versions of "Break On Through," "Back Door Man," "When the Music's Over," "Light My Fire" and "Roadhouse Blues," among others. Digitally transferred from the original multi-track recordings, then mixed and mastered by longtime sonic collaborator and original Doors engineer/co-producer Bruce Botnick, another classic is unveiled.

A concert from the Doors' final tour will see the light of day Nov. 29 via the boutique Rhino Handmade label. Captured May 1, 1970, at the Spectrum, the two-disc set "The Doors: Live in Philadelphia" features covers of Howlin' Wolf's "Back Door Man" and Elvis Presley's "Mystery Train."

Like many a Doors show, this one nearly didn't go off, with fire marshals clearing the aisles and threatening to pull the plug (a stage announcer can be heard ordering the audience to sit down). And despite the existence of a good recording (three tracks from which have previously been released) the band wasn't necessarily aware of the quality of the show in the moment.

"We didn't have monitors and the mains were pointed away from us," guitarist Robbie Krieger recalls in the set's liner notes. "I couldn't hear a damn thing. I felt like I was on acid. But I felt we played pretty well."

Did some portion of this concert make it onto a compilation of sorts? I think perhaps....Doors ABSOLUTELY LIVE? I definitely remember hearing some sort of interaction between an announcer and the crowd in regards to clearing the aisles....
