I guess it's been a LITTLE while since I slammed the Doors sledgehammer, so let's see what is up for part
9.... how about three double disc sets, which I don''t think I've seen around the web too much..... first up is a real curiosity, "Backstage and Dangerous, The Private Rehearsals" from 1969.....if you are down with this kind of thing, it's a treasury, if you find these things kind of boring, well...... lots of studio chatter, lots of half-assed efforts and corrections..... all in all, a fairly interesting curiosity. Really for Doors fanatics only, but I know there are one or two of you out there!
Next up come a pair of shows from The Aquarius Theater, 1969...... don't really recall seeing these around all that much either, so, again, calling all Doors fanatics...... the first two discs ("The First Performance") is certainly not unlistenable, they pull off an impromptu "Crossroads" and the crowd is seriously into it.
The "Second Performance" is ANOTHER two discs, features a somewhat similar setlist, again, really, for fanatics only....
Have we had enough Doors? I TOLD you you'd be tired of them once I wrap this one up.....anyway, I'm gonna do it, coz this is the kind of thing I do........ this is for Doors obsessives, should you not be one, PLEASE hit up Brian's Bowie covers project, it's one of the best posts ever on this blog, seriously.
