Live In Philadelphia ’70

The waiting is the hardest part: These two CDs of the Doors in full on May 1st, 1970, open with six minutes of crowd-control announcements and tuning. But with the jump into the grunting-boogie guitar of "Roadhouse Blues," the Doors are immediately in their late glory, showing off the garage soul on the recent Morrison Hotel. Jim Morrison sings like he's drunk on the fire behind him instead of cheap hooch, and the closing shots of Chuck Berry's "Carol" and "Soul Kitchen" are mighty lightning.
