THE DOORS “Live At The Bowl ’68” – Releases On DVD & Blu-ray October 22nd Via Eagle Rock Entertainment

Digitally restored video & audio, with two previously unreleased tracks!  In stores October 22!

On July 5th, 1968, The Doors took to the stage of the Hollywood Bowl for a concert that has since passed into legend. The Doors were performing on the back of their 3rd album release “Waiting For The Sun” and the US No.1 single “Hello, I Love You”. They had been honing their live performances over the previous 2 years and were on absolute peak form.

Now for the first time the original film footage from the Hollywood Bowl has been digitally scanned and restored to present the show better and more complete than it’s ever been seen before, with 2 previously unreleased tracks (Hello, I Love You & The WASP (Texas Radio And The Big Beat)) returned to the running order and with sound newly remixed and mastered from the original multitrack tapes by The Doors’ engineer and co-producer Bruce Botnick. This is now the definitive edition of this famous performance and features over an hour of bonus material!

  1. The trailer looks great. I’m not a huge Doors fan but they’ve started growing on me over the last few years. I’ll definitely get this. I got that “When You’re Strange” DVD a while back and wasn’t so impressed with that.

    • I’m gonna buy this DVD too… man, whoever was involved in bringing the clarity of view to this concert footage gets my applause!

      I never bought or saw footage from “When You’re Strange”… gonna fish around Youtube for it now.

      I’ve been hooked on The Doors since my high school years… and the best book on The Doors (IMO) is “No One Here Gets Out Alive”. 🙂 \m/

      • I saw that book cheap in a local shop so I’ll give that a go! I read the one by Greil Marcus recently but that was a bit weird… thanks for the tip!

        The quality of the footage looks stunning on the new DVD! Someone’s done a great job on it. “When You’re Strange” is worth seeing… it’s got great footage but it’s too fast and Johnny Depp narrates it really badly. It could have been a lot better.

        • With all due respect to Johnny Depp, (cause I feel he’s a sensational actor), you wonder why he was chosen to narrate “any” documentary or video on The Doors?

          I would have chosen a Rock Music legend or person that was closely linked/familiar to The Doors to narrate. Then again, I’m just a Metalhead dude that blabs… LOL!

          I’ll look up this Greil Marcus book too… thanks for your tips! \m/\m/

          • You’re welcome man! Yeah, Depp’s great but he was a strange choice and he sounded really bored doing it… He even reads out quotes from band members which is odd, it would have been better to show interview footage. It’s still worth watching if you’ve not seen it because there is great footage in it.

  2. I am going to buy this DVD three. The remastering on it looks fab. I’ve always been a Doors fan so this will be great. They should have used Val Kilmer who played Jim in the film to do the narration.

    • Hey… that’s a cool choice for a narrator on that documentary being discussed! Val Kilmer was excellent portraying Jim Morrison, IMO. He does resemble Jim Morrison quite a bit too.

      Rock Steady 80’s Metalman \m/\m/
