The Doors - Live in Pittsburgh (1970)

Posted by Amelia Swhizzagers On 12:58 AM

The single-disc performance presents over an hour of incendiary and soulful live music from the late Jim Morrison and surviving Doors John Densmore, Robby Krieger and Ray Manzarek.Highlights include a version of “When The Music's Over,” during which Morrison improvises with the musical dialogue and leads the band into bits of songs they'd never played live before. Also featured are Doors classics including “Break On Through,” “Five To One,” and an extended, tracklist-closing version of “Light My Fire,” plus takes on Robert Johnson's “Crossroad Blues,” Howlin' Wolf's “Back Door Man” and Willie Dixon's “Close To You” (with Manzarek on lead vocal and Morrison on backup).

LIVE IN PITTSBURGH 1970 was mixed and mastered by The Doors' longtime engineer/producer Bruce Botnick, who recorded several concerts from the band's now-historic 1970 tour on multitrack tape for the Absolutely Live album('70). The concert would have been released sooner save for two small missing sections from the original 8-track masters. Instead of allowing that to prevent the release of this show, the band decided to insert the missing snippets from one of the other 1970 concerts, a process facilitated by Botnick's expertise and familiarity with the tapes.
