The hippies are lazing around and Jim walks in and lays this happy song about death on them. He freaks them out and blows their minds. Quite ironic when one looks at the lyrical content. This is a highlight of the performance. While the version the evening before in Philadelphia is fiery, the internal makeup is generally per usual.
Things begin normally enough, but by the time Krieger enters into his first solo I can tell the band has found something that want to explore deeper and in greater detail. Krieger sounds if he is shoving his guitar through hunks of space steel….. Typical to live versions Manzarek plays the two note bass thump while Morrison remains silent and the crown goes crazy.
Suddenly, Morrison starts to play with his audience. What starts as some funny hoots and bird calls in short order becomes a shifty hallucinatory break down. Morrison moans, Manzarek takes us from the pub to a space shuttle, Densmore tip taps around his kit waiting to see what Morrison will do next.
Ray scatters hallucinations, Krieger continues to coax strange feedback squeals from his rig. The band rubber bands around the arena with a substantial climax bordering on the edge of white noise. They take their time with the landing, descending dynamically to the return to the verses. The band falls into place and start to hammer musical nails.
Morrison digs and tears into the concluding lyrics in convincing fashion. What a freaking highlight, not only of the evening but possibly of the entire tour. Morrison joins on the choruses and just like that, the Doors are gone, have taken the crowd from the pub, to the beach, to the grave and into the psychedelic skies. Just when the venue thinks the Doors have given all they have the band begins , 'Light My Fire', the crowd roars for what many of them have been waiting for all evening.
