These unreleased recordings were recently discovered when consolidating the band's audio and film works, which had been scattered around the world in various record-company storage facilities. As a result, literally dozens of hours of never-before-released performances have come to light. In all, The Doors recorded approximately 12 concerts in seven cities; some of these songs were released in 1970 on Absolutely Live.For almost three decades these concert recordings sat on storage shelves. After the overwhelmingly positive response to the Live In New York disc from The Doors' box set, Doors fans pointed out that over a dozen concerts had been professionally recorded and demanded to know what had happened to them. Subsequently, the remaining Doors: John Densmore, Robby Krieger, and Ray Manzarek as well as band manager Danny Sugerman, began reviewing every live tape and came away impressed by what they had heard.These live recordings successfully capture a wide range of exciting Doors music from the drunken, over-the-top Boston concerts, to the intense, bluesy show in Detroit, to the stunning performances in Hollywood. This limited edition Bright Midnight: Live In America contains 14 live performances recorded at eight different venues during The Doors' 1969 and 1970 tours. It includes one of only three live versions of 'The End' in existence, and was produced and mastered by longtime Doors engineer Bruce Botnick.
This 13-Track 14-Song Collection Of Audio Delights From THE DOORS' Archive Presents Previously Unreleased Performances From 8 Venues On The 1969 And 1970 United States Tours. It Is Both A Stunning Listen From Beginning To End As Well As A Wonderful Invitation To The Bright Midnight Archives' Releases To Come.
