The Doors - Live At The Matrix '67 mp3, flac, wma

The Doors live at the Matrix 1967 has appeared in various forms for the past many years. My first version purchased in 1989 was 2-CD set with booklet from Swinging Pig Records. Swinging Pig was one of the earliest bootleggers in the world, hence the "pig" reference to police surveillance of activist organizations in the late 1960s and early 1970s. In relation to the Doors this would be contextualized after their New Haven 1967 concert where Morrison was arrested and an FBI file was created due to his anti-Vietnam war and pro civil right stance with songs like "Unknown Soldier" "Five to One" and "Peace Frog"Live at the Matrix 1967 has appeared in various versions and quality has varied from excellent first generation reel to reel recorder to 4th generation copies that are usually incomplete.The best version that has appeared thus far has been the Doors Bright Midnight records version because they went to the source, Peter Abrams, an amateur recording engineer at the time, who used a Abram's Akai reel-to-reel vacuum tube tape recorder with multiple microphones placed in various locations through out the Matrix Lounge.
Once upon a time The Doors weren’t a super group, once upon a time The Doors were a club band relentlessly touring up and down the Sunset Strip ... and on any given night during the spring and summer of 1967, you might must catch them at the Whiskey A Go Go, The Fillmore, The Fair Grounds, or here at a very cool club called The Matrix. I actually saw The Doors at this venue, and I wish with all honesty that I could say I remember these songs from that night, but I don’t. I may have been there, I’d like to think I was ... but no, I can’t swear to it. Never the less, this recording certainly brought back a brick load of hazy memories for me.This is an album for the die hard fans only, perhaps even more so for folks who’ve actually seen The Doors live ... though seeing them live in a setting like this, and seeing them live when they took the jump to an arena setting, once their hit “Light My Fire” set the world blazing, are two entirely different stories. This is a Doors who relied on blues covers and R&B to get them through an evening, and an evening often included two sets. Despite the fact that their first album was already selling rather well, they still hadn’t broken on through to the other side. On this wonderful release you’ll be treated to hearing The Doors perform tracks for their upcoming second album Strange Days, you’ll hear Jim improvise the lyrics to several songs, and there is a pleasant unscripted psychedelic / funk journey that more than belays the fact that this band is already too large for this tiny stage.Don’t go expecting to find perfection here, this is still a band in transition. This transition is most noted with the opening to “Light My Fire,” which almost fizzles out, where Manzarek’s infamous intro doesn’t kick in until the end of the first chorus. “Moonlight Drive” has to be one of the high points, and the Van Morrison song “Gloria” will eventually be stretched out to epic proportions. But the best and most wonderful aspect of this release is hearing Morrison sing with such restraint. He sings as if he’s concentrating on lyrics that are unfolding right before his eyes, he’s absolutely in the moment, centered and assured ... an aspect that is sorrowfully lacking on later live recordings. There’s a melodic clarity found here that I didn't hear again until I saw Joy Division live; the similarities were astonishing.Please, don’t for one moment think that you are going to hear a live recording processed in the manner material is brought to you today. This was 1967, cassettes had just hit the market, eight track taps were the big thing, and for quality live recording, you were lucky to have a four track reel to reel. Though I will say that a great deal of effort has gone into cleaning up this event, yet allowing this performance to maintain its integrity; it doesn’t sound muddy or muted from over processing or digitalization. It pretty much sounds like a recording from the spring of 1967 ... and I’m right back there, with my Jeanie Shrimpton hair cut, my red wide whale corduroy bellbottoms, and black ribbed turtle necked sweater. Heady days, headier nights, I love when the fog lifts just enough to allow me to remember things so clearly.This is a most precious musical event, a piece of history, before it all was, and then disappeared.Review by Jenell Kesler
