For Your Weekend Listening Pleasure: The Doors Light Your Fire at Memorial Auditorium
Yes, yes it is. Here, then, The Doors at Memorial Auditorium on July 9, 1968 (scroll down) -- pieces of which occasionally appear on "unofficial" live anthologies, mostly "The WASP (Texas Radio and the Big Beat)" and "Hello, I Love You." If the '70 gig was The Doors on their way out, the '68 show was The Doors on their way up -- Waiting for the Sun, after all, would prove the band's sole No. 1 record. And, despite the back-pocket production quality, it's a powerful best-of including most of the key tracks off the '67 debut, among them: "Break On Through (To The Other Side)," "Soul Kitchen" and a blazing, for lack of a better word, "Light My Fire," which I didn't think I ever needed to hear again. Then I listened to this.
