not the best concert video, but it's worth it for the die-hards
22 July 2005 | by Quinoa1984See all my reviews

Probably the biggest disappointment about this DVD/video, the Doors on their tour of Europe in 1968, is that it's not really a full concert like with the Hollywood Bowl video. It's more of a pastiche of different clips and appearances, and interview footage from Paul Kantner and Grace Slick from Jefferson Airplane, who give some interesting (if not really necessary with the rest of the footage) anecdotes on the Doors. That's not to say what's on here isn't good- there's fine performances of 'When the Music's Over' and 'Five to One' among others, but many of the numbers are shot in grainy picture with crummy sound (i.e. 'Spanish Caravan'). It's not unwatchable/unlistenable footage, but it brings to mind how much better the clarity of a filmed concert can be. That it's also not full performances (patched together at times) it's also not as fulfilling. Still, as I said, it's worth it for die-hard fans, who want nothing more than to get (rare) footage of the Doors in their prime.
