Doors fans are getting the opportunity to hear a full concert from the rock legends on the new album The Doors – Live in Vancouver 1970. The show was recorded at the Pacific Coliseum in Canada on June 6, a little more than a year before frontman Jim Morrison’s death. Released today in the U.S., the concert recording has often appeared as a bootleg and retains a reputation as an excellent Doors performance.
Part of what makes this Doors concert special is a guest appearance by blues legend Albert King. The bluesman lent his guitar talents to four songs with The Doors, including “Rock Me,” “Who Do You Love” and the Motown classic, “Money (That’s What I Want).”
In the album’s liner notes Doors keyboardist Ray Manzarek remembers the evening: “What a funky night ... Jim singing his ass off with the prod in the butt by a legendary old blues man.”
