Live In Pittsburgh 1970 [CD]
Recorded on May 2, 1970 at the Pittsburgh Civic Arena during The Doors final tour with Jim Morrison as lead vocalist, LIVE IN PITTSBURGH captures a spectacular concert performance from the legendary quartet. A single-disc tour de force, the album features over an hour of incendiary energy from Morrison, keyboardist Ray Manzarek, drummer John Densmore, and guitarist Robby Krueger as they take the audience on an epic musical journey. The powerful recording was expertyly mixed and mastered by the Doors longtime engineer/producer Bruce Botnick, who recorded several shows from the band s now-historic 70 tour on multitrack tape for the Absolutely Live album. Along with classic Doors hits and choice covers, highlights include Morrison s improvisational riffing during an exciting 22-plus minute version of When The Music s Over, leading the band into bits of songs they d never played live.
