   This performance finds The Doors (1 year and 18 days after the death of Jim Morrison)
in Manzarek's home town of Chicago. Obviously, drastic changes have redirected their
focus and, much to my dismay, they dropped most of the songs from previous setlists,
playing songs mostly from Other Voices & the soon to be released Full Circle. Don't get
me wrong, I love those LPs but I wish they had decided to perform songs from L.A. Woman
as well. I think Ray could have sung The Changeling or Cars Hiss By My Window just fine.
Barring that, The Doors are in fine form here and, in my opinion, turned in some of the best
versions of Love Me Two Times after Jim died. This, by the way, was the beginning of the final tour
by The Doors who would ultimately disband around March 1973.
   Hopefully, those of you looking for some post-Morrison shows will enjoy this one. I know I do.

As with my Manzarek shows, I've done nothing to this recording except to upload it to my
hard drive and create Flac files. Considering the age of this recording, I would give it an A to A+
rating but that, however, is always subjective.

Please do not MP3 or sell. Please DO share and enjoy!
