‘There are things known and things unknown and in between are the doors.’ Jim Morrison

‘He walked majestically on stage clad in a tight black leather suit, white shirt and brown shoes. The crowd applauded him and Morrison, taking up a stance at the mike, smiled briefly and belted into his first song. His singing is every bit as powerful as the Doors’ albums suggest, while the backing trio of organist Manzarek, drummer Densmore and Kreiger, guitar, are really together and play with precision and timing that are quite remarkable. Densmore, Manzarek and Kreiger are very good musicians and Morrison, with his great sense of showmanship and stage presence, provides a dynamic entity to the act. When he saw the Roundhouse for the first time he said, ‘This is going to be fun. This is the place for us’. After the show on Saturday, he commented, ‘This is the greatest audience. It was just like starting again.’ It’s been said that it is impossible to get the Doors and Jefferson Airplane together on the same stage in the USA. Last weekend Middle Earth achieved the impossible.’ Derek Grant, 1968
