Product Description

Doors triple bill. 'Live at the Hollywood Bowl' catches the band at their peak, performing hits such as 'Light My Fire', 'The End' and 'The Unknown Soldier' live on the 4th of July 1968. 'Dance on Fire' is a compilation of live and televised performances, promotional clips and behind-the-scenes footage, including the original performance of 'Light My Fire' from the Ed Sullivan show. 'The Soft Parade - A Retrospective' features further rare clips from the band's private archives, including footage from their 1968 tour of America and previously unseen interviews.

Synopsis

This essential Doors release compiles three films--Dancer on Fire, The Doors: Live at the Hollywood Bowl and The Soft Parade. The first is a collection of 14 songs--including some extremely rare footage--drawn from the group's many television performances. The second, filmed live at the Hollywood Bowl in the summer of 1968, features Jim Morrison and the band performing an extended version of "Light My Fire," plus 10 of their other most loved songs. And the third includes the Doors' last televised appearance on PBS in 1969 in the aftermath of the infamous Miami concert that resulted in Morrison's arrest for "indecent exposure." In addition, the compilation includes bonus songs: "Break on Through" (Isle of Wight track) and "The Ghost Song."

I purchased this, my first Doors DVD, and possibly the only one I'll ever need. This plays like an epic music video of the Doors legacy, their Hollywood Bowl concert starting off a three hour interspersion of live music, backstage clips, interviews and raw studio footage, encompassing music at its spiritually purest.
This is a first rate purchase and a great way to celebrate the return of the Doors in their fresh 21st century guise.

Format: DVD
its hard to believe it's 30 years since the world lost a musical genius, just listen to what he left us- hours and hours of fantastic music....I truly wish I could have been old enough to have seen them live ( born 1969). I finished work early today to watch this DVD , it doesnt matter that it duplicates some of my well watched videos it's worth every penny....The Hollywood Bowl concert really captures the essence of the band and I was pleasantly suprised that the 2.0 digital soundtrack held up to some seriously loud volume.....The dance on fire section rocks as well with the awesomley haunting Adagio.The Soft Parade- a retrospective is compelling watching with the sheer number of little clips of the band interspersed giving an intimate feel to the music and the emotion that went into creating some of the best music around. My only criticism is the lack of an introduction by the remainding members of the band. It would have been great to see them as they are today although "The Ghost Song" contained on the bonus materials gives you a good idea. All in all an excellent buy even if you own all the videos.*Remember video tape doesn't last forever..R.I.P Jim.....

Format: DVD
This came along at just the right time. I already owned the individual video of each of the 3 titles included here but, through constant playing, these now needed replacement. This is great value for money.
The Hollywood Bowl concert provides you with a visual experience of a Doors concert when they were at the height of their powers.
The Soft Parade PBS show provides a look at The Doors following the debacle at Miami. The programme was made to showcase the band as they were unable to tour following the almost blanket ban on their live activities by the promoters. This was the only way to see the band perform tracks from the album.
The collection of promo films acts as a "best of". You even get the notorious Light My Fire performance from the Ed Sullivan Show. Ed requested that the Doors change their lyrics to omit "Girl we couldn't get much higher". So they did in rehearsals and then Jim screamed it out in the live performance. No more Doors on the Ed Sullivan Show.
Well worth investing in.

I used to own this on vhs before the tape went mouldy. Not sure if the dvd holds as much footage ans the nhs used to. There seemed to be some footage of the dorrs live in europe missing. Still it's worth owning for the Hollywood Bowl footage and Ray Manzereks movie videos.

I have given this DVD 5 Stars because it is BRILLIANT! It has loads of stuff on 'The Doors' that I'd never seen before and it really does take you back in time and gives you an idea of what it must have been like when 'Jim Morrison' was alive. I would highly recommend it product. Thank you.

When i watched this DVD i was quite pleased. It contains most of their live tv performance, music videos and live concerts. The only annoying thing is two videos in particular 'riders of the storm and Hello, i love you. With 'Riders of the storm' i was expecting a music video (as there is one available), but i was gutted to find that all it was, was a black screen with credits rolling with the music in the backround. With Hello, i love you, you get to see the video, but the credits ruin it yet again by going over the screen.
Other than that it was an exellent purchase, and well worth buying!!!!!!

100% brilliance. All you need to know. "Dance on Fire" is a real mixed up bunch of videos but all the better for it. Admittedly the sound quality is not great but you have all the CDs anyway yeah? How on earth did Jim & co get away with such a ludicrous mixture... pretentious poetry, frothy pop and seriously warped rock'n'blues. Well, I suppose people are strange.

I bought this as a gift for my dad and he absolutely loved it as it contained rare concert footage which you will never see again.
