The Doors: Live In New York

Rhino and Bright Midnight Archives unleash four inspired performances from The Doors‘ final tour with Live In New York. The latest addition to the band’s acclaimed series of archival concert releases, this six-disc collection contains all four of The Doors’ performances – in their entirety – recorded in 1970 at the Felt Forum in New York City. The collection will be available November 10 at all retail outlets, for suggested list price of $89.98 for the physical boxed set. A digital version featuring select highlights from all four Felt Forum shows will also be available at all digital retail outlets for $9.99.

The year prior to these shows, The Doors became one of the first rock bands to play New York City’s Madison Square Garden. When they returned in 1970, Densmore says they chose to play the Felt Forum, a smaller venue at the Garden. “It was more intimate, and you could feel the audience more,” he says. “There was more interaction, and the acoustics were much better, because it was designed for music.”

Fans will be blown away by the crisp sound found on Live In New York. All four shows were mixed and mastered by the band’s longtime engineer, Bruce Botnick, who recorded a number of shows from The Doors’ 1970 tour on multi-track tape for the Absolutely Live album. While most of the music contained on Live In New York is unreleased, a few songs (and portions of songs) surfaced in 1970 on Absolutely Live and in 1997 on The Doors Box Set.

Prior to the release of Live In New York, Rhino will release 180-gram vinyl versions of all six Doors studio albums on September 15. Previously available only in 2007’s The Doors Vinyl Box, original stereo mixes of The Doors’ six albums will now be available individually at all vinyl retail outlets for a suggested list price of $24.98 each.
