The Doors Release ‘Moonlight Drive’ Clip from ‘Hollywood Bowl’ DVD
In advance of the Oct. 23 release of the ‘Live at the Bowl ’68,’ a clip of the the Doors performing ‘Moonlight Drive’ has been uploaded to YouTube. The three-minute-plus long video (seen below) shows off the high quality of the 20-song set, remastered for this special DVD and Blu-ray. Even songs thought lost to technical troubles have been restored to give fans the complete concert.
The band’s Hollywood Bowl show is one often talked about by loyal fans of the Doors. In this video one sees a young, cherub-faced Jim Morrison lethargically moving around the stage, but never missing a lyric. Robby Krieger’s guitar sets off the eerie, space-rock song that works to a fever pitch built by drummer John Densmore.
In addition to two songs never before released to video or DVD, the collection provides two hours worth of additional footage. The bonus material includes television performances by the band, memories of the 1968 concert and a history of the group up until that point. ‘Live at the Bowl ’68′ was filmed on July 5, 1968.
