A Note To DOORS Collectors From Bruce Botnick:

 


The Source For This Release Is One Of The Few Remaining Sets Of Vinyl Disks That Were The Medium At That Time For Delayed Playback On Radio Stations Around The Country. We Took The Disks, Cleaned Them And Transferred Them To Digital. The Digital Tapes Were Then Transferred To Sonic Solutions At DIGEFX Where A Light De-Crackling And De-Clicking Were Performed. The Commercials And Boiler Plate Were Edited Out And You Have Just The Meat Of The Show.

 


As You Listen You Will Notice That You Are Listening To A Vinyl Disk, A Record. So If You Hear An Occasional Tick Or Orange Peeling Just Relax And Make Believe That It's 1979.

Part One: Beginning Of The Doors/Visionary Dreams
"After bringing some one hundred and fifty artists before these microphones, you may well ask, why a four-part special on The Doors? A band whose lead singer died eight years ago, and therefore can only be talked about, and not with. Well first, I've wanted to do a show honoring this group for a long, long time. Secondly, The Doors were an entity in rock and roll that was so completely ahead of it's time, not only lyrically and musically, but caused so much questioning of our perceptions, that to this day, The Doors remain an unexplained and mysterious incantation that we hear, but do not quite believe. Tonight, we will talk with keyboardist Ray Manzarek, drummer John Densmore and guitarist Robby Krieger. And we will talk about Jim Morrison, vocalist, lyricist and poet."

Part Two: Exploration And Morrison's Sojourn
"The ceremony tonight will include a rather graphic interview of the lives of Ray, Robby, John and or course, the lead singer, lyricist and poet Jim Morrison. Plus we'll meet The Doors manager. Also a man who's writing a book on Morrison's life. Now, as I warned you last week, some of these stories MAY shock you. But they are real... As you listen to these accounts of The Doors as they unfold, I want you to keep in mind, these are not stories of self-indulgent party-goers, but the true life adventures of people who were exploring the limits of life and death, musically, chemically..."

Part Three: Cultural Excursion Into The Void
"And The Doors were making music for the birth of a new-born awakening... Up until now, The Doors had enjoyed THE ultimately respect of their audiences and an almost religious-like following. But gradually as The Doors became internationally famous, Morrison was singled out as a sex symbol. Suddenly their audiences, who The Doors had always felt so close to, and at one with, changed. No longer were they willing to become participants in a Doors' concert excursion into the void. The crowds of rock and roll explorers became a mob of weekend voyeurs who came not for adventure but to see a freak show."
