Live At The Aquarius Theatre: The First Performance
On July 21, 1969 The Doors played two concerts to packed audiences at the Aquarius Theatre on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood, California. The shows were recorded but only one song from the opening set saw release on ABSOLUTELY LIVE; fans had to wait more than three decades to hear the whole thing on LIVE AT THE AQUARIUS – THE FIRST PERFORMANCE. In the aftermath of the notorious Miami bust, Jim Morrison and company tread cautiously at first but that doesn't last long - after such early favorites as “Break On Through (To the Other Side)” and “Soul Kitchen,” the group launches into powerhouse versions of then-new songs including “Build Me A Woman.” With plenty of encouragement from the hometown crowd, LIVE AT THE AQUARIUS captures the legendary band on a great night, and we'll bring it back for an encore to wish Doors guitarist Robby Krieger a happy birthday.
