20 The Doors Rarities Series - 9/15/68 Late Show, Holland

1st on: NOVEMBER 2007, 15TH. Yeah...
ANOTHER LOST TREASURE ... A CONCERT WITHOUT JIM... HE WAS PRETTY DRUNK/STONED !AND COLAPSED !!! SO RAY, ROBBIE AND JOHN STARTED WITHOUT HIM ,, THEY SOUNDED VERY RAW , FAST AND AMAZING !!!!
Info from that night:
The frequency range is very low ( but this is the case on allcopies of Amsterdam , not only on my cassette ) , ca. 80-3000 Hz.There are little clicks every couple of seconds sounding like avinyl recod w/ little crackes , they are there only after recordingit / digitazing it .The help function of my program said the clickscome from " synchronisation problems " but they do not say what todo against it " when I am denoising the tape & thenafterwards lift the upper mid frequencies , it sounds much better &clearer than the original , only the noise is not in front anymore,but I do never denoise completely because then you have this strangecomputer echo, then I rather hear a little noise."There were two tape sources for the Amsterdam show. The first cutsout during the 'Light My Fire' jam and the second which contains'Light my Fire' in its entirety. However, neither tape seems tocontain 'Unknown Soldier.' There is a rumour that floats around that'Unknown Soldier' was played in Amsterdam, sung by Robbie, and arecording of this exists. I was merely asking why would almost theentire show surface, while one track would be "hoarded" or kept amongthe "inner circles" but we've already seen such cases."
On September 15, 1968 a drugged and drunken Jim Morrison was taken tohospital after collapsing on the stage of the Amsterdam Concertgebouw,having stumbled into the middle of a live set by Jefferson Airplane.Morrison's consumption of alcohol and hallucinogenic drugs was legendary,but the incident suggested he might no longer be in control of his intake.His collapse in Amsterdam came after a day of heavy drinking, and sourcesclose to the band revealed he swallowed a sizeable block of hashish givento him by a fan immediately before the show. Ray sang quite good andincluded the usual poetry of Jim during 'Break On Through' and 'SoulKitchen,' Robby started 'Unknown Soldier' and Ray continues it. As a trio,The Doors impressed.

TEMAS: 1. Announcement by Vince Treanor, The Doors' road manager 2. Tuning > Ray Speaks 3. Break On Through > There You Sit 4. Soul Kitchen 5. Alabama Song > Backdoor Man 6. Hello I Love You 7. Light My Fire 8. The Unknown Soldier (tape cuts1:10)

SOUND QUALITY: 7

Notable post. Curioso que el público no haya pedido a Jim Morrison, quien estaba con un lavado de estómago a causa de una gauda intoxicación. Fue un preámbulo a lo que sería The Doors después de 1971.

Mil gracias, B.

Según he leido por ahí, se dice que esta grabación hace referencia al Early Show. Fuera el primero o el segundo de la noche, fue un concierto histórico. Gracias por el aporte.
