THE DOORS: LIVE AT THE BOWL ’68
2012, Eagle Rock Entertainment, 71 min, USA, Dir: Ray Manzarek

A legendary band, an iconic venue! With their Waiting for the Sun album fresh in stores, The Doors made a triumphant appearance at the Hollywood Bowl on July 5, 1968. The L.A. quartet was at the peak of its powers that night, balancing hit singles including “Light My Fire” and “Hello, I Love You” with epic renditions of “When the Music's Over” and “The End.” Painstakingly restored from original camera negatives and remixed from multi-tracks by the group’s longtime engineer, Bruce Botnick, this mesmerizing film presents the historic concert in its entirety for the first time.
