1 - VARIOUS (BLUES ROOTS OF THE DOORS)
- STRANGE GODS ARE COMING - (LP)
The Doors Californian kings of psychedelic-blues rock not only stood heads and shoulders above the peace and love hippy explosion of the sixties, but they were also proud to wear their influences on their sleeves by forwarding to the future by reconstructing the past.The early live shows of the band performed in 1967 at the likes of the legendary Matrix Club in San Francisco would feature the group playing two sets, both featuring a mix of band originals and Blues covers done The Doors way.Material such as Im a King Bee by Slim Harpo,Who do you Love by Bo Diddley,Money (Thats what I want) by Barrett Strong (a song that would stay in the live set for the duration of the bands life) and at The Winterland Ballroom over the Christmas festivitesMannish Boy by Muddy Waters were rolled out to an adoring local fanbase.The classic Backdoor Man by Howlin Wolf would also find a place on the groups debut album.With all of the members of The Doors being long time blues fans more material was being worked up during rehearsals and added to the live shows along with new songs from The Doors forthcoming albums.The Doors walked it like they talked it and sadly we will never see the likes of them again...a wonderful mixture of Blues and Psychedelic rock,they proved that in order to meet the future you must never forget the past..NO LIMITS,NO LAWS.................
