4 stars 'When I was ack there in Seminary School, there was a person there who put on the proposition that you can petition the Lord with prayer...Petition the Lord with prayer...Petition the Lord with prayer...YOU CANNOT PE-TITION THE LOOOOOOORD...WITH PRAAAAAAYYYYYEEEEEEER !!!'

This is a great live album, which contains the entirety of the theatrical suite 'The Celebration Of The Lizard' (originally, it was intended to be on the Waiting For The Sun 1968 album, but only Not To Touch The Earth was save at that time). There is also some real good moments, like Soul Kitchen, Break On Through (To The Other Side), the medley Alabama Song/BackDoor Man/Love Hides/Five To One and the 16 minutes of When The Music's Over. There are also some beat poetry pieces, like Dead Cats, Dead Rats, or Petition The Lord With Prayer (the one I quote here), originally taken from the first part of the song The Soft Parade.

A Nice double live album, the first of the Doors's career, the first to be released when Morrison was still alive and well. His voice is perfect here, and the 'Petition The Lord With Prayer' moment is almost frightening, and still shivering.

Zardoz | 4/5 |
