Review by Guillermo
PROG REVIEWER
2 stars This single is mostly interesting for the fans of The Doors who want to have everything the band released officially while they existed as a band. It was released in the U.K., but not in the U.S., and it wasn`t a successful single because it never appeared in the U.K. singles charts.

Both songs of this single showed the band trying to sound commercial in Pop music terms.

"Get Up and Dance" (composed by Manzarek / Krieger) is a danceable Pop song which also includes a female trio called "The Other Voices" in the album gatefold cover singing backing vocals (a first on a Doors`s song, if I remember well now), with lead vocals by Manzarek.

"Treetrunk" is the most rare and maybe tthe most sought-after song from their officially recorded catalogue for The Doors`most dedicated fans and collectors. This song (composed by Krieger and sung by Manzarek) only appeared in the B-side of this single and it wasn`t released again in any compilation album from The Doors. I tried to find in the web a MP3 file from this song. I never found it...but more or less one year ago I found a video-audio recording (that is, the video showed the single being played on a turntable, with not very good sound) of this song in youtube (maybe someone interested could still find it in youtube now). Finally, I could listen to this very "rare" song for several times....but I wasn`t very impressed. The song is a very Pop song, not bad, but also not very interesting, and maybe for this reason it was destined for a B-side and nothing else.

Official copies of this rare single still sometimes appear for buying on the web in the ebay websites.
