4 stars I began to know and explored this band far too late. I believe it was in 1993 when I bought my first The Doors cassette and I was stunned with their music. They were quite unique as they didn't have a (permanent) bass player and the role of bass as rhythm was taken over by the organist Mr. Ray Manzarek. For me it was very odd, cause I know there are bands that don't have any guitar player or don't have keyboard player but a band with no bass player? It's weird for me until I know The Doors...

Anyway, I bought the cassette of this album back in 1995 or 1996. I felt this "live" album was a bit different from others when I heard it for the fisrt time. I felt like beng there among the crowd. This album is so organic and so "alive". Songs like "Petition The Lord With Prayer" and "The Celebration Of The Lizard" are among my favourites.
