The Doors’ Live at The Bowl ’68 is a remarkable piece of work, as much for the technical wizardry of the recording it comprises as for the pointed restraint on the part of the iconic band as it performs. Arguably at the height of its popularity at the time of this July 5, 1968 performance at the famed Los Angeles venue, The Doors was about to peak in commercial terms, at which point its music suffered as much as the attitude of lead vocalist Jim Morrison. On this recording, however, the dumbed-down single from its then current album, Waiting for the Sun (Elektra, 1968) is the only vestige of the lack of imagination that would afflict its work in the years to come
