The Doors, June 1967, Mt. Tam

Jim Morrison

Tired of those youtube videos that promise live footage but give you only still photos and music?  Me too. Here is live footage - albeit chopped up in an attempt to mimic DA Penebaker's amazing coverage of Monterey Pop. Break on Through was the Doors breakthrough, so to speak, but at this point Light My Fire had been released as a single and was racing up the charts. The Doors had played at the Matrix, Avalon, and Fillmore in 1967 a total of 6 times before this show so they were no mysteries to Bay Area audiences. The venue, halfway up Mount Tamalpais in Marin County, is a huge stone and dirt ampitheatre that's still there today.  "Red Rocks Light," but extremely cool.
