The Doors Live in Bakersfield is one of the more unique shows from The Doors during a tumultuous 1970 when Jim Morrison was on trial on trumped-up charges in Miami. The band had been playing together live for five years, and were tight enough to be able to veer into the unknown. That’s what they opted for in this California agriculture town on a hot summer night. Featuring improvisations and medleys of The Doors many beloved hits from across their albums, Live in Bakersfield is a shamanic adventure for all who listen. Recorded August 21, 1970. Hear “Love Me Two Times” like you have never heard it before and a 13-minute version of “When The Music’s Over.”

“We’re down in the south, or in the Midwest, or maybe on the way to Bakersfield. And we’re, we’re driving in a ’57 chevy to an old roadhouse. Can you dig it?”
– Jim Morrison
