THE DOORS
The Complete Stockholm 68 Tapes [A DoinkerTape, 2CD]

Live at the Konserthuset Stora Salen, Stockholm, Sweden; September 20, 1968. Fairly to very good soundboard (mega-rare restored 3LP set).

Thanks to Doinker for sharing the tracks at Dime.

Doinker noted:

These two performances are an eye-opener if you’ve never heard them before. What you get is a wowser recording of an in-shape, ready to kill you Jim Morrison. The man is out for blood and it shows. The only thing wrong here, and it’s the ONLY thing is that Jim is off mike for the first “When The Music’s Over”. The recording is clear enough that you can just about hear him, but alas there is nothing that can be done about that now. The material itself is stellar and the band is in top form. Enjoy this show, it’s a mind-ripper.

  3. Great to have all this together. Now to get all the Roundhouse shows together on one set.

  7. Why we may never see the complete roundhouse?

  8. Lifelong Doors fan and this is really appreciated. We haven’t had any Doors material for a while so thanks for this.
    I saw them at the Roundhouse in ‘69 though the interesting link from ND has made me question which set I actually saw . . . those were different times and playing hookie from school I was less precocious than some music goers and didn’t have the money some had to go to everything that ever happened. However I wasn’t expecting the life changing, consciousness altering experience this was to prove to be. There was a strange smell throughout the evening as I recall and wafts of what I took to be smoky incense, very odd. Great lighting effects too!

    Then later I was privileged to go to the press launch of ‘Alive She Cried’ at the ICA in London in 1983 where the remaining members were interviewed by Robin Denselow which was truly fascinating not least because I got talking to some awfully nice boys sat behind me who said they were in a band and when asking them their name was intrigued to hear they went by the extraordinarily exotic nomenclature of ‘Echo and The Bunnymen’
    The Doors meant a lot to me
    Once again thanks for this Big O

  10. Most overrated band ever. Tiresome and dreary at the best of times.

    By Allen Thomas on Dec 30, 2014

  11. Nice post for those in need of these tracks; but the Roundhouse tapes may not exist apart from the Granada video. There were two shows maybe two nights, I’d have to check. The existing footage has to be the most exciting footage extant. When I hear comments like Allen’s it confirms my “you had to be there” theory of why people love certain music.

    By rich on Dec 30, 2014

  12. BigO - many thanks for a great recording of The Doors. For several years, I’ve enjoyed their Detroit, MI show at the Cabo Areana. This one ranks right up there. All the best in the New Year to you and the BigO followers!

    By Bubbles on Dec 30, 2014

  13. Hey Allen – most overrated band ever? Huh? Ok, that’s your opinion. But: What about the Velvet Underground, Pink Floyd, The Sex Pistols, Oasis or Nirvana?

    By Tony Lauber on Dec 30, 2014

  14. Thank you Big O Amigos: Some of this will go well with the Thompson New Year’s Eve sub-zero bonfire-fireworks ribfest.
    Respectfully,
    James

  15. @james

    Sounds like a fun party, are we all invited?

    Happy New Year to everyone.

    By Steve on Dec 31, 2014

  16. Great gig, great sound, great find! Doors music has brought me a lifetime of good times and wonderful memories. And the opening to the movie APOCALYPSE NOW with the slo-mo helicopters and the Doors song THE END has GOT to be one of the best movie openings ever. I feel I’m opening myself up for debate here, but I don’t care. THANKS AGAIN BIG O!

    Happy New Year!

    P.S. For the naysayers: Frank Zappa once said, “If you don’t like my music, there’s all those other names on the list.” R.I.P. Frank, Ray, Jim, Jack Bruce……

  17. Old as I may be, I only saw The Doors through the eyes of a kid. I was 13 years old in a grocery store in Amarillo, Texas, while on a camping trip from Tennessee to the Grand Canyon with my family, when I heard a radio disk jockey say Jim Morrison was dead (there was FM radio over the store Muzak system, as opposed to elevator music). I’ve never forgotten that moment. When I broke into radio in 1977, that is when I discovered The Doors for real. I remember our program director telling me, “Don’t waste your time on Doors bootlegs, they’re few and far between, hard to get, and for the most part pretty awful”. Some time shortly after that, I went to a big flea market at the Fairgrounds in Memphis, and got my first boot, The Doors at the 1970 Isle of Wight Festival. I thought and still think it is fabulous. A few years later, I was blown away by “Apocalypse Now” as well. Up until the bridge over the Mekong while on the mission to take out Kurtz, I thought it was the best Vietnam movie of them all, probably pretty authentic as to how it was more than any other movie about that Hellish mess. Like them or not, The Doors were collectively an awesome band. Their music has withstood the test of time, and while psychedelia, sounds great today. Not bad for an 8 year band. Thanks for this, Big O folks.

    By Mr. Jimmy on Dec 31, 2014

  18. Morrison on his detractors: “They hate us because we’re so good.”

    Like any number of other big-time bands, they had their share of drooling idolizers and contemptuous haters. To each his own, but I never understood why they were so despised… UNTIL I saw a certain wretched MOVIE done by the most self-deluded and overrated of big-time Directors. In a way, it combines both extremes: contempt disguised as adulation by completely ignoring what the band and the singer were all about.

    By Happy Camper on Dec 31, 2014

  19. My top 5 bands of all time not in any order jethro Tull, Pink Floyd,Doors,Zeppelin,Eagles. I often laugh at people suggesting and it’s i guess how they react, some of the most overrated bands of all time, Beatles,Floyd,Zeppelin,Doors,and it’s just someones opinion.

    By peter Chrisp on Dec 31, 2014

  20. If you really want to hear the Doors firing on all cylinders, before the posing and hype got in the way, track down the Matrix 1967 stuff. No egos, Jim was sober, and the band was tight as could be.

    By Just Bill on Dec 31, 2014

  21. Thanks Bill will check out

  23. I don`t know who is the bigger poser,
    Jimbo or Darth.

    By glynn jones on Dec 31, 2014

  24. Darth wins.

    By glynn jones on Dec 31, 2014

  25. when the music `s over.

    not soon enough. cheesy pop organ and silly psychedelic stream of unconsciousness lyrics made the doors one of the most ridiculous ” we think we are heavy” bands ever.

    By glynn jones on Jan 1, 2015

  26. …remember when we were in Schenectady…

    By glynn jones on Jan 1, 2015

  27. Holy freaking crap, Bill! The Doors - The Complete Matrix Tapes is astoundingly good. Thanks VERY MUCH for the tip!

    By Mr. Jimmy on Jan 1, 2015

  28. Thanks BigO, The Doors are in my top ten list of favorite bands. Really enjoy this site, but some of the people that post need to get a life. They complain when darth posts comments on here, yet when he doesn’t comment on a post they still bring him up…wth.

    By deadwing on Jan 1, 2015

  29. theyre trying to instigate and provoke me to comment so they can jump on anything i say.

    back around 6 years or so ago maybe slightly more ray manzarek did an interview with robbie and they were talking about various things and at one point the topic of how many recordings the doors had in print at that moment. i couldnt believe my ears when he said 63!!!
    they had released various bootlegs and so on and had so many recordings revived and outtakes type material put out that it totaled a massive 63 separate cd releases. i think a bunch of those have gone out of print by now but there still has to be a few dozen high quality items out there that are worth having. for a band that essentially only put out material from 67-70 that is absolutely mind boggling. and i too am a huge fan of theirs. if their career had lasted longer i could perhaps divide it into periods and say i prefer this era over that era but with only 4 yrs worth of material there just isnt enough time to do that with. i like the doors. period. if what they did didnt happen til 4-10 yrs later then i would agree that it was posing or imitation or fake etc. but they were there at the time it was happening and they were part of what made it happen. i think ppl tend to not realize that they are what they are or were.. because they didnt get on the bus or tune in early enough. thats ok.. it doesnt matter when u get on board.. theres enough for all of us. just listen and enjoy.

    By darth on Jan 1, 2015

  30. yea Darth, agreed, except that Manzarek can’t be trusted about anything Doors-related. The man never let an inconvenient fact undermine a better PR story. And if there ARE 63 recordings in print, it’s a good bet that 50-60 of them are remixed and regurgitated reissues of reissues of old releases remastered.

    By Happy Camper on Jan 1, 2015

  31. >>>>”except that Manzarek can’t be trusted about anything Doors-related. The man never let an inconvenient fact undermine a better PR story.”

    I have to concur with you HC…

    there wasn’t a better promoter of the doors & Jim Morrison than Ray from 1980 on along with Danny Sugarnans book….who was the next best promoter of perpetuating the myth & so called greatness of the doors & Jim…

    of course it’s all subjective…were the doors good…?

    sure….but I wouldn’t even put them in my top 10 of all time…maybe even not in the top 25…

    By Jerry's Finger on Jan 1, 2015

  32. the best one is DOORS Danbury High 67. The beginning with the old coot telling everyone to “stay in their seats and no smoking” is worth the price of admission. The show is vintage and dam good as well.

  37. I have a rare copy of the second part of the show with mack the knife anyone interested in buying it ? It’s in mint condition

    By Billy on Jan 5, 2015

  38. Yeah guys, the lizard king was one of the best performers in the rock scene. Strong personality - and THAT sexy voice! But many of his lyrics were mere crap.
    As 15 year old kid I loooved the Morrison Hotel album. Simply a perfect party record and a rock & roll masterpiece.

    By Tony Lauber on Jan 6, 2015

  39. fully agree mr.lauber..great voice , silly lyrics more often than not.

    By dropkick sarge on Jan 6, 2015

  40. Back in my high school days, the first band I was in decided to do “Light My Fire” for our school talent show. We were OK and I did my best Jimbo impersonation. Little did we know that we would win the show and, as the song says, we ate “more chicken than any man’s ever seen”. Light My Fire indeed!

    By Johnny Kinkdom on Jan 9, 2015

  41. thanks, big-oh! i will grab this one before it expires.

    I-)

    By I-) on Jan 10, 2015

  42. Mr. Jimmy, glad to oblige. The Matrix 67 is the best live Doors that I’ve heard.

    By Just Bill on Jan 12, 2015

  43. Val Kilmer’s Jim Morrison was one of the scariest and freakish portrayals of a rock/poet I’ve ever seen. I highly recommend the video “Jim Morrison’s Grave” by Steve Taylor.

    By Job Hunter on Jan 22, 2015

  44. the video imagery isnt bad either but if u close your eyes and / or just listen to the rehearsals and actual live performance of eddie vedder with the doors at the 93 rnr hall of fame induction ceremony in la ca.. crown plaza i believe.. the only one i didnt go to other than the first one til the end of 95 when i left nyc.. since it wasnt in nyc.. u will hear what has to be the best ‘imitation’ of jim with the remaining doors doing a few songs. just 3 songs wouldnt cut it but with all the extra material filling out a full cd it makes it more worthwhile. if u havent heard this.. look for it. they did the same thing with cream. a full cds worth. pity i havent seen the same effort put into the ccr set with fogerty and bruce etc.
    however there was a nice 80min absolutely perfect quality vhs and im sure now a dvd of that event. i had that and at the time took off just the audio of the performances and made an audio tape of those back in feb or so of 93.
