  2. Thank you Big O Amigos. This will be a necessary change of pace for this upcoming Thompson Saturday night.
    I was introduced to the Doors’ music by Antonia Rovira, a retired official of the Organization of American States. I was in Bolivia in 1978, suffering from para-typhus as only a teen-aged AFS student can. Roveria had the entire studio works of the Doors as part of a very extensive record collection. While spending two weeks semi-bedridden and prohibited from direct sun exposure, Jim Morrison and company were my musical companions. It made a difference. Before I had only heard a worn-out 8-track of LA Woman. Memories. Hola to John Warren, Curt Marr and Oscar Erazun, my fellow expatriates who shared in those musical and other personally historic moments.

    By James Smith on Jun 11, 2019

  3. This is awesome. Thanks

    By Bill on Jun 12, 2019

  4. Truly oarsome.

    By Dill on Jun 12, 2019

  5. I might quibble with the suggestion that 1970 was the best year to hear The Doors live as Jim Morrison’s alcoholism was already weighing heavily on band. While their earlier performances were more intense and spontaneous, they remain a truly great band…. both a great triumph and tragedy of the late 60’s. Thanks for posting this one.

    By songster1928 on Jun 12, 2019

  6. Thank you, BigO.

    This really is bang on the program.

    By Brian Griffin on Jun 12, 2019

  7. Thanks Big O - my main inspirers with no exceptions.
    Probably have all this and any tidy up and remaster fo the extent work is most welcome
    As Brian said “Bang on!”

    By swappers on Jun 12, 2019

  8. I’ve never heard of them before now. Should I have?

    By Brian Griffin's Brother on Jun 12, 2019

  9. Fantastiques DOORS et fantastique coffret.
    Voilà ce genre de musique que l’on aimerait écouter plus souvent sur votre site.
    Un grand merci Big O.

    By Bernard (France) on Jun 12, 2019

  10. Rumor has it Jim had a BIG SNAKE

    By T J on Jun 12, 2019

  11. Jim was hung like a goddamned bull !!!

    By Grace Slick on Jun 12, 2019

  12. The Airplane and Doors toured together in Europe back in 68 . Amsterdam especially was wild . People would hand us acid on the streets

    By Grace Slick on Jun 12, 2019

  13. Jim and I had many days and nights together back then . He could keep it hard for hours

    By Grace Slick on Jun 12, 2019

  14. All that despite all the dope and booze

    By Grace Slick on Jun 12, 2019

  15. The Cobo Hall show was officially released in 2000.

    By COMIXX on Jun 12, 2019

  16. Bright Midnight Records (owned by The doors) officially released The Cobo Hall show.

    By COMIXX on Jun 12, 2019

  17. It is out of print though. Gray market set.

    By Tony on Jun 12, 2019

  18. It’s OFFICIAL ‘ These Huge Nuts are bouncing hard and nonstop ON YOUR CHIN .

    By Comixx MORON on Jun 12, 2019

  19. What a buzzkill. What a MORON

    By Comixx MORON on Jun 12, 2019

  20. Rumor has it Jim had a Big Un

    By U L E on Jun 12, 2019

  21. Rumor has it the other Doors had / gots Big Uns too . Jim’s was the biggest though.

    By U L E on Jun 12, 2019

  22. I have the COBO show from Rhino Records and whilst there is overlap it is not the same thing at all. The second disc here is ONE of the two from Rhino and the rest are truly airplay compilations from all over the media the third being TV show broadcasts recordings. The Seattle gig too has been available as a boot for years but not in this quality here

    By swappers on Jun 12, 2019

  23. Thanks for this one! Any Doors is OK with me..

    By Tom on Jun 12, 2019

  24. You can’t tell the difference in Jim Morrison’s performances in the month between the Detroit and Seattle shows . Obviously in Detroit he was fresher and more energetic. Really into it .By Seattle he seemed tired and somewhat bored , probably from all the dope and alcohol. It must have been very frustrating for his bandmates . With Jim by then you never knew from night to night . He was on his downward spiral by then . Ray had to basically be his babysitter quite often

    By Bill on Jun 12, 2019

  25. The two doors albums that they did after Jim’s death were excellent. Ray was on lead vocals . They didn’t sell though and without Jim the magic and mystique were gone .

    By Bill on Jun 12, 2019

  26. anytime i go to a concert and the sign reads “Doors open at 8″ I get excited then I remember, he`s dead.

    By sluggo on Jun 12, 2019

  27. Swapper, would you please stop eating the rock candy in the urinals. Thank you very much

    By Kings Road on Jun 12, 2019

  28. Fuc y’all trolls. Now this is the shit Thank you Big O keep em coming

    By Derrick on Jun 12, 2019

  29. This is the code of the groupies:

    Holla for the swallowa
    Spitters are quitters

    By Bebe on Jun 12, 2019

  30. Who are these bozos?

    By Smashmouth on Jun 12, 2019

  31. But ‘Kings’ it’s the only breath freshener you use!
    I gave up snorting the sweet blue cake after I saw you gargling with it as you lay there in the trough!

    By swappers on Jun 13, 2019

  32. 6/10/2019 Former Fleetwood Mac guitarist Danny Kirwan has died aged 68.

    By sking on Jun 13, 2019

  33. Who is this bozo Danny Kirwan?

    By Smashmouth on Jun 13, 2019

  34. Right on sister Bebe

    By Pam Des Barris on Jun 13, 2019

  35. Oops. That was 2018 Kirwin died. My mistake. I thought is sounded familiar. Thanks Newsweek for the faulty information.

    By sking on Jun 13, 2019

  36. I luv the taste of jizz . I always swallow. I also luv it when they cum on my tits and face .

    By Groupie Chick Traci on Jun 13, 2019

  37. Are the posters that hate Jews & niggers the same guys that pretend to be women groupies? And are they also the same guy that composes love ballads to Swappers? Just curious. It’s OK to come out of the closet now guys. This is 2019. We in America now have that LGBTQ stuff. You can even join the armed forces and fight to protect your rights and the rights of others just like yourselves. More power to ya!

    By Sinister Porpoise on Jun 13, 2019

  38. I think the groupies are real ‘ same with Jimmy Page who comments here regularly.

    By Tommy on Jun 13, 2019

  39. Grace Slick might be real too . I just googled and everything she said was documented. The Doors and Jefferson Airplane did in fact tour together in 68

    By Tommy on Jun 13, 2019

  40. These Huge Nuts are bouncing hard and nonstop ON YOUR CHIN .

    By Sinister Porpoise Moron on Jun 13, 2019

  41. Jacking off to Traci’s comment

    By Smashmouth on Jun 13, 2019

  42. Looks like I hit a nerve, Moron. And the groupies were proven false once when Bebe’s comment was signed by Jimmy Page. And Jimmy’s comments are just pasted like Grace’s comments are. Tommy is the deaf dumb & blind kid.

    By Sinister Porpoise on Jun 13, 2019

  43. Funny, the posters that responded to my comment were not mentioned in my comment. Why so upset boys. By the way. it’s quite an honor to finally get my Huge Nuts bounced on the BigO.

    By Sinister Porpoise on Jun 13, 2019

  44. Me thinks sinister pussy takes it up the arse.

    By ron on Jun 13, 2019

  45. sinister tortoise sounds a lot like swapper

    By Jerry Disher on Jun 13, 2019

  46. Jerry, are you going to sing to me too now. And Ron, why so upset. I didn’t say anything against you. I liked the original Ron but then somebody stole his name and started reposting his comment endlessly. #2 Ron can schtick it up his arse.

    By Sinister Porpoise on Jun 13, 2019

  47. Practically every person commenting on this blog is a moron . Most have nothing to do with music . What’s the point of having a comments section? Maybe the powers that be find all of this amusing.

    By James on Jun 13, 2019

  48. I don’t comment much anymore James . Since my name has been copied what’s the point ? It’s not just me though ‘ most have had their names hijacked even the trolls . All of this hasn’t got anything to do with the music. I just listen and download what I like .

    By Ron on Jun 13, 2019

  49. That other comment wasn’t me either ‘ but I do agree with what Traci and the fake me said . Swallowing is the only was to go . It’s like a salty milk shake . Tastes sooo good . And the look on their faces while they moan with pleasure is sooo satisfying

    By Pam Des Barris on Jun 13, 2019

  50. By the way Jim Morrison was indeed hung like a bull as Grace stated .

    By Pam Des Barris on Jun 13, 2019

  51. The biggest by far though remains Huey Lewis . Huey is larger than life . Read my book I’m with the band .

    By Pam Des Barris on Jun 13, 2019

  52. I have no sinister porpoise . . . . . and I am more of an asinine aardvark ;)

    By swappers on Jun 13, 2019

  53. I was never backstage with Huey Pam ‘ but if he had a larger Coc than Gene Simmons ‘ he must have set a world record.Gene was giagantic

    By Bebe on Jun 14, 2019

  54. Sinister Tortoise must be a filthy cocsucking jew piece of crap that hangs out in the mens room at bus stations and glory holes. I wouldnt be surprised if he was the guest of honor at a bukkake party. Great stuff Big O

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Jun 14, 2019

  55. Yawn the same old tired boring schtick. Every post without let up. I didnt know there were so many idiots on the internet

    By Ron on Jun 14, 2019

  56. These Huge Nuts are bouncing hard and fast nonstop ON YOUR CHIN

    By Sinister Porpoise MORON on Jun 14, 2019

  57. I have not commented today . I guess people here are so screwed up they can’t uses their own names .

    By Jerry Disher on Jun 14, 2019

  58. I know I sound like a broken record ‘ but more niggers playing basketball tonight. NBA finals . Absolutely no white players on either team . God damned niggers have ruined American sports . Them goddamned baboons. They act like savages. And them goddamned tattoos. I’m a southerner and I remember a time when white athletes played basketball and football. I also remember when niggers had their own areas of town . There were colored drinking fountains and niggers couldn’t go into restaurants. Also niggers would never dare even look at a white woman . We need to go back to them days .

    By Jerry Disher on Jun 14, 2019

  59. Need more Emit Till reminders.

    By Jerry Disher on Jun 14, 2019

  60. That’ll straighten out them baboons

    By Jerry Disher on Jun 14, 2019

  61. Jerry “ give it up dude . White baby dolls love sucking and fucking them big black 14 plus inch hoagies . Can’t complete with Mississippi black snake

    By C Tony on Jun 14, 2019

  62. Fuck you nigger lover .

    By Jerry Disher on Jun 14, 2019

  63. Yes Jerry, you do sound like a broken record - and one that wasn’t worth listening to in the first place. Give it a break. But thanks Big O for the music - just wish you had a moderator to keep the idiots in their cages.

    By Rod on Jun 14, 2019

  64. So another nigger lover ‘ no wonder things are so goddamned screwed up . Would you let your daughter marry one of them baboons? Probably so and have mixed grandbabies. The world is messed up bad

    By Jerry Disher on Jun 14, 2019

  65. Jerry sounds like he has a small dic. I exclusively date black men because they are fact I’ve never seen one who didn’t have a massive member .

    By Rhonda on Jun 14, 2019

  66. I warned this would happen back in 1964 . Now look at it .We need order .

    By Governor Lester Pickrick Maddox on Jun 14, 2019

  67. The Doors were great and legendary. Thanks for this .

    By Thomas on Jun 15, 2019

  68. Lets face it Jerry. We have lots of nigger lovers out there. Our women are stupid white fucking trash pigs. They only want the black anteater dic. Fucking whores

    By GOV GEORGE WALLACE on Jun 15, 2019

  69. I got a solution for this nigger with white woman shit but it ain’t the fifties no more fucking shit .

    By JW Milam on Jun 15, 2019

  70. No ROIOs in three days. Makes me wonder if BigO saw this garbage spew and finally gave up.

    By Tony Pizza on Jun 15, 2019

  71. I would hate that Tony . Either moderate or get rid of the comments/ or make you click a separate link so the idiots can have their free for all . I wouldn’t let it affect the music though. It’s been said before ‘ what do comments have to do with the music ? I mostly ignore them . Most can’t do that it seems . Too bad

    By David on Jun 15, 2019

  72. It’s always been contentious here though . I remember the Darth / Jerry’s Finger days . Some insults and profanity even back then . No moderator and people will act like morons .

    By David on Jun 15, 2019

  73. Tony - I assumed everyone here subscribes to the newsletter and Big O mentions his annual holiday and is due back around the 21st, so don’t panic the tide of filth, nonsense and sheer drivel won’t put him off!

    By swappers on Jun 15, 2019

  74. In the meantime, hope he celebrates his return with a month long overdose of of Public Enemy, NWA, Charlie Patton, Gladys Night, Neville Bros., Notorious BIG, Tupac, Ice T, The Shirelles, the Coasters, Sam Cooke, Harry Belafonte, Cab Calloway, Nat King Cole, etcetcetc… well, you get the idea.

    By Happy Camper on Jun 16, 2019

  75. I’m so happy to learn that Jim Morrison had a very big penis . That definitely makes him more interesting and appealing. My grandparents loved the doors and so did my parents . I grew up listening to them .

    By Katie Kessler on Jun 16, 2019

  76. Excellent sound!!!!!!

    By Jimmy Costa Rica on Jun 19, 2019

  77. Can you post the Beatles Revolving 1 & 2 BigO?
    Or does anyone have a copy?
