    That looks like it's from the "Classic Albums" series on AXS TV. Every time they show The Doors one, I stop and watch it.

    Fascinating stuff & I love seeing this kinda stuff. Thanks!

    Oh, man! This song is among the very very very best in my world!

    Maybe even THE best one.

    The Doors was not only music. It was more like a theater experience. With music.

    Thanks for posting. I quite possibly had lost my appreciation for that song. Not any more. That piano is awesome.

    Awesome song that hasn't lost a step...but 1:37 ??!! False memory maybe? Cool as beans bass line, but really simple to play, no?

    Oh man, listen to that lovely dirty tremoloed Rhodes! Arm hairs standing up now. Awesome.

    The moodiness of that song’s Rhodes and drum parts and the application of reverb in that mix are a fantastic achievement.

    I love the shot of the two big Acoustic Control amps in the background with their blue horns.

    I used to play that in a covers band. I just went and checked it out on the 4-string. In the lowest octave it's a little weird, not the most natural thing to play but not impossible. Unusual sequence of open and stopped strings. An octave higher it actually is more difficult than you'd think.

    Great video.

    However, when I first clicked it some old b/w video of a 1950’s Country Music TV show came on with Ernest Tubb, June Carter, and Hawkshaw Hawkins. It was fun but I forgot how annoying June Carter was. Could never stand her and that “country corn pone schtick” of hers.

    Back in the 60's, I was a Doors fan. Ray inspired me to start playing keys as his melody lines had great hooks. Even today, I dig electric pianos. Here's my one and only, a Wurlitzer 200A that I restored.
