A new archive live album of The Doors performing in San Francisco just weeks before the release of their (breakthrough) second single “Light My Fire”, is to be issued as a two disc set on November 18.

Recorded at The Matrix venue over two nights in March 1967, The Doors perform much of what appears on their self-titled debut album plus several tracks from their second LP Strange Days.

Original band member Ray Manzarek writes in the sleeve notes for the release: “It was early 1967 and The Doors were about to enter the consciousness of the nation. And this is the way it sounded.”

Live At The Matrix producer Bruce Botnick adds:”This is probably the closest we’ve come to a true document of The Doors without constraints”.

Some previously unreleased songs that feature on the album include The Doors’ cover of Allen Toussaint’s “Get Out Of My Life, Woman”.
