Absolutely Live -The Doors Show present: ‘Strange Days – 50th Anniversary’
Rah Bar, South Yarra
Saturday 25th August – 7PM
The success of The Doors kept the band in-demand and on the road in early 1967. When they weren’t playing live, they recorded Strange Days at Sunset Sound in Hollywood, the same studio they used to record their classic debut.
They used an eight-track recorder for the first time, which resulted in some memorable overdubs like Krieger’s double-tracked guitar on ‘When The Music’s Over.’ The trippy keyboard sound heard on the album’s title track is one of the earliest appearances of a Moog synthesizer in a rock song.
Strange Days mixed new songs written on the road with some written before the band’s 1967 debut album. In fact, the band performed ‘Strange Days’ during its 1966 residency at the London Fog in L.A., while ‘My Eyes Have Seen You’ dates back to 1965.
Another early track is ‘Moonlight Drive’. It’s the song Morrison sang to Manzarek at Venice Beach in 1965 when the two former UCLA film students reconnected and decided to start The Doors.
Come experience the timeless music of The Doors this August and dance the night away as Absolutely Live – The Doors Show present a stunning recreation of The Doors’ classic second album.To top off the night the band will perfom an hour long 2nd set of all your Doors’ favourites!
