CD Reviews
Live in Boston 1970
Review by Gary Hill
The Doors were often times a study in contradictions. So, too, is this CD set. They are high points and low points – brilliant things and useless things.

The Doors (40th Anniversary remix/reissue)
Review by Julie Knispel
The mid to late 1960’s saw a sudden emergence of rock bands reacting to the sounds and styles brought over as part of the British Invasion. From folk inflected psychedelic rock (The Byrds, some Grateful Dead) to full flight psychedelia (Jefferson Airplane), the reaction was swift and decisive.

Waiting for the Sun (40th Anniversary Remix)
Review by Julie Knispel
Waiting for the Sun was the Door’s first number 1 selling album, reaching that lofty position on release in 1968. In many ways, this was both a boon and a bane.

The Doors - Classic Albums: The Doors DVD
Review by Gary Hill
You just can't go wrong with this DVD series. They start off by picking only albums that truly deserve the "classic" label - and that's a great thing.

The Doors - Feast of Friends BluRay
Review by Gary Hill
So, the idea behind this was that The Doors chose to make what they called “an imaginary” documentary that just sort of happened around them.

The Doors - Live in Europe 1968 DVD
Review by Gary Hill
Previously out of print and just reissued by Eagle Entertainment, this DVD is a study in contrasts. On the one hand, the performances here are magical, psychedelic Doors extravaganza.

The Doors - When You’re Strange – A Film about the Doors DVD
Review by Gary Hill
In some ways this documentary parallels Oliver Stone’s film. In some ways it moves past that one, taking a more in-depth look at the other three members of the group.

Blue Öyster Cult - Extraterrestrial Live
Review by Gary Hill
Released in 1982, this album is a very solid chronicle of a BOC live during the height of their career. Combining prog elements with accessible hooks and potent metal, this album definitely qualifies as prog metal.
