THE DOORS' Previously Unreleased Film 'Feast of Friends' Out 11/11Fans of THE DOORS will savor the news about the November 11 street date of a never-before-released documentary film produced by the band. Titled Feast of Friends, the intimate and rare look at the explosive rock band is, after 45 years, finally being released. Shelved due to lead singer Jim Morrison's legal issues, the uncompleted film was only ever seen at a few film festivals and was never completed. Eagle Rock Entertainment and Doors Property, LLC have painstakingly remastered the audio and video and compiled bonus footage as well as an historic British documentary called The Doors Are Open. [Pre-book Order Date October 17, MSRP $19.98 Blu-ray, $14.98 DVD]

In April of 1968, filming began for what would become the first and only film produced about The Doors, by The Doors. Funded by the band and helmed by friend and fellow film graduate Paul Ferrara, the footage shot for this film would become the well from which the majority of future documentaries and music videos about the band would draw. This film became Feast of Friends, as Paul Ferrara thought it was a great lyric to use for the title. Other than a few appearances in film festivals the following year, an official release would never be seen. Until now.

It has been more than 40 years since the death of The Doors' charismatic frontman Jim Morrison. Despite the general view of The Doors as a historic band that was part of the unchangeable makeup of the psychedelic rock culture of the 1960s, appetite for the band continues to the modern day. In the early 2000s, two of the three surviving original members re-launched a version of The Doors with Ian Astbury of The Cult on lead vocals. That move, along with many uses of The Doors name and music in recent years, came with a side order of legal controversy.

The most recent Doors product to come into the marketplace seems to go back to the beginning. As Ultimate Classic Rock reports, the Doors-produced documentary Feast of Friends is set for DVD/Blu-Ray release. It was the band's own film project, produced as a gift to fans. It's also allegedly been passed around among Doors fanatics for many years, and clips have made their way into Doors films not produced by the band. It was filmed over five months beginning in April 1968 in a free-form manner, mostly offstage.

Featured Book

The Doors On The Road
by Greg Shaw provides a comprehensive timeline of live performances, reviews of the shows, stage antics of the performers, gossip related to the events, and recording sessions.

I took the demos everywhere I could possibly think, just going in the door and telling the secretary what I wanted. Sometimes they'd say, "Leave your number," sometimes they would let you talk to someone else. The recepetion game. At Columbia, they became interested.

—Jim Morrison
