The Doors: Live at the Matrix 1967

by Steve Horowitz

Barrett Strong’s “Money” has the distinction of not only being Motown’s first hit record (on the Anna label), but also is the only song to be covered on studio recordings by both the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. The Doors never recorded this title on any of the studio efforts, but long after Jim Morrison’s death, live versions of this song found its way on various Doors’ collections.

There’s a version on this new release of a Doors concert from back in 1967, which is appropriate as this live double-disc set certainly seems like a greedy attempt to wring more cash from Doors fans.

The question of what should be done with 40+ year tapes of old Doors concerts is problematic. On the one hand, there is nothing to be gained by keeping the music locked away. Fans willing to pay to hear the music certainly would feel entitled to do so.
