I know a lot of people have criticised Pittsburgh but a lot criticised Boston and I love that release so I'll wait until I hear it.
I just think it's great we get to hear shows that are nearly 40 years old in beautiful multi-track quality. I'm still amazed at the sound of the Boston release - it's so full and vibrant, but it's not loud or lacking in nuance. Even if Jim was that night!!!!!

I dont like the plastic sound......for example: Philly 70...

Saying that the version of backdoor man and five to one off the midnight sampler do sound good. Jim's voice holds on the screams. I wonder if the new to be released pittsburgh will sound different to the sampler?

I'll admit, I'm skeptical about the Pittsburgh show...what I've heard, I've been unimpressed with. The Back Door Man/Five To One from the Sampler were boring. Someday Soon DOES sound better (only slightly) in Seattle. As for WTMO, I like the climax of the song, but will it hold up to the rest of the album? Guess we'll find out.
HOPE EVERYONE VOTED (if you could in the 20-some-odd states holding their Primaries today). VOTE OBAMA!!!

Wellcome to the boards man...but couldnt you start posting with a kinder coment? That is not he way to make yourself known here!
Personaly, I feel that the doorsmusic and releases have been given a great push since jeff sampol took over. Two live concerts in the last 6 months hadn´t happened since the early days of BMA. management is also working with man new projects at the time: Felt Forum, Doors documentary, IOW, and I suspect they are working on things they even didnpt mention to us at all. The issue of releasing sounboards has been discussed here ,any times, and there re many oppinions regarding that matter.
Even if I´m noy hugely impressed by the new live releases, it seems fair thet fanscan now get more live material from the band they like.
And here we have the huge luck to speak t the manager too...something quite rare.

I'm completely new to this...I just registered. And somehow I feel like I already did something wrong. But anyway, I felt compelled to be a part of this site after reading about this new Pittsburgh release, and some of the questions being presented. I was at that concert in May of 1970. Admittedly, it was close to 40 years ago, but it was truly one of the most memorable two hours of my life, and I'm happy to report that my frontal lobe has taken excellent care of these memories. Jim was wearing a plain dark blue t-shirt (i think it had a breast pocket in it), blue jeans (slightly belled, I guess what would be called "boot cut"?). Now here is where it get's a bit cloudy...I swear he was wearing low-cut, navy blue, Chuck Taylor converse. Does anyone know if this is correct? I was only a few feet from the stage, so I could see everything quite well.

I went to that concert, and the only photos from Pittsburgh 1970 are the three on the third page of the insert... Two on stage, and one outside of the Civic Arena. Jim is wearing a cowboy hat, and you can see "downtown" Pittsburgh in the background. It appears to be getting dark, so early May in western PA, that would be about 8:00 pm. I guess "The Blues Image" were already playing when the Lizard king arrived. BTW...the Civic Arena is gone after one more Penguin season.
