The Doors: Bright Midnight/Live In America (Elektra)

Ian Penman, Uncut, September 2001

ONE BRIGHT MIDNIGHT: 2 songs from 1969 & 14 songs from 1970, a moment of magickal cusp, a genuine celebration, a true revelation, a breathtaking apocalypse then in every sense of that buried-shell occult word.

Total word count of piece: 588
