"Moonlight drive" (Version 1, recorded August 1966)

Words & music:The Doors
Album: "The Doors" (40th Anniversary Edition)

Available in their 40th anniversary "The Doors" CD, the song is an early version of "Moonlight drive", Morrison's poem that got it all started when he sang it to Manzarek, in the summer of 1965. There's no Robby epic solo here, nor Jim's "mature" singing.

For the slideshow, I used pictures from the first photoshoots of the band.

The final rendition of "Moonlight drive" is available in "Strange days", The Doors' second record.


PS: Offensive/idiotic comments will be erased. I'm all for freedom of speech but I will not tolerate dickheads who try to pick up a fight in order to find a meaning in their lives by dissing the band.
John, Ray, Jim and Robbie have opened "the doors of perception" for all of us; if you do not wish to enter,then you should simply...leave.
Thank you :)
