Jim Morrison, The Doors, Rochester NY, March 13 1968, by Bill Hosley.

“I was in 7th grade. I bagged 7th row seats at the Eastman Theater for The Doors one concert in Rochester – at the height of their fame. I loved “When the Music’s Over.” I had my dad’s camera. Took this just as he sang, “we want the world and we want it … .” and before “now.” It’s a little out of focus, but pretty memorable.“  via

Jim Morrison and Robby Krieger with Marc Benno, recording 1971′s LA Woman.

(Pet peeve: the number of posts, especially on Pinterest, referring to the fella on the left as Jerry Scheff. Nope. The uncropped version of the photo DOES include Jerry toward the left, playing bass, with Marc on guitar now in the center. Know your session players, kids! And I do love what a clear picture this paints of how intimately they recorded this album!)
