AllMusic Review by

This is merely the first known appearance of one of the group's more renowned live bootlegs, the bulk of which is taken from their 1969 TV appearance on PBS. Sound is only passable, but the performances (mostly of Soft Parade material) are good, eliminating the strings that some listeners found distracting on the official versions. Especially good are the funky take on "Build Me a Woman" (a clear improvement on the version that surfaced on Absolutely Live), and a lengthy workout on "The Soft Parade" itself. Has frequently appeared on other Doors bootlegs since, on LP and CD.
