From Greg Shaw's book The Doors On The Road:
The Doors' set suffers from sound difficulties, and as a result their performance is humpered. "Light My Fire" leads off with some serious "break up" in Jim's microphone cable, but it tuns out to be a fine version of the song, effectively similar to the LP. "When The Music's Over" features some compelling and nasty guitar work by Krieger, and a punchy "Break On Through" is introduced by a strangely disembodied version of "Horse Latitudes". Speaking though some troublesome low midrange feedback, Morrison announces that they are going to break for a few minutes and attempt to remedy the PA difficulties. According to people in attendance, the Doors never do return. Apparently the sound predicament is never resolved.
My notes:
A nice audience recording, although Jim's voice sounds too low for the most of the show. One of my favorite performances of Light My Fire, too bad for the technical problems.
