The Doors supplied plenty of post-Independence Day fireworks on July 5, 1968 when the legendary quartet played the Hollywood Bowl, a concert that is considered to be the band s finest on film. For the first time, the film from the historic performance has been painstakingly restored using the original camera negatives and the audio has been remixed and mastered from original multi-tracks by the group s engineer Bruce Botnick. This new restoration offers a stunning visual upgrade from earlier versions and will give fans the closest experience to being there live alongside Jim Morrison, John Densmore, Robby Krieger and Ray Manzarek, who opined, You can hear it as if you were at the Hollywood Bowl, on stage with us. LIVE AT THE BOWL 68 includes three previously unreleased tracks from the performance. Technical issues with the recording of “Hello, I Love You,” “The WASP (Texas Radio And The Big Beat), ” and “Spanish Caravan” prevented them from being released in the past. Now, through meticulous restoration of the audio, all three will be included, marking the first time the concert has been available in its entirety.

Read what the group’s engineer Bruce Botnick has to say about this recording:
Back in 1990 the Analogue 8 track at 15 ips nab masters were speed resolved and transferred from a Studer Analogue 8 track recorder with Aria Electronics to Digital on a Sony PCM-3324 Digital Multitrack recorder at 44.056 kHz/16 bit. The sampling frequency of 44.056 was the standard then for NTSC 3:2 pulldown and matched the Telecine film transfers. There were some guitar overdubs done then and small items were added that were integral to that final video project. Jump ahead to the year 2010 whereupon those transferrers from 1990 were up-sampled to ProTools at 96kHz/24bit. Those tracks and all the resulting reverbs, delays, effects, equalization and vocal imports were all done in 96kHz in ProTools and mixed on a D-Control ICON digital console. The mix is entirely in HD 96k, though a goodly amount of the information will show up as 44.056 if you do a frequency analysis. Don’t be deterred as this is truly a HD 96k mix.
