Iao Theater was an interesting ansd intimate venue for this concert.
The 350 seat Iao Theater opened in 1928 as a vaudeville and movie house. During World War II, people like Bob Hope and Frank Sinatra
entertained the troops here (according to Wikipedia). We can now add
notables like Ray Manzarek and Roy Rogers to the list!
Some notes about the recording:
Short raps immediately relevant to the upcoming song are included as
part of the song. Longer raps have been separated as their own "banter"
The vocals were mixed somewhat low. In fact, "banter" track 12 has Ray
talking about vocals volume and rock music.
The false start to Hurricane is because Ray's microphone stand fell
over a number of times and he needed someone to come up on stage
to rebalance it.
Roy Rogers' playing was superb and worked well with the Doors tinged
flavor by Ray Manzarek. Roy sounds different on his own and good CD's
to buy would be his "Pleasure and Pain" as well as "Slide of Hand".
