This is the infamous show where Morrison allegedly exposed his junk and got busted.

More than worth it for Jim's insane drunken pillorying of the audience. How many concerts have you heard where the singer yells at the crowd for no apparent reason "You're all a bunch of fucking idiots!"? He continues to goad them for being slaves and being told what to do all their lives, and having their "face stuck in the shit". Then manages to stop a song which the band clearly want to keep playing, just to stop him talking and get on with the show, shouting "this is all fucked up", etc, till they do stop. The sound quality is good enough for an audience recording, although the filler tracks' quality is wretched. The music isn't the most together or harmonious... Interesting? It's more than interesting - it's a hell of a show!!!
A great, if also egregious, moment in rock history.
