A drunk and unfocused Jim Morrison stumbles through two Boston Arena shows that are loaded with evidence of the potency of Ray Manzarek, John Densmore and Robbie Krieger.

A drunk and unfocused Jim Morrison stumbles through two Boston Arena shows that are loaded with evidence of the potency of Ray Manzarek, John Densmore and Robbie Krieger.

The keyboardist, drummer and guitarist deliver inventive takes on nearly every song, filling holes that Morrison leaves with some muscular improves. The trio takes “Light My Fire” on a long and windy journey on the third disc of this set, the part of the show in which Morrison has pretty much disappeared. He interjects snippets of “Summertime,” “Fever” and “St. James Infirmary” with varying degrees of success — either the mic cuts out or he forgets words — but keyboardist Manzarek milks “Fire” for all its melodic and harmonic value. Tapes come from the tour that became “Absolutely Live” with sound quality ranging from iffy to good.
