Live in Boston is a three-disk live album by The Doors. It was recorded on April 10, 1970, as part of the Absolutely Live tour. Jim Morrison seemed to be intoxicated during the entire show, and he was drinking heavily throughout the performance.

"Robby, Ray, and John stepped up to the plate to carry Jim until he sobered up for a bit. For the most part they're smokin', and through Jim's booze induced haze, he lets out a couple jewels that are truly memorable." - Bruce Botnick[citation needed]

This is part of previously unreleased material of the Bright Midnight Archives collection of live albums by The Doors.
