Bright Midnight: Live in America is a live album by the band The Doors released in 2001. It is a compilation of recordings of concerts performed in the United States between July 1969 and August 1970. It was released by Elektra on CD as a limited edition. The CD is the first official publication produced by Bright Midnight Archives, and features an extract from the extensive archival material recorded live, which the band would release in the following years with the label Bright Midnight Archives. It is the equivalent of a CD released in the USA entitled The Bright Midnight Sampler.
