Live at the Hollywood Bowl is the third official live album by the American rock band the Doors, released in May 1987 on Elektra Records. The concert was recorded on July 5, 1968, at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, the Doors' hometown. The 1987 LP release of this album is the Doors' shortest official release, at just 22 minutes and 19 seconds. A VHS video of the concert was also released containing 14 songs.
The entire concert was recorded using several cameras and is one of only two professionally recorded live performances of the band in color (the other being Live at The Isle of Wight Festival 1970). The Doors long-time sound engineer Bruce Botnick recorded the concert direct from the soundboard onto an 8-track machine. The recording of The End was used in film project Feast of Friends which was not released until November 2014.
Initial sound problem's with Morrison's microphone made the first songs - "Hello, I Love You", "The WASP (Texas Radio and the Big Beat)" and "Spanish Caravan" somewhat distorted. This was digitally rectified for the 2012 release by Bruce Botnick. The 2012 DVD also made use of different cameras used at the concert from that released on video in 1987.
