Live in Pittsburgh 1970 is a live album by the American rock band the Doors. The concert was recorded at the Pittsburgh Civic Arena in Pittsburgh on May 2, 1970 and released in 2008 on Rhino Records. It is the sixth full-length live set released from the Bright Midnight Archives collection which contains a number of previously unreleased live concerts by the Doors.
Live In Pittsburgh 1970 was mixed and mastered by long-time Doors' sound engineer/producer Bruce Botnick. He had recorded several shows from the Doors’ 1970 Roadhouse Blues Tour on multi-track tape for the Absolutely Live album released in July 1970. The concert would have been released sooner if it were not for two missing sections from the 8-track masters. The dialogue section that comes before "Close To You" has been replaced using the live 2-track stereo tapes and titled here as "Tonight You’re In For A Special Treat"

NotesRhino and Bright Midnight Archives deliver another spectacular live performance from The Doors’ final tour with THE DOORS LIVE IN PITTSBURGH 1970. This single disc serves as a fitting bookend to the three-disc Live In Boston collection released last year featuring shows from the same tour. PITTSBURGH 1970 captures the quartet tightly focused and intent on taking the audience on an epic musical journey.
Recorded May 2, 1970 at the Pittsburgh Civic Arena, the album includes more than an hour of fire and energy from singer Jim Morrison, keyboardist Ray Manzarek, drummer John Densmore and guitarist Robby Krieger. Always eager to take a chance onstage or otherwise, Morrison experiments with the musical dialogue during a 22-plus-minute version of “When The Music’s Over,” leading the band into bits of songs that they’d never played live. Along with gems like “Five To One” and “Break On Through,” the group also performed covers of Robert Johnson’s “Crossroads Blues” and the band’s signature cover of Howling Wolf’s “Back Door Man.” Before closing with an extended take on “Light My Fire,” Manzarek took the microphone with backup by Morrison for “Close To You.”
LIVE IN PITTSBURGH 1970 is mixed and mastered by engineer Bruce Botnick, who recorded several shows from The Doors’ 1970 tour on multi-track tape for the Absolutely Live album. The concert would have been released sooner if it were not for two missing sections from the 8-track masters. The dialogue section that comes before “Close To You” has been replaced using the live 2-track stereo tapes and titled here as Tonight You’re In For A Special Treat. The other missing section was of the first 16 bars of music from the beginning of Manzarek’s solo on “Light My Fire.” Instead of allowing the missing music to prevent the release of this show, the band decided to insert the missing music from one of the other 1970 concerts.
