Two years ago the band produced "Wild Child - Live In Concert" a 22 song double disc CD set of songs that The Doors made popular on stage as well as songs from their last album that they were never able to perform live with Jim Morrison, due to his unexpected death. Recorded 100% live, this CD set can be purchased and MP3 clips can be heard on the Wild Child live double CD page of this site. Below is what one expert said about the CD set :
… [Wild Child's live CD] has been in production for over a year as lead singer David Brock has sought perfection on each and every song. I honestly think that this recording could get passed off to even a seasoned collector as being a new unheard Doors live show from the 1960's. It's the most incredible re-creation that I have ever heard"
