A collection of presumably unpublished images of Jim Morrison at New York's Fillmore East, March 22, 1968. Three of Morrison on stage (two pictured) with five intimate close-ups likely captured backstage. A particularly poignant shot has him leaning into the microphone with a light projection behind. This two-night, four-show, Fillmore engagement produced what are often considered some of the best shows of the band's career. Though we've been unable to determine the pho- tographer, they are of clear professional caliber and bear a certain resemblance to the work of legendary rock-and-roll photographer Elliott Landy. A striking group of original vintage slides.
