DANCE ON FIRE Worth having in your video collection if only to marvel at the quality of some of the early video clips, viz. "Break On Through(To the Other Side)". Jim played to the camera beautifully in this clip considering we're looking at 1967 when the music video clip was in its total infancy. I think the most bizarre clip has to go to "People Are Strange" which has the group looking quite out of place, except perhaps for Jim, sitting in the streets whilst the rest of the band seemed to be at a total loss as to know what to do whilst Jim lip-syncs. Video clip we could most do without: "LA Woman". I tend to think that Ray was overly literal with his interpretation here, however, it wasn't lost on me that he used the same model and colour car that Jim had owned for the freeway scenes.
RATING: 8/10 Some great vintage Jim and that could've been me running my fingers through his hair if it hadn't been for my parents living in the wrong country! Michelle Benisch from the 2001 Spring Scorpwag issue.
