NEW YORK, NY – 1-23-2002

Jim Carroll opened the show. He recited some of his poetry and told some stories. Recorded from about 15 feet from the stage. Only 12 minutes of Carroll’s performance. Ray’s performance is complete. Ray tells stories about his life with The Doors, about Morrison. He plays piano, sings some Doors songs, and talks about his new book “The Poet In Exile”. This is a very intimate and intriguing solo performance.
