ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
When people ask me what it was like to talk to Ray Manzarek, I tell them to find a copy of “Myth and Reality”, put on some high quality headphones, turn out the lights, close your eyes, and listen. With the quality and production value of this recording, you will literally feel like Ray is in the room with you. This is two hours of Ray Manzarek at his storytelling best, starting with his roots in the south side of Chicago, through joining the army, and his time with Jim Morrison and The Doors. Included are all the Doors stories you’d expect, plus personal stories that are not available anywhere else. Also included is an original Manzarek piano composition called “All Men Are Created Equal”. Originally produced in 1996 by LA native Harvey Kubernik, and out-of-print ever since, this re-release is a must for all Ray Manzarek and Doors fans alike." - David Dutkowski, Ray Manzarek Archives
