Jim Morrison - Bird of Prey

"Bird of Prey" appears on An American Prayer. I posted the spoken word in the first video while the second is "Bird of Prey" played by George Winston on the 2002 album Night Divides the Day – The Music of the Doors.

Here is a link to a YouTube video combining Jim Morrison's spoken version of the poem and Winston's piano playing, although unfortunately it does not always play straight through.

Remembering The Poet

Rest in Peace
James Douglas Morrison
December 8, 1943 – July 3, 1971

Ray Manzarek of The Doors has said many times in interviews over the years that Jim Morrison would want to be remembered first and foremost as a poet. So with today being the 40th anniversary of Jim Morrison's passing I post The American Night, which from what I have read appeared on the original version of An American Prayer in 1978 but was not part of the remastered version that came out in 1995.

Not only a great poet, Jim Morrison was a tremendous singer, a genius, a fantastic songwriter and sadly a tortured soul. He has not been duplicated and never will be.
