    Technically speaking he is listening to An American Prayer from Jim Morrison which was released in 1979 with Ray Manzarek's music. The poems are from his 2 volumes of poetry The Lords and The New Creatures. The Lizard King recorded these in a studio before his death and Ray reformed The Doors to pay tribute.
