From Quiz Where Was That Live Album Recorded?

Answer: Winterland

Peter Frampton recorded many of the tracks for the US Billboard Number One album at Winterland in San Francisco, two blocks from where the original Fillmore Auditorium was located. The Winterland recordings were done using a 24-track recorder. The album was originally scheduled to be a single record album until A and M Records decided to record songs at additional venues and release a double album. "Show Me the Way", "Do You Feel Like We Do?" and "Baby, I Love Your Way" were successful single releases from the double album. When Winterland was constructed in 1928 it was called the New Dreamland Auditorium. Within a decade it was changed to Winterland when ice skating was introduced. In the mid-sixties promoter Bill Graham occasionally rented the facility to accommodate bigger crowds than his Fillmore Auditorium could handle. The Paul Butterfield Blues Band and Jefferson Airplane were the first two rock acts that Graham booked at Winterland. The venue closed in early 1979 after a concert that included the Blues Brothers, The Grateful Dead and New Riders of the Purple Sage. Apartments now occupy the spot. In 1964 The Beatles kicked off their US tour at The Cow Palace in Daly City, California. In the seventies Kezar Stadium near Golden Gate Park became the site of many rock concerts following the departure of the Oakland Raiders.
