Audio: Peter Frampton at the Agora, 1974

Cleveland history is a terrific vault to dive into on any given day. Stories abound in every direction. Probably the most fun spot to look for cool stuff, however, is the Agora in the 1970s

We posted Bruce Springsteen's legendary 1978 show at the Agora a few weeks ago, and many Clevelanders chimed in with their own stories from that night.

Today, we present crisp audio from Peter Frampton's gig at the ballroom in 1974. The show came just a few months after he cut Somethin's Happening.
