Audio: Peter Frampton at the Agora, 1974

Posted By on Tue, Oct 7, 2014 at 10:10 AM

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.


1. Something's Happening
2. Doobie Wah
3. Lines On My Face
4. Plain Shame
5. Just The Time Of Year
6. All I Wanna Be (Is By Your Side)
7. Wind Of Change
8. I Want To Go To The Sun
9. Do You Feel Like We Do?
10. White Sugar

And a few more "vintage concerts" from our budding series:

AC/DC at World Series of Rock at Cleveland Municipal Stadium in 1979
Smashing Pumpkins in Tremont in 1991
Queens of the Stone Age at Euclid Tavern in 1999
Warren Zevon at the Odeon in 2000
Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band at the Agora in 1978
The Grateful Dead at Richfield Coliseum in 1990
