While we await some call-backs for items forthcoming ...

Last night, in the comments of Monday's KZEW item, someone asked (yet again) if anyone out there had a copy of Peter Frampton's January Sound Studios sessions from '75. "I wanna know where the GOLD at," writes one Friend of Unfair Park. Well, as a matter of fact, you need not look any further than right here.

Turns out, just a few weeks back it turned up on the KZEW tribute page -- at least, 11 minutes and 37 seconds of the show did, anyhow. But it does include the entirety of "Do You Feel Like We Do," and, yes, we do now. From the description:

February 5th 1975 - Peter Frampton was in town supporting Johnny Winter at Dallas Memorial Auditorium on the 4th of February. The next night, Frampton makes local rock history with a live KZEW broadcast from January Sound Studios. The live version of "Do You Feel Like I Do" from the concert became an instant hit as the number one requested song on the ZOO for 1975, causing Frampton album sales to soar in the Dallas-Forth Worth area, nearly a year before Frampton Comes Alive was released. KZEW's Mark Christopher jokes, "Jeez, Peter Frampton should STILL be mowing Ira's lawn to this day to thank him!"

I'll keep looking for the whole thing. But forthcoming, because I love you, another in-its-entirety-KZEW concert broadcast. Because nothing says "Happy New Year!" like reliving 35-year-old concerts.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
