This is a well recorded live album and a raucus time is had by all!

The only thing that would be better is if it would have been recorded a little later when they were doing "Jim Dandy" live.

There's still a Paramount Theater in my hometown of Austin, MN.

It is one of those that has lights in the ceiling that look like stars, building walls, and balconies along the sides so it seems like you are outside in a town.

BOA didn't play there when they came to town in the seventies, however. They played at the Riverside Arena because the Paramount was a disco at the time.

It has since been restored to its original appearance and intent and is used for stage presentations.

I think the album says half was recorded in Portland and the rest at the Paramount in Seattle,I hate when they tear down some of the old buildings.

I had this tape years ago and didn't like it at all. Played it only a couple of times. I was just thinking the cover would have looked great in an Ampex Quadraphonic box, with the yellow border Ampex used.
