The Stampeders - Backstage Pass (1974 canada, stunning tough live classic rock, 2006 reissue)



Backstage Pass recorder at Ontario Place and released before year's end. A sold-out crowd of 13,000 fans, capturing their live presence, which was always one of their trademarks, the record featured live versions of "Devil You", "Johnny Lightning" and a cover of "Blue Suede Shoes". "I used to ask the guys if we have to play music when we're on stage. It always got in the way of my comedy routine," King quipped. Slick editing (for the time anyway) stripped the gags out of the record and left one of the purest live albums of its day, showcasing the band in its most familiar stage - in front of screaming fans.
