While the band was formed in 1967, by 1973, Spirit founding member Randy California had already left the group and moved to Hawaii. Bassist Mark Andes had left after promoting 1970's Twelve Dreams of Dr. Sardonicus and drummer Ed Cassidy left after the tour to promote 1972's Feedback album.

According to the wikipedia, in 1974 Cassidy made it a point to find California and re-establish contact. He eventually persuaded California to return to the mainland and give the band another shot. Another internet report stated that the Spirit name was legally returned, likely at great expense, from the Staehely Brothers, who were behind the group for a while.

Andes worked with California and Cassidy for a while, but never intended to stay, as he was in the process of working with the group Firefall. First known tour dates for this "reformed" group were said to be in October 1974. If that was the case, the members were using these October gigs to nimble up some haven't-been-used-for-a-while musical muscles. Sometimes mellow, oftentimes rocking, this is an enjoyable set featuring a varied style of music - from musical interludes such as Christine to hoe-down songs (Go Down), the laidback Guide Me, a jaunty Satisfaction and a credible cover of All Along The Watchtower before a rousing finale of It's All The Same/I Got A Line On You. If there were any kinks in the joints, they did not show. In fact, there is such a nice groove to the set, it's as if the members were playing like a well-oiled machine. 

Ebbets Field named after the famed Brooklyn Dodgers ballpark was a small club in the early to late 70's located on 1020 15th street in Denver Colorado.It held 238 people which made for an intimate setting between performer and audience.The stage faced bleacher type seating which resembled seating at a sports venue.The walls,floor,and seating were all covered in black,orange,and brown shag carpert.Most of the Ebbets shows were broadcast on station KDPI and KFML in Denver.Shows were supported By The Listen Up Company who also were responsible for the fine sound of these shows.The club was paid by the bands record label to record the shows.Some shows were broadcast as they happened and others were broadcast later with the bands, permission.Music from Rock to Country To Bluegrass to Jazz was played there.I'm always interested in trading for any Ebbets Field shows I don't have.Also looking to upgrade any shows that need upgrading.Any corrections on setlists and dates would be appreciated.Grading is based on sound quality only.Defects such as background noise,cut songs, & digital noise are noted.
