A brief history of Ebbets
The Seventies was a special decade for music, and Ebbets Field, located on the first level of Brooks Tower near 15th and Curtis streets, was Denver’s premiere music venue of the time. Founded by concert promoters Barry Fey and Chuck Morris, the tiny club’s four-year run saw an amazing array of star power, including Tom Waits, Bob Seger, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and nearly every other significant act on the upswing.

Now ListenUp has assembled compilation CDs of tracks recorded at Ebbets Field. A portion of the profits from Live From Ebbets Field Vol. 4 , the fourth sampler of an ongoing series, go directly to the Morgan Adams Foundation , which raises awareness and financial support for pediatric cancer research and treatments. This goldmine of tracks will take listeners back a few decades, presenting a striking snapshot of the live music from that era — a thrill for both veterans of the Ebbets scene and new generations that have only heard of the legend.
