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ﾒ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.
The first show on February 13, 1973 kicked off an unprecedented string of compelling bookings Asleep At The Wheel, J.J. Cale, Ry Cooder, Commander Cody, Dr. John, the Flying Burrito Brothers, Peter Frampton, Dan Hicks, Lightning Hopkins, Howlin' Wolf, Freddie King, Kraftwerk, Little Feat, Taj Mahal, Don McLean, the Outlaws, John Prine, Robin Trower, Jerry Jeff Walker, Muddy Waters and scores more.
At Ebbets Field, hundreds of shows from every genre rock, blues, folk, country, jazz and comedy were professionally recorded by the staff of ListenUp, the local audio/video retailer and Ebbets' sound company. Co-founder and president Walt Stinson entered into an agreement with Ebbets to either simulcast the shows live on free-form radio stations or record them for rebroadcast.
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.
