Thanks to the Wolfgang’s Vault website, we get to hear Sammy Hagar, live at Winterland (San Francisco, CA. 11/19/1977) as one of their featured concerts!
This show, recorded for the King Biscuit Flower Hour, is a classic solo performance. It’s a MUST-LISTEN for Sammy fans, as it is so very different from the vibe of the Sammy Hagar concerts that most fans are familiar with! This is before the tequila, before the Cantina, before Cabo, before Van Halen, and even before his Geffen Records hits in the early 80’s.
This is back when Sammy was still fresh out of Montrose. He had just released Nine On A Ten Scale in 1976, and The Red Album and Musical Chairs earlier that year, in 1977.
It’s old-school rock, with a trippy SPACE ODYSSEY thrown in!
