So I continue to find "interesting" stuff as I dig through the 1,400 albums I bought a while ago. This time, while listening to "Humble Pie - Live at the Filmore", I decided to read the liner notes and look at the inside of the album cover....and found scotch-taped to the inside....eight ticket stubs for Cobo Hall and St Clair College.

How about these bands at these prices?

Bachman Turner Overdrive and Fludd - St Clair College $3.50 - Feb 17, 1974
Black Oak and Humble Pie - Cobo $6.00 - May 23, (no year)
Tull - Cobo $6.00 - May 12, 1973 (great deal!! :) )
Unknown -Cobo - $8.50 - August 10, 1977
Unknown - Cobo - $ 10.00 - September 21, 1979
J Geils Band - Bowen Fieldhouse - price unknown - March 9 1973
Unknown - Cobo - $8.00 - June 16, 1978
Nugent - Cobo - $10.00 - May 17, 1979

Our last concert (last fall) was over $700 for 4 of us. How times have changed..... :shock:

I have found all sorts of interesting stuff in some of these albums....the owner must have been an interesting dude!! :lol:

phew,I'm not loosing it,I recently told one of our new hires I went to see Jethro Tull for under $20.00 in Vancouver,early 70's.
I don't think he believed me?

Neat to find those old time capsules,I'd frame that bunch!
Keep looking you might a flat as a pancake 70's Homegrown 'Doobie' in there!

Its outrageous to go see a concert now,why I buy concert dvd's I guess.
Thanks for sharing that with us.

Yes but think about how expensive it is to move geezer rockers around the country and for a physician to be in attendance at all times?

I see some of my first amps now about 45 years old and sold to get better stuff long ago listed on this and other sites for more than twice the price I paid for them brand new.

Nostalgia ain't what it used to be.

Some of the ticket stubs I've saved from concerts in my youth have been taped or tucked inside the jacket of the album that was out at the time of the concert; it makes for a nice reminder of being at the live show, and maybe an interesting find for whoever eventually ends up with the album in the future.

I remember paying the princely sum of $17 to see Yes/Ace in the mid 70s in Vancouver. Took the wife to see them locally a few years ago on comp tickets but think you could get the cheap seats for about $70. Pretty good concert value and the band was still great & still closing out with Roundabout! 8)

Notice a lot of stubs from Cobo as in Detroit's Cobo Hall? I saw Mitch Ryder and Bob Seger there which has to be the ultimate Motor City double down.... another great show there was Rockpile opening for Blondie.... good times.
