I think this was orginally recorded (and patially broadcast ) for the King Biscuit Flower Hour. I had the broadcast reels at one time, and the AWB set was abbreviated (of course). The odd thing about the original broadcast, is they were paired with Kiss. I was more interested in the Kiss part...and I am sure some of the Kiss show made it to Alive 1 with tons of added crowd noise.

Here is a great AWB show from way way back: July 23, 1978.
From the venerable WLIR-FM, this set smokes. I am sorry that I have nothing more to add in terms of lineage, etc ... The original seeder's somments follow below the fold for your reference. Thank you twofthrs!
Here is what I have found about this show:
