You're not as sophisticated as you think you are!,
This review is from: Frampton Comes Alive! (Audio CD)
Take it from someone who was there at Winterland in 1976, the audience track is not faked! That evening was magical the crowd was definitely in tune with the man and his band, and we were all so blown away by what we were hearing that night it only makes sense that the crowd sounds sweetened to you. The sound engineers did a masterful and up until that time unachieved level of perfection in capturing the real sounds of a live performance. That is why the album sold so well, it does not have the hollow sound of typical live performances. His guitar was ringing loud and clear that night as was his voice. It is such a pleasure to be able to listen to a live perfomance that ranks as one of the best concerts I have ever been to, (and believe me I have been to a lot of them) any time I want to, and be able to relive that very special performance in San Francisco. Thank God they recorded this show!

You were not at anything! I was at Winterland in 1975 at the real concert. The album was released January 1976, so you couldn't have been there.
