death 531 & 532: A trip to Seattle 1: PROCOL HARUM ‘Snails And Pentagrams’ & SUPERTRAMP ‘LIVE’

Supertramp Live 2

Reversing the name listed for production yields john w., with the ‘w’ likely representing ‘Wizardo’.

About 50 copies were pressed on blue PVC (100 on black):

Made in Southern California, 1977

Matrix variations: 75321-A / – B  or  WRMB 532-A / WRMB 532-B


Date & Venue: April 20 ’77 – Seattle Arena [is this the same venue as the Seattle Center Coliseum, now known as KeyArena?]

Two photos of the band on stage two days later in Vancouver can be seen here:

Supertramp 77

The above poster was for the Portland, OR show at the Paramount Theater on April 17 ’77. Now the insert below for what is supposed to be the Seattle recording says “Paramount” also, someone must have gotten confused.

Supertramp Live Death

A few copies got out undetected that have a different matrix on side 2: W 532B and play four Who songs: A Quick One, Easy Goin’ Guy, Shakin All Over and Boris The Spider

Also the usual limited run on K&S:

Supertramp Live K&S 2

The Death/K&S LP has:

Side 1: Dreamer / Rudy (Gs) / Fools Overture
Side 2: Lady / Crime Of The Century


Described as “Vgs”. My issue is that I have looked at every surviving recorded fragment from this tour and “Rudy” was never played or captured at any other time and it is singled out here for worse quality. Could it be from a different source and year (it was part of their 1976 shows)?

    The “Seattle Center Arena” (Also known as the “Mercer Arena”) is not the same as the Coliseum. The Area was built in 1910s where as the Coliseum was built for the 62 world’s fair. It is a large open venue with a concert capacilty of about 8,000. Was last used for the ABL’s Seattle Reign (the first women’s basketball league).
