Three dog night captured live at the forum


Captured Live at the Forum is the third album by American rock band Three Dog Night, released in 1969 (see 1969 in music).

Contents

The album was recorded at The Forum in Los Angeles, CA. Original pressings of the album bore the headline "In front of an audience over 18,000 on September 12, 1969 in Los Angeles, Three Dog Night was Captured Live at the Forum." Future pressings would remove the 12 September date, however, and lead singer Chuck Negron's autobiography Three Dog Nightmare would subsequently list the concert's performance date as 14 July 1969.

According to Three Dog Nightmare, Three Dog Night opened this show in support of Steppenwolf, who were recording various shows on their 1969-70 tour for an upcoming live album (Steppenwolf Live, released 1970). Steppenwolf and Three Dog Night both recorded for the ABC/Dunhill label and shared the same production team, so it was decided to record Three Dog Night on this occasion as well, despite the band's having only released two albums to date. The choice was a fruitful one, as Captured Live at the Forum reached #6 on the Billboard album chart.

All the songs featured on Captured Live at the Forum were previously issued in studio versions by Three Dog Night; specifically, "Feelin' Alright", "Eli's Coming", and "Easy to Be Hard" were included on the band's second album Suitable for Framing, and the remainder on their eponymous first album.
