Secret is a live album and DVD by the Sons Of Champlin.

By this stage, their founding member and lead guitarist Terry Hagerty had been replaced by Tal Morris who was clearly a keen follower since he has a similar style.
I’ve seen it sold under two album covers:

Live San Rafael 1975 is a live album by The Sons Of Champlin.
If you’re not familiar with the band, the appeared from the San Francisco movement in the second half of the 1960s which gave us bands like Jefferson Airplane and Moby Grape.

This was recorded at the Marin County Civic Center in San Rafael, California from 28th November 1975 and was broadcast on KSAN-FM. There are no interruptions from the radio station DJ but this doesn’t appear to be the entire concert since it starts with a member of the band saying “This next tune we’re going to play…”
