Steal Your Face is a live album by the Grateful Dead.
It was recorded during their farewell tour at the Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco between October 16 and October 20, 1974.
The band had been pioneering a new sound system (known as the wall of sound) but it made touring harder than before because of the more complicated set-up when they changed venues.
These concerts also provided the source for The Grateful Dead Movie Soundtrack which has been much better received.

Thirty Seconds Over Winterland is a live album by Jefferson Airplane.
Despite its title, it was recorded at two venues:
- Chicago Auditorium in Chicago at the concerts on August 24 and 25, 1972
- Winterland Arena, San Francisco on September 21 and 22, 1972
It was released in 1973 as a seven track single album. Since it has been issued on CD, another five tracks have been added.
The concerts at the Winterland turned out to be the last live performances by Jefferson Airplan until they reunited in 1989.
By this stage, Jefferson Airplane had moved away from their psychedelic rock of the late 1960s to a more commercial sound, paving the way for the transition into Jefferson Starship.

Van Morrison at the Winterland Feb 2, 1974 isn’t a live album but a live recording you can hear through Wolfgang’s Vault of Van Morrison performing in San Francisco in 1974.
At the moment you can only listen rather than download. I hope Van Morrison gives permission for the rights to be extended because this is a lovely performance.

Closing of Winterland: December 31 1978 is a live album by the Grateful Dead. This was the last rock concert at San Francisco’s Winterland Arena and was released in 2003.
The venue had been the band’s spiritual home after the closure of the smaller Fillmore West and it was fitting that the Dead were the last band to play at the venue which was home to The Last Waltz.
The gig went on for so long that breakfast was served to the crowd at dawn.
