6 January 2021

Artist: PETER FRAMPTON
Also played with The Herd (1965-69),
Humple Pie (1969-1975, with Steve Marriott) and played guitar
for George Harrison and David Bowie among others.

Album: PETER FRAMPTON COMES ALIVE!
Released: 6 January 1976 – 45 years ago today
Note: One of the best selling albums ever in America.

AllMusic/Bruce Eder: “At the time of its release, Frampton Comes Alive! was an anomaly,
a multi-million-selling (mid-priced) double LP by an artist who had previously never burned
up the charts with his long-players in any spectacular way. The biggest-selling live album of
all time, it made Peter Frampton a household word and generated a monster hit single in
“Show Me the Way.”
Full review here. Score: 5/5.

Peter Frampton: “I’m very aware that when I kick the bucket, the first paragraph will be,
‘The man responsible for Frampton Comes Alive! just dropped dead. Frampton Drops Dead! after coming alive all these years.'”

TUTV: Frampton showed millions of screaming girls the way.

Sonic knockouts from the past

Natural Born Bugie‘ by HUMBLE PIE
One of the first supergroups with Steve Marriott (from The Small Faces) and
wonder boy Peter Frampton (from The Herd) as the most famous members.
This was their successful debut single on Andrew Oldham‘s (original Rolling
Stones
manager) own label. The cracker hit #4 on the UK singles chart and
later on, the band became even bigger in America. Time to boogie, folks…
