Frampton Comes Alive!
I bought the live double album when I was probably 15 or 16. Side one and two were fantastic. Unfortunately, my set had 2 copies of the record with parts 1 and 2 and no 3 and 4. I never bothered to return it since I got it in the mail from Columbia Record Club. I eventually heard all the songs on the album anyway!
Do You Feel Like We do (Midnight Special, 1975)
This first video is Peter Frampton’s performance at Burt Sugarman’s Midnight Special, circa 1975. This is the extended version, unlike many of the other ones out there, with the end missing
Peter Frampton is an English-American rock musician, singer, songwriter, producer, and guitarist. He began his musical career with the bands Humble Pie and The Herd. As a solo artist, Frampton released several albums, including his international breakthrough album, the live release Frampton Comes Alive!. The album sold more than 8 million copies in the United States and spawned several hit singles.
Baby, I love Your Way (Oakland Coliseum Stadium, 1977)
An interesting side note, both Peter Frampton and David Bowie, who was three years older, were students at Bromley Technical School, where Peter’s father, Owen Frampton, was David Bowie’s art instructor
Show Me The Way (Classic, 1976)
Peter Frampton is the artist who made the talkbox famous. The talkbox transfers the guitar’s sound through a plastic tube attached to a microphone. The effect is Frampton’s melodic guitar simulating speech while asking the audience on the live track “Do You Feel Like We Do?” Peter Frampton now sells his own line of custom-designed “Framptone” products, including the talkbox.
I’m In You (Oakland Coliseum Stadium, 1977)
Frampton is best known for such hits as “Breaking All the Rules,” “Show Me the Way,” “Baby, I Love Your Way,” “Do You Feel Like We Do,” and “I’m in You,” which are still well-loved staples on classic rock radio. He has also appeared as himself in television shows such as The Simpsons, Family Guy, and Madam Secretary
Lines On My Face (Oakland Auditorium, 1976)
