Info for Frampton (Remastered)
Frampton is the fourth studio album by English rock musician Peter Frampton, released in 1975 before he went on tour and recorded Frampton Comes Alive! The most popular songs from the album are "Show Me the Way" and "Baby, I Love Your Way" which became big hits when released as singles from Frampton Comes Alive! The album peaked at #32 on the Billboard 200.
The 1975 album is a fascinating record of what was happening immediately before the English singer-guitarist’s solo career went stratospheric. This was the album that proved to be the breakthrough for Peter Frampton in America. Frampton was released in early March 1975, just before Peter’s 25th birthday, as the fourth solo album by the former member of the Herd and Humble Pie.
Frampton entered the US album chart on 29 March and began a steady climb until it made No. 32, going on to spend over a year on the best seller list, helped in no small part by the release of Frampton Comes Alive in January 1976. Eventually the Frampton album was certified gold by the RIAA for 500,000 shipments on 13 September 1976.
Frampton is a fascinating record of what was happening immediately before the English singer-guitarist’s solo career went stratospheric. The record features the original studio versions of the Comes Alive anthem ‘Show Me The Way’ and the ballad ‘Baby I Love Your Way,’ featured here in a medley with ‘Nassau.’
Recorded in late 1974 and early 1975 at Clearwell Castle in Gloucestershire, using the mobile studio owned by Ronnie Lane of the Faces. Produced by Frampton himself, along with Chris Kimsey, it featured Frampton not only on lead guitar but piano, organ, acoustic guitar, bass on ‘Baby I Love Your Way’ and, of course, what became his trademark talkbox effect on ‘Show Me The Way.’
Now very much his own boss, as a frontman, Frampton wrote every track on the album, which featured his former Herd colleague Andy Bown playing bass, with John Siomos on drums. Peter’s lyrical and melodic playing is prominent throughout, highlights including the pretty ‘One More Time’ and reflective ‘The Crying Clown,’ which features Poli Palmer from Family on vibes. ‘Penny For Your Thoughts’ showed his dexterity for an acoustic instrumental.
Frampton also continued his steady US chart progress since starting his solo career. 1972’s Wind Of Change had reached No. 177 on the Billboard 200, after which Frampton’s Camel peaked at No. 110 in 1973. Then 1974’s Somethin’s Happening did almost as well at No. 125. Buoyed by the Comes Alive phenomenon, Frampton spent 64 weeks on the US chart.

has long been since been a mainstay on the rock scene. He played in such late ‘60s-early ‘70s bands as Herd and Humble Pie, as well as appeared on George Harrison’s classic All Things Must Pass album. Frampton’s debut solo album, Wind of Change (A&M), was released in 1972. Prior to releasing Frampton Comes Alive!, the prolific songwriter had recorded a handful of well-received solo albums, with the gold-selling Frampton reaching #32 on the U.S. charts in 1975. This is the studio recording that yielded the classics, such as “Show Me The Way” and “Do You Feel Like We Do,” that would help drive the enormous success of Frampton’s live opus.
His most recent album, Fingerprints features Frampton having exhilarating musical conversations with a who’s who of the pop world, including Rolling Stones Charlie Watts and Bill Wyman, Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready and Matt Cameron, original Shadows Hank Marvin and Brian Bennett, Allman Brothers/Gov’t Mule slide slinger Warren Haynes, Nashville pedal steel virtuoso Paul Franklin and gypsy guitar maestro John Jorgenson. In addition, Frampton band mate, Gordon Kennedy, who co-wrote many of the originals as well as co-produces the album, is prominently featured as a guitar companion
“This is the album I’ve been waiting my entire life to make,” says Peter Frampton of his remarkable new CD, Fingerprints (A&M/New Door/UME). It’s an impressive 14-tune collection of guitar mastery that crosses several musical borders, from funked-up r&b to razor-edged rockers to rootsy blues to country-flamed beauties to jazzy Django swing to reflective impressionism. And, on the disc, in what may come as a surprise to longtime fans, Frampton begs off singing to focus exclusively on the six-string.
In 2000, Frampton earned a “Best Rock Instrumental Performance” Grammy nomination for Live in Detroit. His last album, 2003’s Now (Framptone/33rd Street Records), prompted the Associated Press to declare: “When it comes to fiery, guitar-drenched rock, Frampton delivers.”
This album contains no booklet.
