What was it that Peter Frampton brought to Frampton Comes Alive! that audiences had missed on his preceding four solo albums? Whatever it was, he certainly got it right here—on one of the most charismatic and rocking live sets ever captured on tape. The gutsy pop-rock smash "Show Me the Way," the heartfelt power ballad "Baby, I Love Your Way," and the swaggering talkbox-guitar workout "Do You Feel Like We Do" still bring mid-'70s, arena-sized excitement to life.
All I want is do you feel like we do. Why must I have to but the whole entire album.
Frampton Comes Alive - Is Awesome and Live
This is a great album. As far as the "live" comments go - If you will listen to the beginning of Show Me The Way you will hear the guitar faintly at the beginning when he strums the opening four chords, then it is at the proper volume for the rest of the song. The microphone going from his Fender Super Reverb to the recording mixer was not turned up at this concert. The audience did not notice it because this did not affect the "live mix". They did recut this guitar part in the studio so that they could use this otherwise perfect performance. Don't downgrade this album because you are uninformed. This is a masterpiece album by a truly talented musician who has way more talent than all the corporate pop princesses lip-syncing their way across America today. Thank you Peter Frampton, Stanley Sheldon, Bob Mayo, and John Siomos.
This album makes you come alive!
This album was one of the first live albums to set the standard. In 1976, everyone had this album. Trust me, ask someone who was alive at the time. If you close your eyes it'll feel like you're actually there. There is fantastic guitar work throughout and some serious jaw-dropping solos in some of the songs.
Key tracks include:
"Show Me the Way" - A rock radio classic for a good reason. The talkbox is greatly used here and it's all around a great tune.
"Baby I Love Your Way" - Another radio classic. The lyrics are so heartfelt.
"Jumpin' Jack Flash" - My favorite cover of a Stones song. Goes out to past 7 minutes and I love how he incorporates a jam.
Last but not least, "Do You Feel Like We Do" is the magnum opus of this album and all of Peter Frampton's work. Over 14 minutes of pure rock bliss, the progression of the song is unmatched. Every time I listen to it there's always something I didn't notice before. One chord I haven't heard. The whole "live arena rock" experience is captured in this one song. You feel part of the crowd when you hear the roars at the end of the solo. And who could forget the talkbox use here? If you don't get the whole album, just listen to this one song and then you'll be convinced.
