Frampton Comes Alive!

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - David Sprague
It's b-a-a-a-ck! The album that sustained album rock radio for most of the 1970s -- and sent Bic lighter stock through the roof -- has been remade, remodeled, and retooled for release in the new millennium. If you think you've heard it all before, you've got another thing coming. Yes, this version contains all the standards -- "Show Me the Way," "Do You Feel Like I Do," and so on -- but to commemorate the 25th anniversary of his rise from cult figure to arena-filler, Peter Frampton chose to retrofit the multi-platinum set with a passel of tunes dropped from the original release due to time constraints.

Barnes & Noble - David Sprague
It's b-a-a-a-ck! The album that sustained album rock radio for most of the 1970s -- and sent Bic lighter stock through the roof -- has been remade, remodeled, and retooled for release in the new millennium. If you think you've heard it all before, you've got another thing coming. Yes, this version contains all the standards -- "Show Me the Way," "Do You Feel Like I Do," and so on -- but to commemorate the 25th anniversary of his rise from cult figure to arena-filler, Peter Frampton chose to retrofit the multi-platinum set with a passel of tunes dropped from the original release due to time constraints. These previously unreleased tracks run Frampton's stylistic gamut, from a breezy run through the hook-laden "Nowhere's Too Far for My Baby" to the boogie-down guitar choogle of "White Sugar." Three of the four additions stem from the same series of shows that produced the original double album, while the newly unearthed disc closer, "Days Dawning," was recorded live at the famed Record Plant as part of a 1975 radio promotion. Tinkering with a classic is always dangerous -- remember "New Coke"? -- but sometimes the results outweigh the risks.
All Music Guide - 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 name and generated a monster hit single in "Show Me the Way." And the reason why is easy to hear: the Herd/Humble Pie graduate packed one hell of a punch on-stage -- where he was obviously the most comfortable -- and, in fact, the live versions of "Show Me the Way," "Do You Feel Like I Do," "Something's Happening," "Shine On," and other album rock staples are much more inspired, confident, and hard-hitting than the studio versions. [The 1999 reissue in A&M's Remastered Classics series is a considerable improvement over the original double CD or double LP in terms of sound -- the highs are significantly more lustrous, the guitars crunch and soar, and the bottom end really thunders, and so you get a genuine sense of the power of Frampton's live set, at least the heavier parts of his set, rather than the compressed and flat sonic profile of the old double-disc version. Frampton and the band sound significantly closer as well, even on the softer songs such as "Wind of Change," and the disc is impressive listening even a quarter century later. Of course, one must take this all with a grain of salt as a concert document -- as was later revealed, there was considerable studio doctoring of the raw live tapes, a phenomenon that set the stage for such unofficial hybrid works as Bruce Springsteen's Live/1975-85 and countless others.] [This version of the album includes DVD audio and bonus video material.]
