Overview

Thank You Mr Churchill takes Peter Frampton back to the beginning. Literally.

"This album is very autobiographical. It starts with my birth, in which I thank Mr. Churchill for bringing my father back from the Second World War," says Frampton of his new set. "I woke up one morning and I wondered what would have happened if Winston Churchill hadn’t been at the helm and the British and the Allies had not won. Would my dad have not come back? Would I be here? Probably not."

Thank You Mr Churchill is Frampton’s first collection since his innovative Grammy®-winning instrumental album, Fingerprints. "Since Fingerprints, it’s been a very creative period for me," he says. "I wrote over 50 songs between Fingerprints and choosing what will be the 11 on the record. Awards aren’t supposed to enhance one’s creative juices, but they don’t hurt. With the Grammy® I feel validated as the musician that I always felt I’ve been."

Frampton, pairing primarily with Grammy®-winning songwriter Gordon Kennedy, wrote all the songs on the album, revealing sides of himself never before seen.

Throughout Thank You Mr. Churchill, Frampton’s guitar playing is sharp and expressive. Over the course of his 40-plus year career, including his co-formation of super group Humble Pie, Frampton has realized that success isn’t measured in how many albums you sell or how many concert tickets people buy (although in his case, the answer is in the millions), but by an internal barometer.

While no audio recording can compare to Peter Frampton's live performances, this one comes incredibly close. Unlike Fingerprints (which I also love), this CD has only one instrumental track - and that one song puts me in a whole other place. The vocals are spot on, the lyrics are moving, and the song he does with his son Julian is brilliant. I don't think Frampton has ever gotten the credit he so deserves. He is absolutely a guitar god.
