Wind of Change

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jim Newsom
Peter Frampton's solo debut after leaving Humble Pie as they stood on the brink of stardom spotlights Frampton's well-crafted, though lyrically lightweight, songwriting and his fine guitar playing.

A comparison between this album and Humble Pie's post-Frampton turn to generic boogie-rock shows why Frampton left that group.

With its mix of ballads and upbeat numbers with just enough of a rock edge, Wind of Change showed Frampton at his creative peak. The band here includes Ringo Starr, Billy Preston, and Klaus Voorman.
