Frampton Comes Alive Turns 35

06/28/2011
.
(hennemusic) 2011 marks the 35th Anniversary of one of the most popular live albums of all time: "Frampton Comes Alive". The 1976 double-album sent Peter Frampton's career into the stratosphere, going on to sell more than 6 million copies in the US in its first year alone. Peter had no idea what was coming or how big the record would become.

"We thought audiences were not getting us on record, but they were getting us live," Frampton told Goldmine last year. "So we thought gold, 500,000. It sort of did that the first week. I felt like I was in a jet fighter with the canopy off. It was pretty intense."

Still, Frampton knew there was some magic in the live recording that made up most of "Frampton Comes Alive!" "I remember the [show] at [the] Winterland [Arena in San Francisco]," he says. "I'd say 75 or 80 percent comes from that one night. It was a very special evening, because it was first time I headlined in San Francisco or anywhere. Up to that point, I was opening or in the middle spot." more on this story
