Liner Notes

Peter Frampton - lead vocals, guitar; John Siomos - drums; Stanley Sheldon - bass, vocals; Bob Mayo - guitar, keyboard, vocals

During the first track of this four-song mini-set, "Something's Happening," guitarist/vocalist extraordinaire Peter Frampton sings the line, "I know it's my year! Ain't got no fear." He didn't know it at the time, but he was indeed a matter of months from what would unquestionably be the era of Peter Frampton. Within 12 months, the double live LP Frampton Comes Alive! would dominate the FM airwaves and make its way onto millions of record players worldwide.

Introduced from the stage as "The Peter Frampton Band," it was clear from the beginning that the show would be all about Frampton and his exceptional guitar work. The soft-spoken Englishman was promoting his Something's Happening album. The aforementioned opening song was actually called "Baby Something's Happening," but later on, "Baby" was dropped from the title.

Next up, he rips into "It's A Plain Shame," from his 1972 solo debut, Winds Of Change (which featured, among other guests, Ringo Starr on drums and Billy Preston on keyboards). He kicks the band into overdrive next for the rockin' "(I'll Give You) Money," a song that bears the most resemblance to his musical legacy with Humble Pie. The set ends with the 10-minute romp, "Do You Feel Like We Do?" one of the most memorable anthem songs, which has become a staple of Frampton's live show.

After leaving Humble Pie in 1972 shortly after their double LP Rockin' The Fillmore went platinum, Frampton saw marginal success as a solo act. He had to do something soon and turn it into a tangible commercial success, or he ran the risk of being dropped by his label, A&M Records. With Frampton Comes Alive!, he went on to become a mega-superstar. Even though he had artistic and commercial slumps in the mid-1980s and most of the 1990s, he returned at the dawn of the millennium with a new phase of strong albums and memorable tours.

A recent Grammy Award winner (2009's Best Instrumental Rock Recording for his soaring instrumental version of Soundgarden's "Black Hole Sun"), Peter Frampton remains a true rock 'n' roll icon.
