This was released during the great live album era of the mid to late 's. Live albums would bring excellent acts such as Bob Seger, Little Feat, and Cheap Trick to the next level and this live album made Peter Frampton a superstar. And this still holds up. You know why? Peter was still is a great songwriter and more importantly, he was one with his audience. He wrote great songs but the passion didn't show on the studio recordings.
Here the passion shines through. Peter was a craftsman and a showman. His live shows even today and I've seen him recently still feel bigger than just a concert. What is worth noting and not often acknowledged is that Peter had an excellent band that accompanied him perfectly. He knew he had a top notch band and he made sure they were heard. As for the songs, all of them are great. No doubt about it. The singles released were the perfect choices.
You still hear them all the time. And last but not least: Peter can play guitar as well as he can sing and write. He remains a fantastic and underrated player who has a very distinctive tone with or without his talk box. Want to know why the classic rockers from the '70s still bring the crowds all these years later? Look no further. (Ill Give You) Money - Peter Frampton - Frampton Comes Alive!
(Vinyl disclosure: I bought this in on cassette as a 19 year old restless music lover. Listened to it regularly until the wear and tear kicked in and bought the CD last year. I love it as much now as I did then. Replacing another vinyl album with a digital copy I still was missing from my MP3 collection. How could I be so remiss?
One of the most influential albums of the mid 70s, for years you couldn't go anywhere without hearing one of the main tracks. But this album goes a lot deeper than that I broke out in the same smile reserved for long lost friends when I heard Doobie Wah and the cover of Jumping Jack Flash for the first times in like 25 years. Such an amazing guitarist, it was good to see him get his career back on track with the recently released album.
Shows his skills haven't missed a beat in 40 years. If you have just become acquainted with his work from the latest album, you definitely need to get this and listen, to see why Frampton was one of the most impossible tickets to get back in the day. Needs a good sound system for full potential Frampton's best known effort from an era long past. Sounds great loud and with a great sound system; definitely an album that you'll want to sit down and do nothing else but listen to.
As with something like Deep Purple's "Machine Head" or Black Sabbath's "Paranoid", I can't imagine someone buying this who's never heard it countless times before, but what do I know.
Get the album format if you can at your local thrift store for the inside fold images. Throw your 8 track copies away.
See all reviews from the United States. Top international reviews. Nostalgia can be a wonderful thing, but on occasion the rose-tinted memories from afar can blur the reality a little. I'd only ever come across brief snippets of this album many years ago, and recalled I was pretty impressed with what I heard at the time. Lizzy's scorcher remains the definitive soundtrack of that summer, though I still have a soft spot for the other.
Emboldened with confidence Album) listening to all the hype surrounding this 'classic' album, I finally got around to ordering a copy, after seeing the 25th anniversary deluxe edition being offered at a very tempting bargain price that I couldn't resist after delaying for all these years.
How I wish I hadn't bothered - what a disappointment! A great pity, as the sound quality on this release is actually very good. What is this music actually supposed to be? Rock, pop, ballad, or a tepid easy-listening hybrid of all 3? Either way, aside from the odd pleasant Frampton guitar lick, there's barely enough interesting material here to fill a 45 single, never mind a double album.
I can honestly say that I (Ill Give You) Money - Peter Frampton - Frampton Comes Alive! (Vinyl to stay awake through it. Mystifying how this album has acquired it's exalted status down the years. Believe me, there's plenty of far better stuff out there from the same era. Thank you for your feedback. Sorry, we failed to record your vote. Please try again.

All right, (Ill Give You) Money - Peter Frampton - Frampton Comes Alive! (Vinyl comes a bit of weirdness. According to the Autorip album, I should have 14 tracks, but what I actually have is a two-album CD set under the same title, the first having 11 songs; the second, having 8, giving me 19 live Frampton tracks altogether.
Two very impressive long tracks, one just under 14 minutes long: Do You Feel Like We Do, and the other is just under 12 minutes: a second version of Do You Feel Like We do - both of these are on the second album. Now I have to check through the whole song listing to see if everything on the original album is there! It's a beautiful sound on my Wharfedale D9 speakers.
My Album) can hold four speakers, so when I get the second pair, I know I'll be delighted to hear this album again with the sound upgrade. It's unmistakeably Frampton and an album I'd heard so much about when I was a kid. Now I finally have the pleasure of hearing it for the first time at the age of almost 52 and, so far, I'm loving it!
Highly recommended! Better late than never, only just bought this album and I was not disappointed. Pepper Lonely Hearts Club movie with the thud! Bee Gees. But it was all too obvious the force vividly portrayed on the live album was running on fumes. A car crash in the Bahamas in almost sidelined the guitarist for good. At the time, it seemed like the ultimate blow to such a surging talent. Peter Frampton could have very well become a has-been of the ever-ready 70s, Album).
But he refused to fade away. Through the 80s, 90s and into the 21st century, Frampton continues to tour and record.
