|“Peter Frampton’s double concert album Frampton Comes Alive! in January 1976 was so phenomenally successful,and his resultant fame so widespread,that it is hard to remember a time when he wasn’t. I remember clearly my disappointment when he left Humble Pie, but was impressed that he wasted no time launching a solo career with the tasty 1972 release Wind of Change. Shortly after the release of the follow-up Frampton’s Camel in 1973, I drove several hundred miles during the Arab Oil Embargo to see Peter Frampton open for the Edgar Winter Group in Massillon Ohio’s football stadium . Even with what looked to be about five feet of stage depth allotted and undoubtedly only half of the P.A. afforded to|
the support band , Frampton’s smartly-rehearsed band exhibited the same energy, exuberance, and tightly-arranged hooky songs that would be hallmarks of his record-setting live album three years later.
