Can confirm he was alive
It's a solid live album, it has a couple of songs I began to remember from my childhood as I heard them. Yes, it's not anything out of the ordinary and I don't think it "brought anything new to the table" back then, but I also don't think it meant to. It's just an "inoffensive" pleasant album (with a pretty unfortunate Stones cover, I have to say)
Loved that it was recorded at Winterland in San Francisco! Also do you feel like i feel is so insanely epic
I didn't realise how many Peter Frampton songs I knew. Plus this is a terrific recording.
Great live album. Vast majority of this album playa on radio already. Good songwriter, connects with the audience and he sounds like he is having fun at this show in SF. Frampton understands his craft and changes the gimmick of his voice box into more than that. He doesn't overuse it, but it becomes part of his toolbox.
Fantastic album. I haven't listened to it before, but I'm sure I'll be listening again sometime. 3RS
"Man, that guys guitar is talking." "Hey, my shoes are talking too." "Don't worry, we wont hurt you, we only want to have some fun."
Despite living in the suburbs, I was never issued a copy of Frampton Comes Alive. That’s not to say I’m unfamiliar with it, though. Even if you’ve never heard the record, the chances you haven’t heard “Show Me the Way” or “Baby, I Love Your Way” are slimmer than Peter Frampton’s Bell bottoms. You know who probably did get a copy of this record in the mail back in 1976? Trey and the boys from Phish. A lot of this record has a kind of proto-Phish jammy-ness to it, except not as weird and played competently. (Look, I’ve got a thousand and one records to listen to, it was inevitable that I’d eventually talk a little smack on Phish) About a decade ago, while in Colorado for business, I took an afternoon and visited Red Rocks Amphitheatre. I had only intended on touring the venue, just to see in person how awesome it is. Even if you’re not going there for a concert, it is worth visiting. Absolutely beautiful. What I didn’t know when I arrived, was that Peter Frampton was playing that night and I would be walking around the venue while he and the band sound checked. I’m not a Peter Frampton fan by any stretch, but hearing his talk box reverberate off the giant slabs of prehistoric rock is one of the coolest “concert” experiences I’ve ever had. It sounded amazing. …and for that, Peter Frampton is cool with me.
The guitar is impressive on this album. It's no use having great guitar if the songs are kind of boring though.
Sounds like something you'd play in a truck if you only had one record to hand
just fuck off. 70s shite and to top it off its LIVE. crowds going woo through a completely unrecognisable song just somehow makes it worse. its the least amount of an album i;ve managed to listen to for a long time.
Truly excellent live album, the crowd is really into the vocoder thing that Frampton uses, and it sounds cool! Some of quintessential Frampton tracks are on here!
This album is such a wonderful trip for me on two levels. First, on the nostalgia front, it brings me back to summers of my youth when these songs played on the radio and the energy was fantastic. Next, for me as a present-day listener, I hear and appreciate the music in a whole new way. The songs are a lot fun, they hold up well in the harsh light of time's passing, and I am blown away by the musicians, all of them. Bob Mayo's keys are on another level. I could listen to his keyboard solo on 'Do You Feel Like We Do' go on for hours. And Frampton's guitar playing...wow. Growing up, I somehow missed his being on the level of the other rock guitar gods I adored. I know now. Related Note: I recently discovered an album he recorded just a couple years ago, 'All Blues,' which is outstanding. He's still a true artist on the guitar. Back to this album: Yes, definitely one of the all-time greats. If the only song on it were 'Do You Feel Like We Do,' I'd still believe it's worthy of this list. Final Note: fans of Peter Frampton should see Rick Beato's "What Makes This Song Great?" episode on 'Do You Feel Like We Do' as well as the few other Peter Frampton-focused videos on Rick Beato's YouTube channel. Absolute worth watching.
I'm having another ohhhhhhhhhh-I-get-it-now moment. I've heard bits of this my whole life but never sat through the whole thing and kind of didn't think I'd like it that much. I listened to the 35th Anniversary Deluxe Edition, 1 hour and 46 minutes of music that I didn't want to end. Frampton's musicianship is astounding --- there's plenty of impressively spoodly electric guitar solos but then there's some lovely acoustic technique in Penny for your Thoughts and All I Wanna Be. And his voice! Smooth and lovely throughout, lots of variation. None of the fatigue or pitch problems you can sometimes hear in live recordings. I think of Frampton as a great guitarist but he can really really sing and he seems to be an incredible showman. In addition to the singles I was familiar with, I fell in love with several of these songs during this listen: Wind of Change, All I Wanna Be, I Wanna Go to the Sun, Shine On, and White Sugar. I didn't really love the cover of Jumpin' Jack Flash --- it just didn't seem to have teeth for some reason --- but I have renewed appreciation for Do You Feel Like We Do, all 14 minutes of it. So great!
This was really good. The talk box lives rent free in my head
hmm... never heard of him. (kidding, of course this is a classic)
One of the greatest live guitar albums ever.
really cool I sure would’ve had fun seeing this live 9/10
One of the greatest live albums of all time. I loved everything about this album. Frampton is one of the all time guitar greats.
Just a good fuckin album
I discovered this album as a young girl and was obsessed with it. Amazing or am I just reminiscing? It's still yhe only LIVE album that I can listen to.
wow! what an album! I knew Peter Frampton by name (and of course I know the absolute banger that is Baby, I love your way). But I didn't realize how much I would love his work. Especially as a Live album which is even more impressive. Jammed out the full 14 minutes of Do You Feel Like We Do. Lines On My Face, Jumping Jack Flash, (I'll Give You) Money, I Wanna Go To The Sun, and of course Show Me The Way were all standouts.
"If ever an album title was in dire need of an exclamation mark It surely had to be Frampton Comes Alive!" ("Third Track Main Camera Four Minutes" by Half Man Half Biscuit. 2000) I saw Frampton support Deep Purple in 2004, and he was just as good as you would expect. This album is an absolute belter! One of the easiest 5's I'll give.
I honestly didn’t thought I’d give it a five stars but truth is, I really liked listening to this album. It has the energy of a great live album, and even though I didn’t know that much songs, I stayed hooked on my first listening ! The audience is on fire. Surprised also by the quality of Frampton’s guitar play, there’s some killer licks and solo. Of course the last track “Do you feel like we do”is a definite banger and Frampton makes good uses of talkbox. Anyway a fine discovery and definitely among my favourite live albums.
I owned this album on a twin cassette pack and played it until is was stuffed, great album.
Another much loved album I have in numerous media, LP, cassette, RTR, digital, etc. I have it on both the HD in my car as well as on an iPod that often travels with me.
nice . i liked it
Nice live album. Will give this a few more listens. "Baby I love your way" as the biggest hit.
Great live album.
This record slaps so hard.
Rock n Roll |,,,| Funky, rocky, everything I'd want out of a live gig. Would have sounded cooler being there though
I've never really gotten into Peter Frampton, but this album was a fucking phenomenal live album! obviously it had a lot of top hits, but songs like "It's A Plain Shame" and "Shine On" were some songs i've never heard before but dug them!
Great live album. Although - to be honest - I found it somewhat underwhelming overall this time around.
Un disc que justifica una carrera. Cap més artista em ve al cap que tingui un doble en directe tan (merescudament) mític i en canvi cap dels discos en estudi estigui, ni de lluny, a l'alçada. Sigui com sigui, un disc a disfrutar al llarg de tota una vida
I kinda liked this, should listen to more. Easy-listening but catchy.
Excellente surprise !
Baby, I love your way e Show me the way sao continuacoes uma da outra na minha cabeca (e ambas excelentes).
I don't think I'm smart enough for this album. The lyrics are basically poetry and the rhythms go way past standard 4/4. Due to Nick Drake being such a loner, he had no one else playing on this work, but he could have been huge if he could have collaborated with others. It's also why I can't rate it highly. Sure, pink moon is good and technically it is all good, but this is a 3.5 or a 7 out of 10. It just needs more and I don't think he had written his opus before he died. This was just a taste.
Coming to realize I get tired of people who belt all their vocals. If everything’s at 11, nothing’s interesting and the brain just gets bored. It’s a shame because the guitar work is amazing
Love it. Really great live album and makes me wanna listen to more of Frampton’s stuff.
A real gem of a live album. Foot tapping, energetic, engaging.
Phenomenal musicality. Was expecting more ear worms. But definitely an album if you want something funky and crowd-pleasing that's upbeat but not overbearing.
a classic. 70s rock for sure.
I liked it, good stuff. I've always heard of Peter Frampton but never listened. "Baby, I Love Your Way", along with a few other songs, were very familiar.
Classic live album. Not my personal favorite, but a very significant album culturally
Definitely a high school hit album!!! I wore out the 8 track !!
Strong 4 stars. First disc - great. I had no idea that “show me the way” and “baby I love your way” were from this live album. Second disc - good. A lot of energy but I’m worn out by jumpin jack flash.
I've listened to this album many times, but probably not since the early 80s when my sister moved out of our house and took her album collection with her. Live albums aren't usually my jam as I generally prefer the cleaner sound of a studio recording. The crowd and background sounds are often distracting to me . Was that sound at the 0:55 mark in Wind of Change the sound of - a gunshot? balloon popping...? I quite enjoyed listening to this album though. It is well recorded and I enjoyed the 70s arena rock vibe. Even the 14 minutes of "Do You Feel Like We Do" didn't wear on me. Frampton's songs are solid 70s rock and he knows how to deliver them live. FRAMPTON COMES ALIVE! is easy to like as the big hits I am familiar with were actually from this album. There is an intensity Frampton's live performance brings that explains why this is one of the greatest live rock recordings.
That was fun! Penny for Your Thoughts made me so happy!
Better than I thought
Good 70’s album rock - I like the guitars and several of the songs. Easy to listen to.
Very fun live album. Some obvious hits Ive heard a lot but enjoyed the whole thing
Great live album.
4/5. Why’d he have to put “it’s a plain shame” on there? Coulda been next level
Just an extremely tight set. After reviewing Bob Dylan's "At Royal Albert Hall" immediately before this, this is a breath of fresh air. The crowd is super into it, and Frampton brings across a super bubbly, buoyant, and fun set. It doesn't break the mold or anything, just wonderful rock n' roll. Favorite tracks: "Show Me the Way", "All I Want to Be", "Baby, I Love Your Way"
Haven’t listened to this in a long time.
Amazing album from an icon of R&B
Who doesn't have a specific memory or two about this album (if you are of the age). But a bit lackluster beyond the hits. "Tell me you or someone you know didn't have this album" Peter Griffin
This was actually unexpectedly great for me. Was catching myself head-bopping multiple times.
Pretty dope album. Although outside of the 'hits' it doesn't make much of an impression. But the high points are very very high. Capping it off with 'Do You Feel Like We Do' is fantastic. 7/10
It is a great record filled with anthemic songs to sing out loud, at least that’s what you can tell by the people in that concert. In my case, I think I may need to listen to those songs often to let them grow on me.
Not bad. I mostly just liked the hits that everyone has heard a million times but those were all very good. Giving this 4 stars but it's a low 4.
Already listened to it
Easygoing road trip rock. An easy 4/5 from "Baby, I Love Your Way" alone. gotta love the energy from the crowd too
I really enjoy live albums and this one did not disappoint. Some classics that I already knew and found some new songs to love. Favourite songs: Show me the way, Baby I love your way, Do you feel like we do
A classic live album.
Enjoyable live album that is full of typical classic rock music and also boasts a few "classics" that everybody has heard of or heard before. Being a live album it is rather long of course but overall still a good experience
A great live performance demonstrating not just his soft rock specialties but his superb guitar playing proficiency.
I understand that this live album was Frampton's breakthrough, but I really don't understand why some people prefer to hear live recordings over studio recordings. It's simply the inferior version to me. That said, even though I'd wish these were the same songs but in studio quality, I really like Peter Frampton and enjoyed listening to this album. While the studio versions might be 4.5 stars to me, this is still 3.5 stars. Rounding up because most other albums from last week were a lot worse than this one.
Лирическая и спокойная музыка
Sick guitar solos but some of the lyrics were really really weird. Would listen to again.
great live album. the talking pig made me want to learn to play the guitar when i was growing up.
Frampton Comes Alive has always intrigued me by the fact that the live versions of these (great) songs are the defacto versions....you never hear the studio versions anywhere. I need to go back and listen to the studio versions just to compare, but the album (and the use of the talk box) is great. Would have been a great show to see back in the day. 4/5
If I hadn't listened to this live album, I would have rated it much lower. However, listening to this album live, I understood Frampton as an artist and why he's so loved. "Do You Feel Like We Do" is 14 minutes of the guitar having its shine and let's also talk about "Jumping Jack Flash" which was a fun song to get just a glimpse of what it was like to see Frampton live. Thanks to the generator for letting me finally hear Peter Frampton and actually enjoy it. Standout songs: All I Want To Be (Is By Your Side), Jumping Jack Flash, Do You Feel Like We Do, Shine On.
Not bad dad rock
Pretty electrifying as far as live albums go
Fuera de la que pasaban siempre en Universal, no conocía más rolas aunque la portada del disco sí. De hecho me parecía rara porque la cara del tipo no me cuadra del todo con la música y la guitarra que toca. De cualquier manera, me parece un buen disco en vivo, especialmente considerando la guitarra que él toca. Y aunque la rola más famosa es medio de hueva, la verdad es que otras del disco le hacen justicia. Por otro lado, de Frampton no conozco nada nada nada más. Ni siquiera estaba seguro si tal vez era exmiembro de otra banda o algo así y resulta que no, que todo su éxito fue como solista y que sigue vivo y sacando cosas.
It has been more than 40 years since I put this album on a turntable and set back to listen to it. When it was released it was everywhere and Do You Feel Like I Do was the anthem that defined the year it was released. Well this was a very enjoyable stroll down memory lane. The songs hold up very very well, (Helped by the fact that the vinyl copy I have is almost dead quiet and sounds awesome. Tyîcal of A & M releases back in the day. There are a couple duds....Jumping Jack Flash is totally unnecessary and uninspired but the hilights are very high and Frampton's guitar playing always tasteful...something I appreciate more now than I did then. This is a fince 70s live album that has stood the test of time. 4.5 stars
Doobie Wah is fun and smooth. Fairly enjoyable.
Good classic rock album, but considering its a live album its pretty amazing. sometimes I forgot it was live until I heard the crowd cheering again.
I wouldn't regret going to the concert. 3.5
Ground-breaking. Electrifying. A great party.
Definitely a product of its time that still holds up. This album was beyond huge when it was released, ruling the charts for almost 2 years. Fun fact: I got to see Peter Frampton open for Steve Miller in 2018. Frampton covered "Black Hole Sun" by Soundgarden in a huge tribute to Chris Cornell, and of course played the three big hits from this album. It should have been the other way around. Steve Miller should have been opening up for the legendary Peter Frampton.
Kolejny zywy album, dodatkowo lekkie deja vu, bo niby na liscie nie bylo jeszcze pana Framptona, to czuje sie jakbym juz tego sluchal, ale jakos w pozytywnym znaczeniu, bo wedlug last fma z dyskografii framptona przerobilem jedynie debiutancki wind of change i krazek zatytulowany frampton, ktory akurat poprzedza dzisiejszy pick, wiec sporo z tamtej plyty mozna uslyszec tutaj, stad pewnie to uczucie, tak czy inaczej solidny odsluch, bo prawie 80 minut porzadnego arenowego rockowania, tak jak wczoraj bylo granie barowe tak dzisiaj jest cos z wieksza iloscia publicznosci, nie bede sie rozpisywal, bo wydaje mi sie jakbym juz kiedys to robil, az tak ulozone mam w glowie zdanie o muzyce tego pana, ktory jest nie tylko utalentowanym multiinstrumentalista, ktory na tym nagraniu uzywa glownie gitary, ale jest takze charyzmatyczna persona w swiecie rocka
Rating: 7/10 Best songs: Show me the way, Baby,I love your way
Aangenaam live-album. Duidelijk een steengoede muzikant die het publiek mee krijgt
A good ole time.
You know what? I was into this. Solid rock, very entertaining.
Mola, pero se hace largo.
Some really great moments. "Jumping Jack Flash" for blues, "Baby I Love Your Way" for pop/rock. Much of it though is a bit too down the middle to make a stronger statement. The album also suffers the same fate as so many live albums. If you were there, the feelings are intensified. If you weren't (like virtually all listeners younger than 60), it's just a standard classic rock album with inferior recording and extra long vamps. Do you feel like I feel?
fun but this sure was the live versions
Amazing energy as a guitarist and performer. The demonstration he needed to show the strength of the songs in longer and less inhibited format.
A fun listen!
Great live album
1976 was a weird place, musically; disco was tightening its grip, punk was an inconceivable thought, hip-hop was still in its nascent phase and the lone rock representative to conquer the world was a guitar player with dashing good looks that, after many trials and errors, gave us an album that was a greatest hits album in live performance mode. It had to be Peter, for Frampton Comes Alive! is the perfect capsule into who and what he stands for as a musician. Deep cuts and pop gems combine to make a tantalizing package that leaves little to the imagination when it came to its slow but eventual dominance. Favorites: Doobie Wah, Show Me the Way, It's a Plain Shame, All I Want to Be (Is By Your Side), Baby, I Love Your Way, I Wanna Go to the Sun, (I'll Give You) Money, Do You Feel Like We Do.
Pretty classic album. I remember when this was the biggest album on planet Earth. 4/5
Very electric live album!
A very good live album, with crowd energy helping it out. Lots of fun listening to this one.
There’s a reason this record was massive when it came out: it’s just a great live rock record. Frampton has a great voice and certainly can craft a well put together song. And that talk box 😄!
My 17 year old self would give this 5 stars for sure, I loved this album at one time. However I don't have the same affinity I once did. It's very good but great.
This is an evergreen album. Glad to listen it every time!
Something Jeremy Clarkson would listen too
The talk box is fun and this dude really loves Da whey. Wasn’t this like the most sold album of the decade or some shit?
For a live album, it's an excellent one. Some great guitar playing. Last track is a belter.
A good live album that captures the time and the talent of Frampton
pretty solid but really didn't like that they were all live versions 3/5
Fantastic Guitar playing saves this album from the mediocre singing however the song baby I love your way remains a timeless classic.
Famous album with some great songs but as a whole, doesn’t live up to the hype
Lots of classic songs
A nice live album of a nice singer. Some songs were well known but overall it was nice to listen to this 1976 live album.
Enjoyable for a live album. Can understand why it was so popular.
helt ok representation av några av hans låtar
The definition of classic.
Classic rock is classic. This one felt a bit hollow by the end, though I can see the “live” appeal.
I got this album after they referenced it in High Fidelity. I imagine people's views on the album change on whether they grew up hearing it all the time or not. As someone who didn't, I enjoyed it. Not a masterpiece, but a lot of solid songs.
"I wonder how you're feeling There's ringing in my ears And no one to relate to 'cept the sea" (Show me the way) No me interesa especialmente Peter Frampton pero esta portada vive de gratis en mi cabeza.
An upbeat, fun and energetic album. Catchy, good natured rock n roll. I don't like hearing the fans on the front stage literally losing their minds, but otherwise I liked pretty much all of it. Really liked "(I'll Give You) Money" and "Baby I Love Your Way".
Not bad. Decent.
More 70s, all fine but of another era
Очень скучная хрень. Всё вроде бы понятно, местами приятно, но очень скучно. И ещё не понятно, в чём тут прикол лайва. В случае с Нилом Янгом это звучало хотя бы чисто, интересно и красиво. А тут же будто типикал лайв роцк-альбом, склёпанный для фанатов. Но нет, эта запись ещё и лучше студийников оценена (или так же)! В принципе, даю отчёт, то если услышу в дороге, головой покиваю, но ныне не пропёрся.
ну, норм на самом деле, но мне че-то в настроение не зашло. При этом первую песню всё равно высоко довольно оценил, балдёжный припев. Остальное ну так, но послушать можно, есть какие-то интересные места, которые отличают этого Фрэмптона от банальных роцкенрольщиков. Правда, то что это двойной живой альбом — серьёзный блять минус, ибо ну невыносимо иногда такую длину больше одного раза прогнать. Но при этом свой шарм тоже даёт — пару раз в голос угорал с того как на записи люди верещат после каждой ноты, начинают кашлять, уходить, кто-то крикнул «хуй!» на 49 минуте альбоме... не, не крикнул, можете не слушать, не проверять. ну 6, короче
ok, l guess. I know the songs and his playing just wouldn't go see him unless the tickets were free.
Baby, I Love Your Way é dele, não sabia. É bom o álbum, mas não prendeu minha atenção.
3.25 because it was recorded in SF. It's fine, a couple classic rock hits but nothing in my particular slice of rock.
It was goodish. I liked baby I love your way. Nothing else stood out
Ehh. Not outstanding to me.
Meh. Live albums are not great at best. This is one of them
Solid rock and roll; enough to keep you interested and listening, but not enough to make you want to come back and listen to it again and again.
I believe the only reason why this album is included on the list is because it sold like hot cakes in the 70s. One of the best selling live albums of all times. But personally I don't see the hype. It's decent classic rock. It has three classic radio staples, including a 14 minute "Do you feel like we do". I think it's the longest song I have liked on Spotify, so that says something about how bearable it is. The live audience helps keep that and many other songs stay alive, which helps get through the sheer length of the album. Many of the tracks are just bad or boring, and I didn't even realize there was a Rolling Stones cover because of how generic it sounded like the others. However, besides the radio staples, there are several songs I like (e.g. Doobie Wah), and this live album does demonstrate Frampton's talent better than any of his studio albums do.
Rock die ik niet zo bijzonder vind
August 30, 2021 This is pretty meh? Nothing to write home about but it's fine. Also too long. Didn't love the Stones cover.
This is p cool, bit of 70s rock. I've never actually listened to Peter Frampton before but I know he's considered one of the greats. I still dunno how I feel about live albums on the list, and it IS a bit of a stretch at 78min of music I've never heard before (except baby I love your way), and this felt like it was really hammered home when the last track ended up being an extended jam, but this is still a 3/5 overall.
Reminds me that I need to buy more anti dandruff shampoo this weekend.
I recognize the Baby I love Your Way song from the Jumanji movie with The Rock, (ha). Solid smooth rock album thus far. That being said....at some point rock starts to blur and sound all the same to me, lol sorry.
A bit bland , and it gets boring towards the middle , but overall a godd album 3/5
Schlocky, but sometimes fun. "Do You Feel Like We Do?" may have sounded thrilling in 1976 but now it's a little indulgent.
It's good! Some solid 70s rock. I'm not really a fan of live albums (I think I'm just too young to appreciate them), but I'm glad I listened to it.
Heard of this one, but had never listened to it before. A decent live album, though I’m not sure why it was as popular as it was.
I know I've listened to this a few times. The fact that I never bought it during my CD buying heyday doesn't particularly bode well? Something's Happening is a decent song that gets really good when the singing stops and he plays that guitar which is still pretty impressive. There's a bunch of acoustic songs here that are a real snooze. We're here for ONE reason Pete, and that's to hear you make teh guitar talk kinda... Baby, I love Your Way is a shitty song, but I don't hate it because I associate it with that scene in High Fidelity. I like crowd noise on live albums, but I gotta admit, Penny For Your Thoughts woudl be better without some dumbshit going "YOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWW!" every 15 seconds Another song started and I was about to be liek "jesus, now he's ripping off the Stones!" but then he started singing and it's a cover of Jumpin jack Flash. (not a particularly great one? But it's a pretty great song and the guitar solo is good so it's all good) I was sort of negative leaning going in and many of my comments maybe sound like I didn't like it, but there wasn't anything I outright DISliked and there area few things that I really enjoyed. As stupid and cliche as it is? It's really fuckign awesonme when he makes his guitar go OOOOOOOOOUUUUUUEEEEEEEAAAAAAAHHHHLLLLAAAAAAAAKKKKEEEEEDOOOO
it was good
Great guitar solos, great vibe. Bit long though. Obviously the famous tracks are the stand-outs.
There's absolutely nothing like the feeling of live music, but I've never been a fan of live albums. They don't give you the feel of being there, they don't sound as good as a studio album, and every flaw or random noise is annoyingly repeated every time you listen. This one, however, is justifiably at the top of live albums. "Do You Feel Like We Do" does make me wish I were there, and probably gives the best feel of a live event. And the talk box (along with the crowd reaction to it) is still, very, very cool. It was my favorite part of the album and I enjoyed the full 14 minutes. The other singles from the album are classics, but have never been favorites of mine. Beyond that, it was an hour of similar, well-performed stuff.
I listened to this a couple weeks ago and forgot about it completely. Thought I had rated it but I guess I didn't. Giving it a 3 which seems charitable for a record that doesn't ring a bell...
Does a great job at highlighting Frampton, unfortunately for me thats only meh. Some are good but an album full is a bit much
Honestly I found most of the record kind of boring, but the last 3 songs really bumped it up to a solid 3, particularly the closer. I see why that blew people’s minds in the mid 70s.
Et live album, som lyder godt. Men havde nok været bedre hvis man kendte musikken.
Predugačko, još je uživo, ali nije to toliko ni loše koliko sam mislio. Dosadnjikavo u neku ruku, da, al što ide dalje je bolje. Btw. Ako slučajno napišeš pjesmu koja nosi naziv Wind of Change, i ne bude dobra, kupi prnje! U ovom slučaju ovdje je ta pjesma najbolja. Baby I Love Your Way je čak poznata, ne znam otkle mi, garant neki film, il neki vrag, isto nije loša te se dobrima pridružuju još I Wanna go to the Sun i divan instrumental Penny For Your Thoughts. Ovo ostalo je oke.
The blond bombshell dropped this massive album and lost all of his guitar god chops in the process. Everyone's parents will have owned this at one point - whether that's a good or bad thing will be argued forever. Best Tracks: Show Me The Way; Baby I Love Your Way; Do You Feel Like We Do
Otro disco que aunque agradable de oír me hace preguntarme qué hace aquí. Hay mejores discos de rock, hay mejores discos en directo y hay probablemente mejores discos de Peter Frampton que este. Trascendencia: 4? Personal: 6 Género: 5
Seems like some decent, solid dad-rock but over an hour for a live album was too much for me.
It was enjoyable, but still a generic live album. I really have nothing else to say about it.
I can't say I get Peter Frampton, maybe it's just not my thing. Nothing here is bad but I really don't care about it at all, so I'm wavering between a 2 and a 3, but I'll round up for "talent" I suppose.
This being a live album biases me against it, but it has some good qualities. I think the quieter, more spare songs help give the album some relief, and you can hear in those songs the crowd's respect. The talk box stuff is fun. The Jumping Jack Flash cover is bad. The guitar work is pleasing, very skillful in the more uptempo songs. Mixed bag.
Another one that I enjoyed more than I expected. Not something I'd seek out, but it's a nice album.
This is a classic live album, and great fun to listen to. It showcases Peter Frampton's talents better than any of his studio albums at the time could. He really is an excellent guitarist and he's so likeable, you can't help but be in a good mood listening to these songs. The quality of individual songs is somewhat uneven, with some absolute classics mixed in with other songs that are well-played, but ultimately unmemorable. "Show Me the Way" is just lovely, and something I will gladly listen to every day forever. Fave Songs: Show Me the Way, Do You Feel Like We Do, Baby I Love Your Way, Doobie Wah, Penny for Your Thoughts
That's fine listening to "Baby, I love your way".
Listened so many times, the flang effect still holds up.
He escuchado la mitad y la verdad es que bastante bastante wapo
Cool vibe. Easy to listen to rock music, but nothing that really captured my attention strongly
Frampton's live album was a good stadium rock album. Never heard of Frampton himself, but didn't realise he was the one behind 'Baby I Love the Way'. You can really feel the energy of the crowd in this one, and after 2.5 years of no live music from COVID it felt really good to hear. Best: Baby I Love the Way Worst: Lines on My Face
That's a lot of vocoder
I'm generally not a fan of live albums so we will see what my impression is going on. Thought the 2nd song sounded familiar but wasn't quite what I was thinking of. Doobie Wah kind of reminded me of the Doobie Bros sound a bit. I like the sounds, will definitely give this album a second listen.
Мастерство исполнения на высшем уровне. Поэтому, наверно, и выбран именно и выбран именно концертный альбом исполнителя.
Lked it more than I thought I would.
I mean, it's one of my bugbears... A live album, so a lot of stuff that may have sounded much better sounds muddy and stodgy. But it does have the sublime Baby I Love Your Way too. It's mostly an album full of promise, and I will have to go back and enjoy studio versions of the songs at some point.
Skil ekki hvernig þessi plata varð ein sú söluhæsta í sögunni. Stærsti smellurinn, Baby I love your way, er beinlínis boring, og ég er ekkert að springa úr aðdáun á röddinni. En margt er ágætt svo sem og rennur stundum ljúflega og stundum hressilega í gegn. Síðasta lagið, Do you feel like we do, er líka töff.
Dad rock you don't need to pay attention to. Peter has a steady hand, he doesn't need you to check in on him. He'll just keep going competently until you tell him to stop.
Not too bad. Not too good. Just OK. I take offense with another “live” album that is recorded over multiple shows and has studio overdubs on it. That’s not what I think I’m getting when “live” is advertised. I suppose almost the whole recording was taken from live performances, even if they weren’t all from the same show. But the overdubs are definitively false advertising. The talk box on Do You Feel Like We Do is cool, but it’s a gimmick after all. Not enough to boost this album. As I do, I’ll mention another related album that should be on the list: The Dave Matthews Band Live At Red Rocks (L@RR). How is it related? Well, it’s live. Wanna know how L@RR is not related to Frampton Comes Alive!? It was recorded during one show and not overdubbed. L@RR is one of the only jam bandy albums I like. It’s full of energy, more so than the corresponding studio takes. This is the album that got me into The DMB, and boy was I hooked. I annoyed the fuck out of my first year uni mates by putting Watchtower loudly on repeat far too many times than I care to admit. Of the bands I’ve noticed are not on any of the 1001 albums versions so far, the biggest omission is The DMB due to their popularity, longevity, and unique sound. I don’t get it other than they must have not become popular enough in the UK to displace Bowie’s 8th best offering.
That's not Bowie on the cover, but the man is distinctly of the same vintage. Not the best place to start from, but Frampton does a decent job. Most of the album is proficient. The talkbox helps the band sound a little bigger, but it's relegated to a novelty. Anyway, the audience clearly digs it, elevating the project somewhat in this format.
first listen easy listening 70's stadium rock
There's a great line in Wayne's World 2 that says, "Everybody in the world has Frampton Comes Alive. If you lived in the suburbs you were issued it. It came in the mail with samples of Tide." That really sums up this album. It's well recorded suburban 70s rock. It is completely inoffensive and safe. There's nothing new here and that's ok. Frampton is a great guitar player, and his band is tight and sounds great especially for playing live. Some of these songs are in heavy rotation on classic rock radio (you know the ones) and overall this album is pleasant. It was insanely successful and obviously fulfilled some market at the time and remains in interesting insight into what was popular in 1976.
I listened to it and I like it. I think this came up the last time as well. Didn't the make fun of this album in Wayne's World?
The album is nice but I don't like live albums. Also, it feels like a classic but nothing new, so I don't feel like the album is original today.
3 legendary tracks, the rest I never need to hear again.
Not my favorite kind of music, but a few more classic hits here than I knew Frampton was responsible for.
I’m not a huge fan of live albums in general, he is of course very talented. My favorite was show me the way and it would have been so you feel (like we do) if it wasn’t fourteen minutes long- maybe 8 minutes would have been enough.
S'écoute très bien, je comprends pourquoi c'est un album très populaire du rock classique.
Es un clásico, al parecer, pero no me llena mucho.
Haven’t listened to this album in ages. I actually saw Frampton at a small theatre in Hempstead NY called the Caldrone Concert hall on the tour this album was recorded at , so he wasn’t the huge star yet that he would become because of this album. Great memories, the music doesn’t quite hold up as well as the memories do.
En tiedä, onko näiden livelevyjen paikka tällä listalla ihan perusteltu. Ei mitään elämää suurempaa rokkia, sanotaan nyt sit se 3/5.
