After releasing an album each year from his first solo release in 1972, this record was the one which gave Peter Frampton his first real taste of solo success. As he toured the States in support of it in 1975, he found his music was being greeted with increasing enthusiasm, even though back in his native England most people barely remembered him from his earlier successful years with The Herd and Humble Pie. This American success paved the way for his massive smash live album 'Frampton comes alive', which took the world by storm in 1976, and although his superstardom rapidly waned thereafter, the live album brought his melodic pop/rock and tasteful lead guitar work to a worldwide audience.
'Frampton' in many ways followed the pattern of Peter's three previous solo albums, containing largely guitar-driven, lively songs, with his characteristic lead guitar style and sound, and some short instrumentals. However, the songs were, in his own opinion, considerably better than many of his earlier ones and had a more commercial sound. Despite being recorded during the gloom of a British November, the album has a cheerful, sunny sound which perhaps helped its American success the following summer. The recording was made with a mobile studio at Clearwell Castle in the Welsh borders, and has something of a 'live' ambience about it, reflecting the acoustic characteristics of the large castle rooms in which it was recorded. The songs are primarily based around Frampton's lively but relaxed piano and acoustic rhythm guitar work, with attractive melodies and harmony vocals, but the overall sound is fairly simple and not heavily overdubbed. In that sense it very much resembles the hit sound of 'Comes alive', but without the extra 'urgency' of a live performance.

This is where I discovered Peter Frampton. Most of my generation jumped on the bandwagon with Frampton Comes Alive, but I had already been listening to Show Me The Way and Baby I Love Your Way for a year before. I still love this album and own it on CD.

Frampton uses a lot of guitar textures on the songs, both acoustic and electric. He was and still is an excellent guitar player and songwriter. At times, his lyrics can be a bit off the path with odd couplets like "nerve ... submerge." At times his lyrics are almost surreal in their imagery. But you get the message. And the arrangements are wonderfully melodic. There really is not a clinker on the album.

If you only know Frampton Comes Alive, this is a nice companion and probably the best of his pre-stardom solo career (although I can't really say because I haven't heard any of them). There are only three songs shared between the two (plus the short instrumental Penny For Your Thoughts which is actually the intro to (I'll Give You) Money on both albums).

I went into this album expecting a pleasant listen, because the few songs I know from Peter Frampton have shown me that he is a pretty good songwriter who just writes nice music. That's exactly what this album is- a nice listen. I didn't hear any wild guitar playing (not that I went in expecting to) but I did hear a listenable collection of nice tunes.

The way Peter Frampton seems to *almost* write ballads, but insists on throwing in *just* the right amount of guitar playing as a way to seemingly trick the listener into thinking he's writing a ballad when in fact it's actually somewhere in between a ballad and a rocker, is probably his trademark sound. That's the thing I always remember about him, anyway.

Another thing- the back of the album says this album was recorded in a castle, and Frampton comments on how freaky that is, and how the music reflects that. Not really. Now, Sabbath Bloody Sabbath is an album recorded in a castle that really SOUNDS like it was.

Anyway, this album is just what I expected- a nice listen with nice songs coming from a nice guy. It's nice to hear versions of "Show Me The Way" and "Baby I Love Your Way" that AREN'T from Frampton Comes Alive. In the case of "Show Me The Way", there's a certain empty vibe about it that the live version seemed to fill, and surpass. "Penny For Your Thoughts - (I'll Give You) Money" is a really good, energetic way to end the album, too. The former being a good instrumental, and the final song being a pretty decent rocker. Good music.

This was the first Frampton album I had owned, and is still my favorite. Alive was a great album, but the intimacy of Frampton's recording is what tips the scale in it's favor for me. Recorded at Clearwell Castle, this album gives the feel that only you, Peter, and a few bandmates are at a private listening party. Also, some great, underappreciated songs here like One More Time, The Crying Clown, Day's Dawning, and Nowhere's Too Far. The material here plus a few songs pulled from I'm in You would have made for a great live set; who knows, maybe it's not too late for Frampton to cut another Live album from some of these "other" great songs from the 70's. But you don't need to be a Frampton completist to own "Frampton", it stands next to Alive on it's own laurels.
