Most of the key tracks from 'Comes Alive' are covered, together with a few numbers from later albums, but herein is one of the failings of the collection - that it tries a little too hard to reproduce the original hit live album. This is rather pointless as the defining live versions of those songs are on 'Comes Alive', and the 1999 renditions do not add anything new. 'Do you feel like we do', for example, which was already an almost interminable 14 minutes long on the original live album, is now even longer, and 'Can't take that away' (from the 1994 'Peter Frampton' album) is stretched to 10 minutes and yet is weaker than the studio version (Peter's swearing in a mock Scottish accent not surprisingly adds nothing of value to this track!).Read more ›
This really is an exceptional album, and a showcase for Peter's guitar mastery. His playing has matured to a frightening degree, and the sheer class almost overwhelms you. Likewise his vocals are as strong as ever, yet his phrasing is more subtle, adding to the impact of this superb collection of songs.
Lines On My Face is still one of my favorite Frampton songs, and this version is simply stunning. The song selection is awesome, ranging from the Humble Pie classic I Don't Need No Doctor to You Had To Be There, which also appears in the superb Almost Famous movie, in which Peter plays a hilarious cameo as Reg, the Humble Pie manager.
The guy just keeps on getting better, folks. Every track is a gem, and there is enough of a variation in styles to make this a very satisfying album all the way through. The classics are in here, with some great newer songs too.
A great album from one of the classiest guitarists in the business.

Excellent "live" cd. As I said in a previous review for "Frampton Comes Alive", I got the opportunity to see Frampton up close in a small hall and I was blown away by the show. Read morePublished on October 29, 2004 by Jim K
