Editorial Reviews

Following his Grammy Award-winning instrumental album, 2006's Fingerprints, Peter Frampton returns with Thank You Mr. Churchill (A&M/New Door/UMe), his most personal collection to date. The 11-song set, co-produced and co-engineered by Frampton, features the legendary guitarist at his most incisive lyrically as he tackles the battles that wage within us and the outside forces that rage around us. His searing guitar work flows over every song, setting the mood. "This album is very autobiographical," Frampton says. "It starts with my birth, which I thank Mr. Churchill for bringing my father back from the Second World War." Recorded at his home studio in Cincinnati, Churchill is deeply intimate, weaving tales of loss, love and redemption and the lessons learned along the way. Churchill also includes Frampton's reflective take on troubling world events, including the Wall Street bailout ("Restraint") and even the tragic case of Megumi Yokota, a Japanese girl kidnapped more than 30 years ago by North Korea ("Asleep at the Wheel"). Frampton wrote all tracks on Churchill, penning many with longtime collaborator Gordon Kennedy. His co-producer/co-engineer, Chris Kimsey, was the engineer on Frampton's first solo record, 1972's Wind of Change. Co-engineer Don Gunn (Death Cab For Cutie) also contributes to Churchill. Guests include Pearl Jam drummer Matt Cameron, who also played on Fingerprints, and the legendary Funk Brothers, who appear on Frampton's Motown homage, "Invisible Man." Frampton remains one of the most celebrated artists and guitarists in rock history. At 16, he was lead singer and guitarist for British teen band, the Herd. At 18, he co-founded one of the first super groups, seminal rock act Humble Pie. His fifth solo album, the electrifying Frampton Comes Alive, is one of the top selling live records of all time.

While I have enjoyed Peter Frampton's music for (many) years, I have equally admired the PERSISTENCE and PASSION he brings to his craft. Like all of us in our lives and careers, Mr. Frampton has experienced the up's and downs ,the peaks and valleys, but thru it all, he just keeps getting better as an artist. With the release of "Thank You Mr. Churchill" I will now need to add the word PERSPECTIVE in what I admire about Mr. Frampton.
This album is autobiographical in nature and deeply personal. He writes about his past, the future and topic's he feels strongly about which only 60 years on this earth, 45 of them as a professional musician can lend perspecitve to.
For you guitar lovers out there, don't worry, he delivers these strong lyrics with the same musical expertise/quality that won him a Grammy a few years back on the all instrumental "Fingerprints" CD.

I'd recommend you purchase the entire CD or album (yes it's on vinyl), If not, (AND THIS WASN'T EASY!) my top three favorites to download for a taste would be "I want it back", "Road to the Sun", "Vaudeville Nanna and the Banjolele". For you instrumental lovers, you will not be dissapointed with "Suite Liberte', A. Megumi and B. Huria Watu.
For me personally, this is Peter Frampton's strongest overall effort in a long and successful career. As I mentioned above, he just keeps getting better!! Lucky for us!

Rarely does an album come along of this caliber. From start to finish it is simply amazing. The rocking track with Peter's son Julian, the track with legendary Motown Funk Brothers, Matt Cameron on drums (Pearl Jam / Soundgarden) throughout, and even the instrumental track simply make me speechless. This is classic Frampton evolving and reflecting on the ups and downs in his life. The guitar work is right up there with all the legends. Do yourself a favor and pick up this album. You will not be disappointed. Best album since Frampton Comes Alive!

Over the years Peter Frampton has gotten his share of the "raw deal" in putting out music. Ever since he released 'Frampton Comes Alive' that seemed to be his benchmark for every other release that he would ever do and fans of that album just wouldn't forgive him if he even tried to put out something different. Shame on all those who haven't followed Peter Frampton over the years and stopped listening to him shortly thereafter and his live release or even the 'I'm in You' release. Was every release stellar, probably not, but so much was based on the music at the time. With his self-titled release in 1994 and further releases I believe he has matured and just gotten better. He is such an underrated guitar player and when you listen to his previous release 'Fingerprints' you'll have a better appreciation of his guitar talent. With 'Thank You Mr. Churchill' Peter Frampton puts out a stellar effort. From start to finish it is just a great and solid rock album. Forget your pre-conceived notions about Peter Frampton's long blond-haired live glory days from 1976. He is so much more than that as an artist and always has been and this albums just proves that. If you like Peter Frampton then this is one album to surely pick up. It's a keeper and worth every star of the five star rating.

His last album (all instrumental) won a Grammy. If thats the case then this one could be "the one" that gets people to say did you get the new Peter Frampton album? who what? Peter has delivered a fine new album of songs hot guitar solo's. I doubt highly that this album will get any airplay on the dinosouar FM . Too bad this is the kind of album that should play hard rocking mixed ballad songs could this album return Peter to playing madison square? I hope so but only if he wants it. In the past 6 months we have seen a return of Eric Clapton with Steve Winwood, Jeff Beck has been brought back to the spotlight they rose Hendrix from the dead giving him a top selling album and now Peter is up at bat. I hope this is the return of the guitar player
A solid 4 star album and perhaps his strongest ever Studio album bar none. I own 20 of them.

PS check out the guitar solo on "asleep at the wheel" and then the absolutely wonderful ballad that follows it. Where in the hell have we all been (LOL)

We need to remember what we buy CD's for. We are looking for Hits, for Favorite Songs. How many CDs come out with, well, passing songs that are not entirely obnoxious, and so we give the CD a fair rating. But Why? there are Millions of passing songs out there the are not entirely obnoxious, and if they were all to disappear at the snap of my fingers (Snap! Snap! Snap!), well, the World would probably be better off for it. Clear off all that Dead Wood. What do we need mediocre songs for anyway!?

why am I saying this? Well, I am giving 4 stars to a CD where every song s... is really bad, EXCEPT for one, but the one song is an amazing exception.

"Vaudeville Nanna and the Banjolele" comes up to the level of being a personally favorite song (but, yes, at this moment I have 562 favorite songs, but, remember, I am an old man and have been collecting favorite songs since the 60's and there are a few 'Favorites' in there that date before that... the Best of Western Civilization's Pop Music).

"Vaudeville Nanna and the Banjolele" is a tremendously heartfelt and sentimental song... musically just beautiful... and lyrics that make you cry at every verse. First, of a poor father who can't afford anything but who still goes out and buys his son his first musical instrument, then we have an aloof post-Victorian Mother who finally reaches out to her son when she sees him starting to write poetry for the first time, and then we have a Dream of his old deceased Grandmother handing him a 'banjolele' and doing a duet with him up in Heaven somewhere. It is just incredibly beautiful... poetically... musically.

so you can toss all of the other songs, and just buy this CD for "Vaudeville Nanna and the Banjolele", and still think you bought a 5 Star CD... well, another good song would have been nice.
