    First song was cool. I loved the changes and how Frampton played em.

    The Thrill is Gone is harder than it seems and I think they should have worked more on it. It comes across like a meh jam to me.

    Totally diggin the Frampton tonez.

    Don't know if the song is on the album but saw him with Steve Miller last year and they jammed on Elmore James' Stranger Blues and it was smokin'!

    I’ve heard Peter say in interviews that he’s trying to get as much recording down as he can before this IBM diagnosis hits hard enough that he can’t do it anymore. It’s a sad thing. I gobbled up tickets to his show here in Chicago. I’ve always contended he’s the most melodically gifted rock guitarist to come out of that era. Drastically underrated as a player in my opinion. Makes modal jazz so very accessible. It’s almost a shame his live album got so much airtime when it was released—people soured on him because it was overplayed. This live recording of “All I Want to Be” is a gem...

    He's a fine guitarist, but this isn't quite working for me.

    i'm tempted to repost 'Walk On Gilded Splinters' from Performance: Rockin' The Fillmore again.
    Oh, what the heck...

    Best Frampton ever, imho.
    The rest of the boys aren't too shabby either.

    I saw him in Mobile, AL in 78 or 79. His warm up was Gary Wright. Both were great. Frampton's timing and the way he teased the audience with guitar licks was superb.

    Thanks for posting that!

    That is fantastic, you can definitely hear Frampton's chops sailing over the whole thing.

    My oldest sister (I am the youngest of five) is 9 years older than me and she turned me on to Frampton when I was about 8 (around 1975) and first beginning to play guitar. Huge influence in the early years. Such a melodic,vocal sound to his guitar playing.

    I think even with all of his success, that he is still criminally under-rated as a guitar player. Nobody plays like he does, not to mention his great voice and songwriting skills.

    And thanks to @Brian H for posting the blues tracks.

    He really is a good player. I think its too bad they went with a more pretty boy vibe after the Live album.

    I love how on this album you can just tell its him playing. He has a way of throwing in melodic notes that most people dont do. then it pops as Frampton.

    He did some good playing with Bowie also for a while.

    Exactly.

    You worded it perfect Brian.

    He's instantly recognizable because of that.

    Just pulled on it, I don’t want to hear anything before it arrives. I wouldn’t have known if it wasn’t for this post! Thank you, I love his playing.
