5.0 out of 5 stars LOVELY MID-SEVENTIES ROCK 2 Feb 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It was, of course, the 1976 double-album FRAMPTON COMES ALIVE! which turned the former Herd and Humble Pie singer and guitarist into a superstar - particularly in the United States - but its predecessor, FRAMPTON, from 1975 highlights what a fine tunesmith Peter Frampton was at this time.

Every track on here is immediate and tightly structured, with songs such as 'Day's Dawning', 'The Crying Clown' and the engagingly propulsive 'Fanfare' coming through as particularly uplifting. Overall, I think that I prefer the more well-known live rendition of 'Show Me The Way' (where that infamous "talkbox" solo is more clearly defined), but the beautifully mellow studio performance of 'Baby I Love Your Way' sounds much better than its FRAMPTON COMES ALIVE! counterpart, the song's relaxed and romantic groove being more effective in its studio setting. The album's harder rock songs like 'Nowhere's Too Far (For My Baby)' and especially '(I'll Give You) Money' show that Frampton could produce sturdy riffery with the best if them, and the contrast of brief instrumental fragments like 'Nassau' and 'Penny For Your Thoughts' further emphasise his musical eclecticism.

Not a huge success on its original release in 1975, FRAMPTON is nevertheless a superb album of melodic 1970s rock and I think the remastering job is excellent. A record unfairly overshadowed by its in-concert successor, FRAMPTON is however as enjoyable to listen to as it sounds like it was to make.

4.0 out of 5 stars Frampton's breakthrough studio album 23 Aug 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
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.

An excellent album with some lesser known tracks that do not disappoint. Peter Frampton, as usual, at his very best.

4.0 out of 5 stars Frampton's breakthrough studio album 18 July 2001
By Hindburn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
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.

In that sense it very much resembles the hit sound of 'Comes alive', but without the extra 'urgency' of a live performance.
The songs 'Show me the way', 'Baby I love your way' and 'Money' and the short acoustic guitar instrumental 'Penny for your thoughts' (all contained in the live album) are included, but because of their familiarity they are not my favourites on this record. To me, perhaps the best tracks are the relatively gentle 'One more time' and 'The crying clown', which include very tasteful guitar solos, whilst among the more lively songs 'Day's dawning' and 'Fanfare' are the most memorable.
So though hardly a musically ground-breaking album, 'Frampton' shows the artist establishing his identity as a competent purveyor of melodic pop/rock, and is an essential for any Peter Frampton enthusiast. And with most of Frampton's albums having been unavailable on CD for years, the release of several of his early albums in remastered form is very welcome indeed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent CD 1 Oct 2009
By D. Vello - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
We purchased this item because we were looking for a non-live performance of "Baby, I Love Your Way". That is "our" song and we wanted to use it as our first dance at our wedding. We found it on this album and we are very happy with the purchase.
The rest of the CD isn't bad either. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Frampton at his prime 9 Dec 2004
By Frampton's mammal - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
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.
