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.

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.
