Frampton "Comes Alive!" (1976)...

Não, não é o ao vivo no Brasil heim?
Todos sem excessão, lobos ou não envelhecemos e isto é claro e óbvio; uns com mais dignidade e outros se tornando piores ou amargos e até mentindo pra poderem continuar suas vidas vazias.

Hoje me deu uma saudade da adolescência e um disco que sempre quis postar foi este.
É pra mim um marco na fase de crescimento musical e qdo principalmente ia de lá pra cá com as bolachas embaixo do braço pra ouvir onde houvesse um toca discos e gente a fim de partilhar emoções.

Talvez considerado pop, se esquecem que Peter Frampton só fez parte da emblemática (nossa!!!) Humble Pie ao lado de outro monstro de nome Steve Marriott tb criador do Small Faces...bem aí é outra história e fica pra uma próxima; voltando ao nosso post apesar de execrado por alguns Frampton é dono de uma técnica apuradíssima, de uma voz agradável e de uma simpatia a toda prova e por isso sempre o tive em alta estima.

Junto com alguns álbuns e me perdoem se não escalo manjados como "Beatles e Stones" este e mais alguns que virão se der pra ser feito, é um dos melhores discos que já ouvi inclusive pela gravação ao vivo e sua qualidade o que pra época já era um fato mas ainda difícil de chegar no mercado brazuca.

Que gostoso poder ouvir ao escrever estas linhas, que viagem sem a necessidade de nada a não ser do som que já acompanhei "n" vezes e sonhei como tantos aos acordes de suas canções, sem dúvida pra mim algo que faz muito bem só pra aliviar a tensão das peças que a vida nos prega. "Frampton Comes Alive! is a double live album by Peter Frampton released in 1976, and one of the best-selling live albums in the United States.
Following four solo albums with little commercial success, Frampton Comes Alive! was a breakthrough for the artist.

Released on January 6, 1976, it debuted on the charts at 191.
The album reached number one on the Billboard 200 the week ending April 10, 1976, and was inthe top spot for a total of 10 weeks. It was the best-selling album of 1976, selling over 6 millionin the U.S. and became one of the best-selling live albums to date.

Frampton Comes Alive! was voted "Album of the year" in the 1976 Rolling Stone readers poll.
It stayed on the chart for 97 weeks and was still #14 on Billboard's 1977 year-end album chart.

The most recognizable songs from the album are "Show Me the Way", "Baby, I Love Your Way", and "Do You Feel Like We Do", all of which were released as singles, and continue to receivemuch airplay on classic rock radio stations. In January 2001, a 25th Anniversary Deluxe Edition of the album was released, containing fouradditional tracks that were not included on the original version (although one of these was recorded in a radio studio as part of a broadcast, and does not form part of the main concert programme).

The track sequence is also significantly different, to more accurately reflect the set list used inthe original concerts.
Frampton produced the completely remixed and extended album, and played an impromptu live,with the original band from the album at Tower Records in Los Angeles to help promote the release.

The album was recorded in summer and fall 1975, primarily at Winterland in San Francisco, California and the Long Island Arena in Commack, New York.
The Winterland recordings were recorded on a 24 track master recorder.

Other concerts were recorded on a 16 track recorder.
Recordings from four different shows were used for the original album. Master tapes were recorded at 15 inches per second using professional Dolby "A" noise reduction. The live album was originally intended as a single LP disc, but at the suggestion of A&M Records additional shows were recorded and the album expanded to two LPs for release.

During the concerts, Frampton principally used a distinctive black custom Gibson Les Paul electric guitar (with three humbucking pickups as opposed to the usual two). Although his use of the talk box guitar effect was limited to only two songs on the album, as a result of "Show Me theWay" being released as a single the talk box sound became strongly associated with Frampton.

On the special features for the "Live in Detroit" concert DVD , Frampton commented that some difficulty was encountered in the mixing after the cord to the bass drum mic got pulled, accidentally causing the mic to face at a 90-degree angle from the drum head.

The double album was released in the U.S. with a special reduced list price of $7.98, only $1.00 more than the standard $6.98 of most single-disc albums in 1976.
The album was pressed in automatic sequence, with sides one and four on one record, followed by sides two and three on the other. This arrangement was intended to make it easier to listen through the whole album in sequence on automatic record changers."Personnel
