PETER FRAMPTON - Shine On - A Collection (1992)
Peter Frampton is a British musician, best known today for his multi-platinum selling solo work in the mid-1970s when he was an “arena rocker”. He originally became famous, however, as a young member of psychedelic era band The Herd and became a teen idol in Britain. Steve Marriott reportedly wanted to bring the 18 year old Frampton into the Small Faces lineup but when rebuffed, started Humble Pie with Frampton instead. After touring the US and Europe for two years, he left Humble Pie as the group was gaining popularity because of disdain for Marriott’s hard living lifestyle and screaming boogie rock direction. Aside from his work with Humble Pie, other recordings of this era that feature Frampton include albums by Harry Nilsson, Jerry Lee Lewis, and George Harrison. His solo debut was 1972’s Wind Of Change, which did not fare well on the charts, and neither did two more efforts, one under the moniker Frampton’s Camel. Constant touring though began to create awareness of his talents and 1974’s Frampton LP went gold. He gained lasting international fame by 1976 when his much-loved live album, Frampton Comes Alive! was released. Having built up his reputation on the road, the LP debuted at No. 1 on the charts in January 1976. It was long considered the best-selling live album of all time, moving over 16 million copies worldwide.
