Frampton: Alive—and in the pocket

You may not have heard Peter Frampton in a long while yet you genuinely may want to settle in with this for a bit. Or longer. His voice has some whisky in it and his songs ring out undiminished and as strong as when he wrote them.

These videos of his newly-recorded, now classic songs ostensibly promote guitar pickups, with Gordon Kennedy’s deft sensitivity as an accompanist. The clarity and warmth of these instruments with Peter’s voice is quite outstanding. Of the three tunes here, “Baby I Love Your Way” stands tall yet “Lines On My Face” has such character for him now that it’s appropriately the big finish for this session at St. Charles Studio in Nashville.

Forty years after Frampton Comes Alive echoed from arenas to coliseums to stadiums and radios across America, a more intimate RAW tour is underway to promote his first-ever acoustic album of this same material and then some.
