Frampton Comes Alive .. 39 years later!
This week, back in 1976, one of (if not THE greatest) "live" albums of all time was released, Frampton Comes Alive. This album went to #1 and stayed there for about 3 months, rare for a Double-Album back then, and there are a few other "tidbits" of info you may have forgotten...
It was released at a price of $7.98. That was only one dollar above the average Single LP price. It contained concert material from four different concerts, some were recorded on 16-track machines, some on 24-track machines, probably a nightmare for the album's producer. And it was arranged with automatic record changers in mind (remember those...? ) by putting sides 1 and 4 on one disc, and sides 2 and 3 on the other. Peter thought it would be easier to listen to that way.
So, from one Frampton Comes Alive fan to another... I salute you today, and I'll be sure to play something from this masterpiece on the 5:00 Punch-Out today !!!
