Frampton Comes Alive! is a double live album by English rock musician Peter Frampton released in 1976. It is one of the best-selling live albums in the United States, and considered by many to be one of the finest live rock recordings of all time. 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 in the top spot for a total of 10 weeks. It was the best-selling album of 1976, selling over 8 million copies in the US and becoming one of the best-selling live albums to date, with estimated sales of 11 million worldwide.

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 No. 14 on Billboards 1977 year-end album chart.

The most recognisable 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 receive much airplay on classic rock radio stations.

Year:  1977
Format:  LP

I’m in You is Peter Frampton‘s fifth studio album, released in 1977. “I’m In You” was released almost a year and a half after his well-received 1976 album, Frampton Comes Alive!  It was recorded at Electric Lady Studios in New York, where Frampton’s Camel had been recorded four years earlier. Guest musicians Stevie Wonder, Richie Hayward, Mike Finnigan, Ringo Starr, and Mick Jagger are featured on this album.

It was almost inevitable that I’m in You would be thought of as a letdown no matter now good it was. Following up to one of the biggest selling albums of the decade, Peter Frampton faced a virtually impossible task, made even more difficult by the fact that in the two years since he’d cut any new material, he had evolved musically away from some of the sounds on Frampton Comes Alive. The result was mostly a surprisingly laid-back album steeped in lyricism and craftsmanship, particularly in its use of multiple overdubs even on the harder rocking numbers. From the opening bars of “I’m in You,” dominated by the sound of the piano (played by Frampton) and an ARP synthesizer-generated string section, rather than a guitar, it was clear that Frampton was exploring new sides of his music. Cuts like “Won’t You Be My Friend,” a piece of white funk that might’ve been better at six minutes running time, seemed to be dangerously close to self-indulgence at eight minutes long. The high points also include the title track, “Don’t Have to Worry,” and a killer cover of Stevie Wonder‘s “Signed, Sealed Delivered (I’m Yours)”; a couple of solid rock numbers, “Tried to Love” and the crunching “(I’m A) Roadrunner” also work their way in here to pump up the tension and excitement. I’m in You was successful on its own terms, and had Frampton recorded it before the live album, it would probably be very fondly looked back on.
