Peter Frampton recalls 45 years of 'Frampton Comes Alive'

Forty five years ago today -- January 6th, 1976 -- Peter Frampton released the iconic Frampton Comes Alive album, which would sold more than six-million copies in 1976 alone, turning Frampton into a superstar.

It also became the best-selling live album of all time.The album spent 10 weeks at #1 and gave us the radio classics "Show Me the Way," "Baby, I Love Your Way" and "Do You Feel Like We Do."

Frampton Comes Alive has sold more than eight-million copies in the U.S.

Frampton talked about the venues where the album was recorded:

"It was mostly Winterland, and then the night before, we did two shows at Marin Civic Center and that's where some of the acoustic stuff comes from, 'Do Be Wah' comes from. We didn't have a huge budget to do many, many nights. It's like a lot of people will, you know, record a whole tour, now."

Peter said he had no idea the album would become such a sensation:

“We sort of expected it, since as the album before it, the Frampton record, with 'Baby I Love Your Way' and 'Show Me the Way' on it, we expected after that sold 350,000 copies, which was my bigger seller to date, we expected the live one to do just a couple more hundred thou... We expected it to be gold, which 500,000. And of course, I think it did that the first week."

He also talked about how the albumn changed his public image:

"I've always been a musician first in my mind and a guitarist, not so much a singer. Guitar always came first but because of Frampton Comes Alive, because of its immense success, I think perception of the audience, the general public was that I was more of a pop star-singer than I was a musician. Someone once said, 'You know, if you're good looking, you can't be that talented."
