Frampton Comes Alive! Is Released

Frampton Comes Alive Album Cover Art

On This Date in 1976: Peter Frampton released his breakthrough double live album Frampton Comes Alive! The album would be certified gold less than 8 weeks after its release and go on to sell 6 million copies. Frampton Comes Alive! is definitely an important album in my personal history and, in my opinion, it’s among the best live albums ever released. That record unlocks so many great memories for me from that time in music. I was lucky enough to be one of about 56,000 people to see Frampton in concert (with co-headliners Yes) at California’s Anaheim Stadium back in the lovely summer of 1976, and that was a concert I will never forget.
