Peter Frampton Says Industry Preventing Box Set

Peter Frampton says that the state of the record industry has all but made a career-spanning box set a bad investment. Frampton, who’s in the midst of his critically acclaimed Guitar Circus Tour, has always taken the time to present the best product for fans — even going so far as to dip into his own pocket for the recent DVD and Blu-ray disc, FCA 35 Tour: An Evening With Peter Frampton.

Frampton spoke frankly about the prospects of compiling his first career-spanning collection in over two decades: “We did the Shine On: A Collection, obviously a bunch of years ago now; that’s the closest thing I’ve ever had to a box set. I don’t know, y’know, with the state of the music industry, and I can tell you from the last studio album to releasing the DVD, and the three-CD set from Comes Alive 35, record sales — I can feel it — have slid further off the charts.”
