Rock Report: Frampton Comes Alive Again
Peter Frampton’s new DVD and Blu-ray FCA 35 Tour: An Evening With Peter Frampton and it’s companion triple CD set, Best Of FCA! 35 Tour is in stores today (November 13)
The DVD features footage taped at New York City’s Beacon Theater and Milwaukee’s Pabst Theater, with Frampton personally going through the tour’s performances for the hottest versions of all the songs for the CD.
As well as performing the 1976 Frampton Comes Alive! album in it’s entirety, the new set dips into his recent works — including the 2006 Grammy Award winning instrumental collection, Fingerprints, his most recent album, 2010’s Thank You Mr. Churchill — along with an emotional take on the Beatles’ “While My Guitar Gently Weeps,” an instrumental cover of Soundgarden’s Black Hole Sun,” and rousing renditions of Humble Pie’s “Four Day Creep” and “I Don’t Need No Doctor.”
