Background: Frampton Comes Alive! was one of the biggest selling albums of the 1970s and it turned the former Humble Pie guitarist into a superstar overnight.

The album reached #6 on the UK charts and #1 in the U.S., where it sold more than 8 million copies.

Allmusic.com gave Frampton Comes Alive! a 4 1/2 star review:

At the time of its release, Frampton Comes Alive! was an anomaly, a multi-million-selling (mid-priced) double LP by an artist who had previously never burned up the charts with his long-players in any spectacular way. The biggest-selling live album of all time, it made Peter Frampton a household word and generated a monster hit single in “Show Me the Way.” And the reason why is easy to hear: the Herd/Humble Pie graduate packed one hell of a punch on-stage — where he was obviously the most comfortable — and, in fact, the live versions of “Show Me the Way,” “Do You Feel Like I Do,” “Something’s Happening,” “Shine On,” and other album rock staples are much more inspired, confident, and hard-hitting than the studio versions.
