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.
Two years after the album’s original release, A&M Records issued an abridged, single-LP version of the album as a picture disc, with slightly modified artwork from the original cover.
This LP was issued on pink vinyl in the UK and yellow vinyl in Canada, though both versions were widely available in the U.S. as imports in the late 1970s, when companies around the world were pressing lots of limited edition colored vinyl LPs.
