March 30th, 1975 - Peter Frampton
On March 30,1975 Peter Frampton released his fourth album, the self titled “Peter Frampton”.
This album reached gold status in terms of sales by the RIAA September 13,1976. It also reached number 32 on the Billboard charts, but this album’s major significance rests in the fact that it’s the tour in support of this record that resulted in the recording of “Frampton Comes Alive”.
Now, I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again ...I’m a freakin’ sucker for any song with a TALK BOX. I remember seeing Frampton on the “Midnight Special” and saying to my brother “WTF is he playing and doing with that tube in his mouth, making his guitar sound so cool !??!!??”
