Lamont's Music Notes For March 30th

Here are Lamont's Music Notes for March 30th.

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 !??!!??”

Here’s Peter Frampton on the Midnight Special in 1975 performing “Show Me The Way”

Music News - March 29th, 1975 - Led Zeppelin

Here’s why I consider Led Zeppelin one of the greatest rock bands of ALL-TIME.
On this date in 1975, all six Led Zeppelin studio albums were on the Billboard 200 album chart at the same time.

Burglar Gets His Pants Pulled Down By A Fence During His Escape

A man in Arizona learned a valuable lesson about jumping spiked fences in baggy pants. Michelle Valenzuela, with the communications department of the Tucson Unified School District, said the incident happened around 10:30 a.m. Friday at Miles-Exploratory Learning Center on East Broadway Boulevard. According to a safety report, a locksmith working at the school spotted a man trying to get into a couple of rooms. When the man saw the locksmith he ran and tried to jump back over the school’s spiked fence. The suspect didn’t quite make the leap, his pants got caught and he was left hanging upside down with his underwear showing. That’s when Jesse Sensibar and Kristin Woodall were passing by. They snapped a photo and shared the story on Facebook.

March 28th, 1973 – Led Zeppelin

On this date in 1973, the mighty Led Zeppelin released their fifth studio album “Houses of the Holy”.
This album contained “Over The Hills And Far Away”, “The Rain Song”, “the Song Remains the Same”,and “No Quarter”.
The album became a commercial success, and was later certified 11X Platinum by the RIAA (the Recording Industry Of America).
And here’s an oddity, the title track “Houses of the Holy” was originally recorded for this album, but was delayed until the release of band's next album in 1975 (Physical Graffiti).

Here’s the official promo video for the song “Over The Hills And Far Away”

March 27th, 1979 - Eric Clapton

Eric Clapton married George Harrison's ex-wife, Patti Boyd in Tucson, Arizona. George attended the wedding as did Ringo and Paul. BTW, she must have really have had some magic because George Harrison wrote the song “Something” for her, and Clapton wrote the song “Layla” for her !!

This might be the greatest all-star collection of talent to ever jam on a song. Clapton, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, Joe Cocker singing back up, and what looks like Vladimir Putin rockin’ the tambourine.
