London 2022 [no label, 2CD]

The Farewell Tour. Live at the Royal Albert Hall, London, UK; November 8, 2022. Very good audience recording.

Thanks to SIRMick; and to ledwhofloyd for sharing the show at Dime.

SIRMick noted:

Peter was helped on to the stage because he is now quite unsteady on his feet. The effects of Inclusion-Body Myositis are gradually taking hold of his body. He was seated for the whole of this performance , as were his band.

Simon Reed,

Frampton plays a thirteen song setlist, plus the three encores. On paper, that might have seemed a little light, but with his easy conversation and these truly spectacular extended instrumental sections in some of the tunes it comes in at just under two and a half hours of inspirational music. They finish with While My Guitar Gently Weeps. It’s a fitting end to our time with one of the UK’s most iconic players.

The elephant in the room is Peter’s condition and the fact that we may not see him play in the UK again. Before he leaves the stage, he addresses it: “Never say never. I’m going to keep on fighting. Thank you very much everybody. This is a dream come true for me.”

Kevin Cooper interviews Peter Frampton,; March 12, 2022:

The record company originally intended to put the record [Frampton Comes Alive!] out as a single album, with two glaring omissions. Were you happy that they subsequently changed their minds and released it as a double album?

Absolutely, simply because, as you quite rightly point out, Baby, I Love Your Way and Show You The Way were not on the single album (laughter). That always blows my mind whenever I think about it (laughter). So, when Jerry Moss, of A&M Records, who is my dearest friend, he really is so wonderful, and is still doing great things, came to see the Los Angeles concert. We had mixed the single album and we all thought that because this was my fifth album with A&M and I hadn’t really made them any money at that point, the management and I thought that it was a good idea to record a single album when taking budgets into consideration. So, Jerry came into the Electric Lady studio, which as you know were the studios of the late Jimmy Hendrix and sat directly in front of the console.

I couldn’t see him, but as the record faded out from Do You Feel Like We Feel this face came up from behind the console and he said, “oh my god, where’s the rest” (laughter). So, I said, “you mean that you want more” and that is one of those moments that I will never forget. I told Jerry that we didn’t really have any good versions of the newer songs, which were Baby I Love Your Way and Show You The Way, to which Jerry replied “well go out and record some more” (laughter). So, we went out and played another six or seven more shows, and then we had enough tracks for a double album.
