PETER FRAMPTON
Uncasville 2010 [Kitty Lickin’ Discs Production, 2CD]

Live at the Mohegan Sun Arena, Uncasville, CT, June 16, 2010. Very good audience recording.

As Peter Frampton explains, this current tour could have been the tour that never was. Massive flooding in May in Nashville, Tennessee affected Soundcheck, a storage facility where hundreds of the city’s musicians stored their treasured instruments.

In her review of the Massey Hall, Toronto show in examiner.com, Lisa McDonald pointed out: “The instruments on the Massey Hall stage are new. The Nashville floods of last May apparently immersed their original equipment in 12 feet of water, almost cancelling the entire tour. Frampton thanked his crew for saving the day and they’re now planning benefit shows for both the Nashville flood victims and the recent devastation caused by the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.”

But floods and benefits aren’t the only things on Frampton’s mind. Explaining a song on his new album, Thank You Mr Churchill, Frampton says: “This one… pissed me off a bit. It was basically the meltdown of Wall Street… I managed to get ‘greedy’ and ‘pigs’ in the same sentence, so we’ll try this one. It’s called Restraint and, of course, they have none.” Maybe that’s just part of Frampton’s British wit; or maybe we expect that anyone who is involved with or has appeared on Family Guy to have something pointed to say.

As reports of the tour indicate, Frampton is in good form and, not only that, the shows are turning into big sing-along sessions. Show Me The Way gets an extended run and it’s clear Frampton and the crowd are enjoying themselves. The happy vibes continue with the crowd favourite, Baby I Love Your Way. If Do You Feel Like We Do? clocked in at 14 mins on Frampton Comes Alive!, here it becomes a 20-minute workout. Frampton then takes a slight instrumental detour when he covers Soundgarden’s Black Hole Sun, giving props to Chris Cornell along the way. As a bonus, we have included a rocking Humble Pie classic, I Don’t Need No Doctor, and a spine-tingling While My Guitar Gently Weeps (both from the Massey Hall in Toronto) to round off the proceedings.

The guitar and rock icon is not above hocking his wares on stage. Here, he gamely and good naturedly encourages the audience to pick up his CD at the door (”I thought you all had it already. The doors are locked and those who don’t have it will be buying it… forced-fed it on the way out. And I’ll be there to check… every copy!”) At another venue, it’s “T-shirts, 10 dollars… for sale!”

Thanks to Relayer35 for taping and sharing the show at Dime. The taper seems a wee bit to the back, there is a slight echo but nothing that will mar your enjoyment of the show. Thanks also to BurnBoy who recorded and shared the Massey Hall show on Dime.

  2. I saw this show. This entertainer has aged well and
    has lost none of his skills. Pete’s son sings the
    lead vocals on Road To The Sun, as he does on the
    Churchill CD.

  3. hey bigo, thanks! this looks like a shorter set than what i saw in montgomery, al aug 1. frampton had no opening band. he went on at 7:30pm and played till 10pm. he was good. john regan played with frehley’s comet. frampton did encourage people to buy his lp. he said the only bad thing is you can’t play it on the way home so buy the cd too. he did a long version of do you feel like wed do and did black hole sun too. he closed with while my guitar gently weeps.

    the t-shirts weren’t $10, though! i wish i could have gotten a frampton comes alive shirt for $10. it was the arena rock price of $30. last year when i saw alice cooper his shirts were expensive too at the same venue, but there was a guy selling bootleg alice shirts for $10. i bought one.

    best,

  5. Im not fond of his version of “All I want to be is by your side” much better on Frampton comes alive.

  6. ed-stay away from the bootleg shirts.They’re usually cheaper because they’re of shoddier quality-I bought one-Judas Priest-Point Of Entry tour and will never buy another one.Now I use it to wash windows and such..

  7. just curious all….what is it with pete and the sun? He wants to go to the sun,maybe it’s a black hole sun and there’s a road to the sun…maybe that’s what put lines on his face…or maybe it was the stress working with Steve?

  8. WOW! I always have said, and still do, the the original “While My Guitar…” stands by itself, this has GOT to be one of the best versions of this song I have heard yet (then Again, Jeff Healey’s was “not too shabby,” either).

    Thanks so much for posting this! Great addition to my collection…

  9. It’s a shame Pete never gets the credit he deserves for his guitar playing. His licks are so melodic and distinctive, great tone, just a stellar player whose tasty playing stood head and shoulders above most of the strutting, wankers playing lead guitar in the ’70s. That, said, his voice remains good enough, not great, but that’s why he played with Marriott. Which brings me to the puzzling choice of “Four Day Creep” as a selection from the Pie days. That one’s so Marriott! Why not “Shine On”? Whatever. Really nice sounding audience recording. Thanks, Big O!
