    Peter Frampton is or was back in the mid 1970s a bit 'light weight' and he couldn't really follow up after the huge success of FRAMPTON COMES ALIVE! and then went into a slow decline.

    FRAMPTON COMES ALIVE! is ok I suppose if you fancy a bit of mid 1970s arena soft rock on a sunny day?. Actually dudes I mite even dig it out and have another listen.

    Not a huge fan of either, but the live talkbox on Frampton's album gives it the lead for me. Do You Feel Like We Do is the highlight of the album. Amazing how that studio song that was just 'ok' turned into a beast of a live track.

    The same can be said for I Want You To Want Me. Ok-at-best for a studio track, massive on the live stage.
