The 1970s gave birth to a plethora of guitar greats. These electric stringmasters were known for their epic solos, especially in a live setting. In the annals of rock history, Peter Frampton will always be known for creating memorable songs that were impressive lyrically and instrumentally. Owning Frampton’s masterpiece “Frampton Comes Alive!” is almost a requirement for any ‘70s rock enthusiast. Even today, the voice-box anthems found on this album still enjoy steady radio rotation.
With a new album in hand, Frampton has been giving his audience another interpretation of his most memorable songs. “Acoustic Classics” takes many of Frampton’s biggest hits and delivers them in a stripped-down format. Known for his intricate work on the electric guitar, songs such as “Do You Feel Like I Do,” “Baby, I Love Your Way” and “Show Me the Way” take on a new aural persona. Frampton expertly morphs these arena-rock hits into gentle, emotional anthems.
