Being a teenager in the 70’s meant the discovery of the popular culture of the time, the movies were “The Godfather, Star Wars”, Jaws or my all time favorite:
“A flew over a cuckoo’s nest”. The Pop-Art made popular by Andy Warhol a decade earlier found its places in museums and while jazz and rock decided to date each other and disco was the music of choice for dancing, the progressive rock lead by the Pink Floyd released their most popular albums in the 70’s. Rock was alive and well!
Led Zeppelin and The Who were references of the genre and Peter Frampton whom I did not know then released an album named “Frampton Comes Alive” recorded while touring in the US in 1975. I remember enjoying the energy of his music just as much as Weather Report or Mahavishnu. I never been in a Peter Frampton concert but I would have loved attending a Frampton Comes Alive concert in 1975.
Diving in the culture of the 70’s is a flash back to a world of creation I personally miss.
The cut is “Do you feel like we do” where Frampton uses a “Talk Box” ancestor of the vocoder, this effect box mixes the sound of his voice with the sound of his guitar. The late Bob Mayo is on the keyboards and John Siomos on drums, Stanley Sheldon is on bass.
