Yep in Argent, especially as Rod Argent and Jim we’re cousins.

Didn't Rodford also play in Argent and Charlie too?

Peter Frampton, the 'Godfather' of AOR? Indeed, Frampton's contribution to the genre is immeasurable and with 'Comes Alive' the biggest selling live album of all time pushed AOR radio to a larger and lucrative audience. With 'Comes Alive' came massive stardom. He was selling out Football Stadiums throughout the US, his boyish looks were on every magazine cover of the time while his posters out sold everyone with perhaps the exception of 'Charlie's Angels' Farrah Fawcett. He had become the face of the decade with the unenviable position of recording a follow-up album nearly two years after his last studio effort.

The Songs
'The title track opens the album with what truly is one of the most beautiful ballads of the era. On this song not only does Frampton play guitar, but also drums and ARP. The single was a massive hit which I am sure had the accountants at A&M breathing a collective sigh of relief. '(Putting My) Heart on the Line' and 'St. Thomas (Don't You Know How I Feel)' are classic Frampton highlighted by his dazzling fretwork. The album closes with two covers '(I'm A) Roadrunner' and 'Signed, Sealed, Delivered (I'm Yours)' and it's on this song Frampton sounds remarkably like Steve Perry, but again it's his amazing guitar work that elevates the song to another level.

In Summary
Of course 'I'm In You' did far less for Frampton commercially as the shooting star began to fade away and a backlash ensued with both the press and general public. 'I'm In You' was typical of most his albums up to this point offering no surprises for long time fans. It's Peter Frampton simply being himself and considering the pressure he was under after 'Comes Alive' the results could have been far worse.

Got hold of Frampton's 80's AOR efforts, 'Premonition' being a true classic. Certainly lining those up for later reviews.

I might beat you to it Alun. I have 'Premonition' and 'When All The Pieces' very much in the gunsights.. lol!
#3 | jeffduran on July 06 2008 08:00:43
'lying' from 'Premonition' is an overlooked classic!
#4 | dangerzone on July 06 2008 15:36:45
I can settle for 'Breaking All The Rules'!

I remember having to 'pre-order' this album from the local record store in 1977 due to the success of FCA. I think I listened to the album once. Sadly, too much record company involvement $$$$$$$$$.
