Frampton is more comfortably situated in that category of musicians that the public inappropriately identifies as "overnight sensation"—those musicians who toil for years and suddenly break through the threshold of popular awareness.
Acting as a review of his four previously released solo albums, Frampton Comes Alive sold an unprecedented ten million copies in one year, was met with critical praise, and epitomized the unmistakable brand of mellow and breezily melodic mid-seventies arena rock.
Frampton Comes Alive, with the exception of two tracks, was the result of one concert recorded in San Francisco in 1975.
