Peter Frampton  1976  Frampton Comes Alive!

At the time of its release, Frampton Comes Alive! was an anomaly, a multi-million-selling (mid-priced) double LP by an artist who had previously never burned up the charts with his long-players in any spectacular way. The biggest-selling live album of all time, it made Peter Frampton a household word and generated a monster hit single in Show Me the Way. And the reason why is easy to hear: the Herd/Humble Pie graduate packed one hell of a punch on-stage where he was obviously the most comfortable and, in fact, the live versions of Show Me the Way, Do You Feel Like I Do, Something s Happening, Shine On, and other album rock staples are much more inspired, confident, and hard-hitting than the studio versions.
