Keen Epiphone fans know that rock legend Peter Frampton is a longtime fan of Epiphone. Frampton's vintage Texan
has been a part of his recording and concert career since the very beginning. But if you only know Frampton from the classic live LP Frampton Comes Alive
, check out his early recordings with Humble Pie on the new vinyl box set which covers the band's career on A&M records from 1970-1975. Frampton produced the set with drummer Jerry Shirley. The LPs were remastered by Kevin Reeves and each album has been pressed on 180grm vinyl with original artwork.
"I'm so glad that we finally have this fantastic boxset, on vinyl no less, of Humble Pie's great body of work," said Frampton in a press release. "Jerry and I have worked together with A&M for sometime to get this released. We pay tribute to our two lost brothers, Steve (Marrriott) and Greg (Ridley) and hope you enjoy this as much as we did putting it all together."
Frampton begins a summer tour tonight in Toronto, Canada with support from the Steve Miller Band with scheduled dates throughout the U.S. including the historic Greek Theater. Visit Frampton's website
