#1 ON BILLBOARD BLUES ALBUMS CHART FOR 7 WEEKS
PETER FRAMPTON FINALE —THE FAREWELL TOUR CONTINUES THROUGH OCTOBER
“One of rock ‘n’ roll’s lifelong major players” - Rolling Stone
16 AUGUST 2019 (TORONTO, ON) - The double LP vinyl version of All Blues—Peter Frampton’s first-ever blues album with the Peter Frampton Band—is out today via UMe. The vinyl version includes the bonus track “I Feel So Good” (written by Big Bill Broonzy, originally performed by Muddy Waters), and is also available as limited edition translucent blue color pressing exclusively at PeterFrampton.com.
All Blues continues to chart on the Billboard Blues Albums Chart after 9 weeks, where it debuted at #1 and remained in that position for 6 consecutive weeks. The new collection also marks Frampton’s best overall sales numbers and chart positions since the release of Fingerprints in 2006. USA Today raves, “All Blues captures Frampton at full technical and emotional power,” while Guitar World furthers, “For guitar enthusiasts, these discs will prove to be a treasure trove of six-string riches, with Frampton stretching out luxuriously on what could be viewed as a Great American Songbook of the blues.” All Blues is available HERE.
All Blues was recorded with Frampton’s longtime touring band, made up of Adam Lester (guitar/vocals), Rob Arthur (keyboards/guitar/vocals) and Dan Wojciechowski (drums). The album was recorded at Frampton’s studio in Nashville, Studio Phenix, and was co-produced by Frampton and Chuck Ainlay. It features collaborations with Kim Wilson, Larry Carlton, Sonny Landreth and Steve Morse.
Moreover, Peter is in the midst of his Peter Frampton Finale—The Farewell Tour, presented by SiriusXM and produced by Live Nation. The show has been met with rave reviews across the country—the Philadelphia Inquirer exclaims, “[it’s] a show so triumphant and buoyant you could hardly believe this guy had anything more than a cold…for something billed as a finale, it sounded as if Frampton was just getting started,” while Tulsa World adds, “he is more alive and no less a guitar ninja than ever before…Frampton is literally going out on top,” and the New Hampshire Union-Leader furthers, “his contagious enthusiasm and technical wizardry [are] on full display.”
Frampton will retire from regular vigorous touring at the end of this year due to his diagnosis of the autoimmune disease Inclusion Body Myositis (IBM). IBM is a progressive muscle disorder characterized by muscle inflammation, weakness and atrophy. Frampton discussed his diagnosis with CBS “This Morning: Saturday,” watch the segment HERE, and also recently discussed on the Consequence of Sound Podcast, listen HERE.
The tour features the Peter Frampton Band, plus Steve Mackey on bass. Special guests include Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Evening, as well as Julian Frampton Band on the west coast stops. Tickets and VIP packages are available at www.frampton.com. $1 of every ticket sold, as well as any donations, will benefit The Peter Frampton Myositis Research Fund at Johns Hopkins, a newly established fund by Frampton and Johns Hopkins, where he’s being treated.
Peter Frampton remains one of the most lauded artists in rock history. The Music Business Association just presented him with the Chairman’s Award for Sustained Creative Achievement at the Awards & Hall of Fame Dinner that is part of the Association’s annual conference—Music Biz 2019. Frampton was also recently honored with the Les Paul Innovation Award at the 2019 NAMM Show’s 34th annual TEC Awards, and celebrated the 43rd anniversary of his fifth solo album, Frampton Comes Alive!, one of the top-selling live records of all time (over 17 million copies sold worldwide).
