PETER FRAMPTON BAND'S ALL BLUES DEBUTS #1 ON BILLBOARD BLUES ALBUMS CHART

PETER FRAMPTON FINALE - THE FAREWELL TOUR KICKS OFF TONIGHT

 

“One of rock ‘n’ roll’s lifelong major players” – Rolling Stone
 

As Peter Frampton gets ready to kick off his Farewell Tour tonight in Tulsa, the Grammy-winning guitarist is also celebrating another first in his long and distinguished career: All Blues, his first-ever blues album with his Peter Frampton Band, is debuting at #1 on the Billboard Blues Albums Chart in the U.S. The new collection, released via UMe, also marks his best overall sales numbers and chart positions since the release of Fingerprints in 2006. All Blues is available HERE.

All Blues, which features Frampton and his longtime touring band made up of Adam Lester (guitar/vocals), Rob Arthur (keyboards/guitar/vocals) and Dan Wojciechowski (drums) putting their spin on some of Frampton’s favorite blues classics like “Can’t Judge A Book By Its Cover,” “She Caught The Katy,” “The Thrill Is Gone,” “I Just Want To Make Love To You,” and “Georgia On My Mind,” continues to receive widespread critical acclaim:

All Blues captures Frampton at full technical and emotional power…”—USA Today 

“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.”—Guitar World

“The thrill is definitely not gone for Peter Frampton…”—Billboard

“Frampton interprets beautifully”—Guitar Player 

“…there’s still a palpable sense of passion and joy on All Blues, and that evident big, beating heart makes it worth a spin.”—All Music

“Frampton and his current band deliver the goods.”—Music Connection

 

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.

The vinyl will be available as a double LP and also as a limited edition translucent blue color pressing on August 16 exclusively at PeterFrampton.com. The double LP will include the bonus track “I Feel So Good (written by Big Bill Broonzy, opb Muddy Waters).

Moreover, Peter Frampton Finale—The Farewell Tour presented by SiriusXM and produced by Live Nation, starts tonight. The approximately 50-date will run throughout the summer and fall. 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 will feature 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 are on sale now and VIP packages will also be 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).
