024:  PETER FRAMPTON IN LONDON

 

Peter Frampton In London

And then we come to this LP, only mentioned in the HW appendix. Was there an original release on death records that was missed in HW? Or was this just handed over to K&S as a planned but never finished death records release? # 521 was still available and I have added it to my original death records listing found here.

I am not sure what is actually on this album as there only seems to be one broadcast performance, “Show Me The Way”, live from the Pavilion in Hemel Hempstead, 26 October 1976 (see the link). In addition, there was a BBC recording from 1975, which had been previously booted on TKRWM 1810 gemini

If anyone knows more, please leave a comment.

Lofgren N Live

I had written I did not want to include this but in the end the drive to list all titles by a label won. Also, this image just became available.

This is a pirate of the following 1975 promo LP:

Lofgren N Back It Up! AAB

The official bootleg as a promotion tool … and a big tease to the music loving public. It was all about control in the end.

Lofgren N Back It Up! AAB lbl

Lofgren N Back It Up! AAB lbl 2

Recorded at the Record Plant in Sausalito, California, on October 31, 1975, then A&M released 1000 copies to radio stations.

Finally officially released on CD in 2007, except for one song. wolfgangsvault.com has the complete session.

“We were big fans of Nils Lofgren and [A&M] had had enormous success with the Peter Frampton album [Frampton Comes Alive]. Then they put out a ‘live bootleg’ to radio stations only of Nils Lofgren and it was fantastic. Everybody wanted that album, and I waited a year for A&M to release that thing, I even wrote a letter to them saying ‘Put this thing out…!’ ‘cos I think it would have made a difference in Nils Lofgrens career … After a year I took that album and counterfeited it as a bootleg [not this Flat release – that was Ken’s]. I probably sold 2,500, 3,00 copies of that.” [Lou Couhan (of Hofmann Avenue Records) quoted in Heylin, Bootleg, page 120]
