'Frampton - Live in Detroit'
(Peter Frampton / DVD / NR / 2013 / Eagle Vision)

Overview: Filmed in high definition on July 17th, 1999 at Pine Knob Amphitheatre in Detroit, Michigan, 'Live In Detroit' captures a classic Peter Frampton performance that has become well established as a fan's favorite.

DVD Verdict: OK, sure, I live here in the Detroit area. And sure I have been to where this was filmed ie: the Pine Knob Amphitheatre 100+ times. And sure it is nowhere near Detroit (actually Clarkston!). But no, I was not there back in 1999 for this show. In fact, all cards on the table, I've never been a fan of Frampton's. So to sit back and watch this show from my "homeland," well, I have to say as much as I won't be rushing out to buy his music or any more concert stuff of his, I did find him to be a master at his craft.

After a simple introduction, and wearing just a black tshirt, jeans and a pair of glasses, Frampton kicks off this wonderful tour set with 'Somethin's Happening,' before gliding effortlessly into songs such as 'Lying,' 'Lines On My Face,' the infamous 'Show Me The Way,' and both 'All I Wanna Be (Is By Your Side)' and 'If You Say Goodbye.'

As you watch the peformance, you'll quickly notice that he "sings" along silently to each 'word" that his guitar makes. It's quirky, for sure, but he shows how invested in his music he truly is. He continues onwards with 'Oh For Another Day,' 'Penny For Your Thoughts,' '(I'll Give You) Money,' and then both 'Nassau' and the highly-anticipated 'Baby, I Love Your Way.'

Frampton's guitar playing is never overshadowed, even when he's accompanied by such musicians on stage as his long time right hand man Bob Mayo on keyboard and guitar, John Regan on bass, and Chad Cromwell on drums. A simple set, rugs on the stage, a bright red flood lit-Frampton brings is a stirring 'Can't Take That Away,' and follows it with 'Do You Feel Like We Do,' 'Off The Hook,' 'You Had To Be There,' and then both 'I Don't Need No Doctor' and crowd-pleaser 'Gemini.'

This is a Full Screen Presentation (1.33:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs and comes with the special feature of an Interview with Peter Frampton, and some previously unseen rehearsal performance of 'Boot It Up' from the FCA! 35 tour ... weirdly!
