Former Herd and Humble Pie founding guitarist Peter Frampton hits major strides with his 3rd LP 'Something's Happening". Working with a whittled down to a trio of drummer John Headley-Down and bassist Rick Wills, Frampton produces a tapestry of diverse musical rock styles on this LP. "Underhand" is probably Frampton's best track of all time, starting off with glistening, upbeat acoustic guitars and moving into an unforgettable chorus. "I Wanna Go To The Sun" and "Sail Away" are 7 minute mid-tempo rockers that builds rather nicely with great melodies. "(Baby) Somethings Happening" is another one of Frampton's best ever songs; wondering why the record company didn't release or promote this heavily as a single. When this album was released, it really didn't make much fanfare. The truth is, this LP has held up very well over time as one of Peter's more artistic plateau LP's before the "Frampton's Comes Alive" sensation hit. Please, don't miss this one! A true gem.
“Something’s Happening is Peter Frampton’s 3rd LP originally released in 1974. After the breakup of Frampton’s Camel, he reassembled a trio of bassist Ricky Wills and drummer John Headley-Down to create a phenomenal record. The music doesn’t hit you at first, but certainly grows on you in time. “Underhand”, “Something’s Happening” & “I Wanna Go To The Sun” are the standouts here. “Waterfall” is a great track as well. Great guitar work, nice production and vibe. By the sound and maturity of this LP, you knew something big was just about to happen in Frampton’s solo career. Of course it did! Please buy this CD and play it three times straight through!! I guarantee you will love it.
