    Thanks MB,
    I just pulled out my old vinyl RTF for a closer look. Looks like the gold barrel knobs are there.

    At that time, I didn't know the name "Peter Frampton" and a few years later when FCA came out, and it was all over the radio, I thought, :hmm:Hey, thats the same guitar player that plays with Humble Pie!
    Framptons guitar style was so unique and easily recognizable.

    Planks, thanks for the clips. nice to see Peter getting national exposure playing current tunes from the Churchill album.

    Midnight Blues, page 158 from Jerry's book; "Although the record released was the entire show verbatim, there turned out to be more than one occasion when a good edit was needed, as many of our songs were unacceptably long. "Gilded Splinters" for instance was edited down from 33 minutes to a mere 23:35".

    MCA (A&M), please bring on the unedited "deluxe version" many have talked about for so long.

    You're welcome Bob. Yup, they're there alright. That was the album that got me hooked on him. His style was some much different than anyone else at the time that that's what drew me to him in the first place. So melodic and unbelievable phrasing. Of course, it helped that he played a Black Les Paul too. I wanted that thing so bad I could taste it!

    I think the "Churchill" album is great Hb and I'd love to here the entire version of "Gilded Splinters". He really played some tasteful stuff on that tune.


    Thanks for the posts and :cheers: guys!!!!

    Alright, so I couldn't resist; just got finished playing the first side of the "Fillmore" with my Frampton, through my Class 5. Good thing I didn't use my 1974X, because the Class 5 was plenty LOUD!!!!


    :cheers: and Happy New Year!!!!

    I remember that Derringer album, and I thought the same thing. I actually liked the album before and the two "Derringer" albums in 76 and 77.

    Likewise dt. He can really play. It's funny, because I was trying to think this morning while I was laying in bed of when I saw him back in the '70s with Edgar Winter? I want to say that they were touring with Gary Wright (I specifically because of Derringer), but I can't say for sure? I do remember they were really good and of course, Rick was fantastic!

    I was going to SUNY@Plattsburgh and saw this show in the college gym, maybe 300 people tops. Found out later in the album credits that part of the show I saw was recorded for FCA. Unforgettable performance.

    Thanks for the post geo!!!! I seem to remember you mentioning that elsewhere too? Can't remember if it was on this forum or somewhere else though, but I remember you mentioning you having gone to Plattsburgh, since my wife lived there for a while while her father was in the U.S. Airforce. It's a cool story!

    I can remember going to see him before FCA hit the shelves, he was a warm-up act then. Hardly anyone (excluding me of course since I was there to see him specifically) had a clue of who he was. If you can believe this, I saw him last year and if there were 150 people there that night, it was a lot.


    Thanks again and :cheers:
