A showcase for Peter Frampton’s growth as a songwriter and guitar player, Frampton’s Camel is named after his touring band, honoring the groove this collective had reached in 1973. Prominently featuring Mick Gallagher’s superlative keyboards, the hard-rocking hooks and catchy melodies here lay the foundation for the superstardom that would come just a couple albums and tours later with Frampton Comes Alive. Camel includes the smash hits “Lines On My Face,” “Don’t Fade Away” and a majestic cover of Stevie Wonder’s “I Believe (When I Fall In Love With You It Will Be Forever).” Camel also introduced the world to the all-time classic rock anthem “Do You Feel Like We Do,” with a songwriting credit to the entire band. This fan favorite has remained a highlight of Frampton’s legendary live performances for decades.


"... the SACDs definitely offer a clearer view into the music. You also get a better sense of the group harmonies, with a clearer sense of the other three members of the group’s vocal contributions ... To my ears, this is the best these albums have ever sounded, so if you are an early Frampton fan, these will really make you smile. " (May 23, 2023)

- John Crossett

"The sound on this recording lays out the formula that Frampton would take to mega-success three years later with the release of Frampton Comes Alive … Frampton's use of dynamics and mix of acoustic and electric guitars keeps the music from becoming one-dimensional.” - AllMusic

Intervention's Frampton@50 series 180G vinyl reissues are 100% Analog Mastered by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering from the best analog tape sources available.

Intervention worked for months with Universal's archive team, scouring the vaults in the US and UK for the best-sounding tapes . Several sets of tapes, including 1970s-era tape copies, were sent to mastering and evaluated by IR's Shane Buettner and Chris Bellman.

The best-sounding tapes are 1/2" safety copies from the 1990s A&M Safety Program. The "Wind of Change" and "Frampton" safeties are sourced from UK Production Masters, while the "Frampton's Camel" safety is sourced from the Original Stereo Master. These tapes sound sensational, vibrant, detailed and alive. Combined with Chris Bellman's work at the board, and the superbly transparent mastering chain at Bernie Grundman Mastering, legions of fans will hear what Peter and the band really put on tape during this seminal period. Fans will hear bottom-end authority, dynamics and textural details never revealed on any previous edition. These are the definitive versions of these amazing albums that made Peter Frampton one of the greatest artists of his time!
