Grammy Winning 2006 Album Available on Vinyl for the First Time!
Legendary guitarist Peter Frampton reissues his critically lauded album Fingerprints on the vinyl format for the very first time. Originally released in 2006, Fingerprints won the 2007 Grammy Award for Best Pop Instrumental Album and Frampton's cover of Soundgarden's "Black Hole Sun" off the album was also nominated for Best Rock Instrumental Performance. Frampton navigates a diverse range of material on Fingerprints, from American soul to Latin balladry and timeless rock.
Guest artists include The Rolling Stones' Charlie Watts and Bill Wyman on "Cornerstones"; original Shadows members Hank Marvin and Brian Bennett on "My Cup of Tea"; and Pearl Jam's Mike McCready and Matt Cameron joining Frampton for the "Black Hole Sun" cover and the original "Blowin' Smoke." Frampton's core band on Fingerprints features longtime collaborator John Regan (bass), co-producer Gordon Kennedy (guitar and backing vocals), Arthur Stead (keyboards) and Shawn Fichter (drums).
The Grammy Award-winning guitarist remains one of the most celebrated artists in rock history. At age 16, he was lead singer and guitarist for British band the Herd. At 18, he co-founded one of the first supergroups, seminal rock act Humble Pie. His session work includes collaborations with such legendary artists as George Harrison, Harry Nilsson, David Bowie, Jerry Lee Lewis, Ringo Starr and John Entwistle. In 2014, Frampton was inducted into the Musicians Hall of Fame. He recently celebrated the 40th anniversary of his fifth solo album, Frampton Comes Alive!, which remains one of the top-selling live records of all time.
