8. Peter Frampton - 'Frampton Comes Alive!'
Former Humble Pie guitarist Peter Frampton had a decent following before his 1976 live album Frampton Comes Alive! hit shelves, but in his wildest dreams he couldn't have imagined what the record would do to his career. Live renditions of his songs "Baby I Love Your Way" and "Show Me the Way" exploded at radio and Frampton Comes Alive! began selling as quickly as the record company could churn them out. It spent ten weeks at the top of the album charts and teenage girls began decorating their rooms with Peter Frampton posters. The mania was short-lived, though he continues to be a live draw to this day. He even played Frampton Comes Alive straight through a couple of years ago.
