Here's The Thing (Mary Ellen Matthews)

On the latest installment of Here's the Thing, Alec Baldwin talks with Peter Frampton about the guitar god's career, his signature talk-box effect and the smash success of "Frampton Comes Alive," one of the most successful live albums in history. In fact, the podcast opens with a mighty guitar riff from that recording. "Come on, admit it," Alec begins. "If you're my age, you remember exactly where you were when you heard this."

We asked Alec to list five of his favorite Peter Frampton songs. He gave us four tracks that appeared on that infamous live recording and one from Humble Pie, the group Frampton co-founded in 1968 with Steve Marriott.

The list, in no particular order:

“Lines on My Face”
from “Frampton Comes Alive,” originally on 1973’s “Frampton’s Camel”

“Do You Feel Like We Do”
from “Frampton Comes Alive,” 14-minute version, originally on 1973’s “Frampton’s Camel”

“I Wanna Go To The Sun”
from “Frampton Comes Alive,” originally on 1974’s “Somethin’s Happening”

“All I Want To Be (Is By Your Side)”
from “Frampton Comes Alive,” originally on 1972’s “Wind of Change”

Humble Pie, “I Don't Need No Doctor”
from 1971’s “Performance/Rockin’ the Fillmore
