Background

Frampton pursued a somewhat grittier sound on his second solo outing, 1973's Frampton's Camel, which was recorded in New York at Jimi Hendrix's old Electric Lady Studios. Four years later, Frampton would record there again for his #2 hit album I'm in You.

Frampton's original drummer Mike Kellie decided to leave the band because of differences with Frampton. The album shared its name with the band Frampton assembled for the occasion, which was actually more of a group project, including bassist Rick Wills, new drummer John Siomos, and keyboardist Mick Gallagher.
