 /C O R R E C T I O N -- FRAMPTON 30-SONG RETROSPECTIVE/
 In LA008, Frampton 30-Song Retrospective Set For Oct. 20, the headline should read Frampton 30-Song Retrospective Set For Oct. 20, instead of Frampton 30-Song Retrospective Set For Oct. 30., as originally transmitted.
 The corrected release follows:
 FRAMPTON 30-SONG RETROSPECTIVE SET FOR OCT. 20;


TWO CDS INCLUDE 1991 TRACKS RECORDED WITH THE LATE STEVE MARRIOTT
 LOS ANGELES, Oct. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Peter Frampton's "Shine On -- A Collection," a two-disc, two-decade retrospective of the singer/songwriter/guitarist's history-making solo career, will be released by A&M Records on Oct. 20.
 The 30-song collection draws on material from Frampton's 11 solo albums. It also includes two previously unreleased tracks from a 1991 reunion project with Steve Marriott, Frampton's former colleague in Humble Pie. That project ended with Marriott's tragic death in a house fire in April 1991.
 Frampton compiled the album with Bill Levinson, who won a Grammy for producing Eric Clapton's 1988 retrospective, "Crossroads." Frampton also wrote liner notes for the collection, as did Cameron Crowe, the rock journalist turned filmmaker who wrote Rolling Stone cover stories on Frampton in both 1976 and 1977.
 The collection includes Frampton's smash hits, "Show Me the Way," "Baby, I Love Your Way," "Do You Feel (Like We Do)," "I'm in You" and "I Can't Stand It No More," as well as his classic cover versions of the Rolling Stones' "Jumpin' Jack Flash" and Stevie Wonder's "Signed, Sealed, Delivered (I'm Yours)."
 Three tracks -- including the title song, "Shine On" -- were taken from Frampton's landmark 1976 album "Frampton Comes Alive!," which remains the best-selling live album in history.
 "Frampton Comes Alive!" was Billboard's No. 1 album of 1976 and won the Rolling Stone readers' poll for album of the year. Rolling Stone readers also named Frampton artist of the year (ahead of Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen and Elton John). The headline on a Frampton profile which accompanied the poll: "Nice Guy Finishes First."
 "Shine On -- A Collection" comes on the heels of a resurgence of interest in Frampton in recent years. In the late '80s, Frampton had a major album-rock hit with "Lying" (included on this collection), he was well received on David Bowie's "Glass Spider" tour and he watched as a soundalike version of his 1976 hit "Baby, I Love Your Way" became a No. 1 single.
 In addition to chronicling Frampton's past, "Shine On" provides a tantalizing glimpse into what could have been his next musical step. The collection concludes with two songs ("The Bigger They Come" and "I Won't Let You Down") from what was to have been a new band project featuring Frampton and his former Humble Pie cohort, Marriott. The two guitarists hadn't worked together in 20 years when they reteamed in 1991 to write and record new material. Writes Frampton in his liner notes: "It has been extremely important to me that these tracks be released. As you will hear, Steve is at his very best, and the two of us, together, to me, is something very special that I only wish could have continued."
 Frampton and Marriott's classic work with Humble Pie will be featured in a separate collection, upcoming on A&M.
 In his liner notes, Frampton sheds light on the origin of "Frampton Comes Alive!" and Crowe writes of the album's massive impact on the rock scene. "Frampton became a lightening rod for rock. The enormous success of 'Frampton Comes Alive' brought waves of new fans to Frampton and to music in general. The sheer size of the record industry doubled, became an industry in many ways, and at the center of the hurricane was Peter Frampton."
 Crowe concludes his introduction by noting: "That Frampton's music remains fresh is testimony to the artist. Very simply, Frampton has stayed true to his music, his songs and his guitar. He plays them with the unfaded love of someone whose hobby became a lifelong passion. For Peter Frampton, music is a labor of love. Along the way, he made history."
