Among the highlights on the 1975 Frampton album are his most enduring classics, "Show Me The Way" and "Baby, I Love Your Way," which amazingly, were written in the same day. Frampton recalled to us the back-story of composing the tunes for his classic self-titled fourth solo album: ["I had, like, three weeks in Nassau, The Bahamas — which for anyone else would seems like a dream — but for me, it was work, because we were going to record as soon as I got back. And it was very difficult to start with. It wasn't until the last week, in desperation, that you can actually be forced into (laughs) something. And then that's of course, when I wrote the two big hits from that record — and later, the live album — in the same day; 'Show Me The Way, and 'Baby, I Love Your Way.'"] SOUNDCUE (:26 OC: . . . love your way)
