In a Facebook message, the guitar whiz reports that the discs will include high-definition footage from shows he played in New York City and Milwaukee. Frampton also reveals that the concerts were captured in 5.1 surround sound audio.
In addition, the veteran rocker says a 30-track companion CD -- what Frampton refers to as "Best of FCA35" -- will be available on November 13, as well. He explains in the Facebook post, "We multi-track recorded nearly all of the 116 shows that made up the entire [Frampton Comes Alive 35] Tour. From all the shows I have chosen my favorite performances of each song and instrumental."
He adds that the CD is in "the final 'tweaking the mixes' stage and I am editing them all together." With regard to the quality of the performances, Frampton boasts, "If I played my own trumpet I would have to say that I am very excited at the results. Then again I don't play trumpet!"
