In true fashion for the Dressed to Kill label, this Peter Frampton and Friends date is a completely jive title. The truth of the matter is that it's vocalist and songwriter Nanette Workman's live gig with Frampton and band backing her up. Workman is a more than capable singer, as evidenced by her own material here as well as Mick Jagger's "Loving Cup," and Frampton is dead-on as a guitarist, but anybody falling for this because they think it's anything more than Frampton being a very supportive -- and at times even dominating the proceedings -- sidekick is fooling herself. It's really a rule that just seeing the Dressed to Kill imprint is cause for suspicion.
