It's always interesting to hear music legends in their early days. First bands, first albums, first hits. Peter Frampton is certainly no stranger to the mantle of music legend, and his first band, The Herd proved to be a great stepping off place.

The Herd were a pop outfit that had been around since 1965, but became hit makers when psychedelia came to town in 1967. Adding Psych to their direction, they scored with several hits, including tonight's track, I Don't Want Our Loving To Die which hit at Number 5 on the charts in April, 1967.

Proclaimed by many to be an innovative band who were apparently considerably different live than they were in the studio (a common observation of many groups at the time), they put together a string of pop hits between the years 1967 and 1969, before the band split off and morphed into other groups seeking other directions. Peter Frampton probably became the best known, from his association with Humble Pie before going solo to filling arenas.

You would probably never know, listening to this track, just how much of a leap Peter Frampton would make in a short period of time. But the history of Rock is filled with them.
