"I'm in You" is a 1977 album by Peter Frampton. Frampton returned from touring in 1976 to record this album. Stevie Wonder is also featured.

Background

Under pressure to deliver a studio follow up to one of the biggest selling albums of the decade, Frampton faced a virtually impossible task, and came up with the album "I'm in You", which was recorded at Electric Lady Studios in New York, where "Frampton's Camel" had been recorded four years earlier, with Frampton demanding bodyguards to protect him from overzealous fans who were going to distrupt the recordings, made even more difficult by the fact that in the two years since he'd cut any new material, he had evolved musically away from some of the sounds on "Frampton Comes Alive!".

Seven million albums later, he had become a solid lightweight rocker who had set sales records and who would soon find himself welcoming Stevie Wonder, Richie Hayward, Ringo Starr, and Mick Jagger into the studio for his follow-up album. The result was mostly a surprisingly laid-back album steeped in lyricism and craftsmanship, particularly in its use of multiple overdubs even on the harder rocking numbers.

"I'm in You" rose to the #2 slot on the Billboard album charts, whose keyboard driven, dominated by the sound of the opening bars Baldwin Piano, ARP String Synthesizer-generated string section, Moog synthesizer, rather than a Guitar, and eventually involves a Gibson Les Paul, and Acoustic Guitar, played by Frampton, it was clear that Frampton was exploring new sides of his music. Title number became his most successful single yet, seeing the album and same-titled single reach platinum and #2 respectively.

The song "I'm in You" was soon parodied by Frank Zappa on his album Sheik Yerbouti with a song called "I Have Been in You".

The song "Rocky's Hot Club" was a novelty song written about Framptons dog Rocky, who lay across his lap as he wrote the song. On the track Frampton actually plays harmonica, and guitar.

Brooklyn post-punk band I'm in You named itself after Frampton's album.
