Peter Frampton streams Georgia On My Mind from All Blues covers album

Peter Frampton is streaming audio of his version of the 1930 classic, “Georgia On My Mind”, from his newly-released covers album, “All Blues.”

First recorded by co-writer Hoagy Carmichael, the song became a standard over the years and was a US No. 1 hit for Georgia native Ray Charles in 1960.

“I’ve heard Ray Charles kill it, I’ve heard Steve Winwood kill it and I would never attempt to sing this song,” says Frampton. “There’s just too many great versions by so many great singers. I decided we would do this song as an instrumental. It’s turned out to be a highlight on this record and just shows the versatility of the band.”

Frampton recorded “All Blues” at his Nashville home studio with his longtime touring outfit of guitarist/vocalist Adam Lester, Rob Arthur (keyboards/guitar/vocals) and drummer Dan Wojciechowski.

“With this recording,” explains the guitarist about the project, “we pay tribute to all the original artists who invented this incredible music. I hope you can hear and feel our enjoyment. I'm not sure if you can say we had fun playing the blues. But we definitely did."

“All Blues” is now available in multple formats, including digital, CD, and 2LP alongside a limited edition translucent blue vinyl color pressing exclusively available via

In sync with the album’s release, Frampton will launch his farewell tour in Tulsa, OK on June 18.
