I'm in You is the fifth studio album by Peter Frampton, released in 1977. Frampton returned from touring in 1976 to record this album. Stevie Wonder is also featured.[citation needed]

Background[edit]

Under pressure to deliver a studio follow-up to one of the biggest selling albums of the decade, Frampton faced a virtually impossible task. He came up with the album I'm in You, recording it 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 disrupt the recordings.

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, Mike Finnigan, Ringo Starr, and Mick Jagger into the studio for his follow-up album.[citation needed]

I'm in You rose to the No. 2 slot in the US on the Billboard album charts. In Canada, the album entered the chart directly at #1.[2] The title track became his most successful single yet, and the album and same-titled single reached platinum and #2, respectively. On the Cash Box singles chart, I'm in You reached No. 1, as it also did in Canada.[3][4]

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