Unfinished songs shine with star help Frankie Miller apparently had loads of songs in various demo stages before he was struck down with a brain haemorrhage in 1994. Now, someone has had the idea of getting in a clutch of the biggest names around to help get 18 of these up to a sufficient standard for release. ‘Sufficient’, though, is an understatement; this album is a triumph.
Frankie Miller is one of the great unsung rockers of the '70s, a blue-eyed soul singer on par with Rod Stewart and Joe Cocker who could also rock as hard as Bob Seger. All three of these artists recognized a kindred spirit in Miller, with all three covering his songs in the '70s and '80s. Like all hard-working rockers, Miller kept working right into the '90s, when he tragically suffered a brain hemorrhage while woodshedding a new band with Joe Walsh.
