Reissued 1977 album and Digitally Remastered. The package contains not just his 1977 'Full House' album but additional bonus track 'Sail Away' from a rare Chrysalis EP. Frankie singer is accompanied by Jim hall, Ray Minhinnit, Chrissie Stewart and Graham Deakin. The ten original tracks include Frankie's big hit single 'Be Good To Yourself'. Millers powerful voice is steeped in soul and his at his best on 'The Doodle Bug Song', a Miller original and John Lennon's classic 'Jealous Guy.'
The Scotsman rocks on this one!
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This is the first Frankie Miller album I was able to get, and it is still my favorite. His is a voice that could sand the splinters off your porch railing and still leave you wanting to hear more. Not everyone feels the same way, of course; people tend to either love it or hate it right away upon having their first taste of the soulful Scotsman. The band on "Full House" is tight and expressive, and they provide an excellent counterpoint to showcase Miller's vocal talents. "Be Good to Yourself" is a good, rock-solid opener, and "Jealous Guy" (a cover of the John Lennon song) here sounds more convincingly anguished and heartbroken than any other version I've heard. When Frankie Miller belts out a song about love gone awry, it's enough to make you wonder if he's about to break down in tears or go out and shoot someone (possibly both!). If you're a Miller fan, this is an essential piece of work to have."
