Thankfully Frankie Miller focuses on the bluesy, rocking, soulful songs rather than the soft pop of his big hit Darlin’. There is some duplication. For example there are three versions of Down The Honky Tonk but, as it’s one of my favourite songs, I don’t mind.

The Best Live Albums Of All Time
This is another of those albums that doesn’t fit neatly into a category. It’s too rocky to be soul but it’s not blues rock and it isn’t successful enough to be included in the classic rock category.
It’s an album that reminds me of Joe Cocker but without the big band accompaniment.
