4.0 out of 5 stars Undiscovered Frankie 28 Nov 2009
By georgej
Format:MP3 Download
Its many years since I bought this on record when it came out but this is still my favourite Frankie Miller album. Every song still sounds fresh today and it includes the beautiful 'I can't Change It'. With a voice like this and Brinsley Schwarz as the 'band' how could you go wrong? Candlelight Sonata has one of tightest grooves I've heard from anyone and his version of the classic I'm Ready has a perfect smoky bar room delivery. For me the album has a rough and simple charm as it's just FM in front of a great wee band. There are quite a few singer songwriters about right now with a 'rougher' sound and if you're into that then give this a try - you might be surprised that it's from 1972!

"My own true love has gone away, what can I say she left that day, the moon still shines a different way".

4.0 out of 5 stars A Frankie Classic 10 Mar 2010
Format:MP3 Download
This is a classic from Frankie's country period. Candlelight Sonata is a work of sublime greatness by anyone's standards, but Frankie also shows his versatility by performing what in my mind is one of the best covers of Dylan's Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues that I've heard (and that's saying something as there have been some brilliant covers done by the likes of Bryan Ferry and Springsteen).
Frankie finishes off in style with an excellent cover of Muddy water's I'm Ready. To sum up, there ain't no such thing as a bad Frankie Miller album, and this is one of his best.

4.0 out of 5 stars FRANKIE FU*KIN' MILLER...THAT'S WHO + 4 BONUS TRAX 5 April 2006
By Hoodoo Chile - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
To put this disc in a proper context, please remember it was 1972, we were burned out on psychedelic music, and it's follow up, "heavy" music. The Band had shown Clapton the bright light, and groups were going back to their roots. Frankie Miller and the band that backed him on this debut disc, Brinsley Swartz, seemed to be on the same path of rediscovery.

The only difference was that Frankie's voice was as big as all outdoors, full of grit, soul, and sandpaper.....AND he could write great songs. The Brinsleys were a great band, including Mickey Jupp, Bob Andrews, future Graham Parker's Rumour members, and Nick Lowe on bass (Rockpile, Solo Artist).

But this was "MILLER TIME". The Brinsleys played supportively, but never intruded on the Scotsman's vocals. Several of these tracks hinted at what was to come, as far as Miller's songwriting went. Tracks like "I Can't Change It", "You Don't Need Laugh", and "After All (I Just live My Life)", all introspective self-analytical songs, offer glimpses of a true singer-songwriter. But this is a feel good disc to listen to, or to sing along with. There's a good mix of orignal pub rock, like "Candlelight Sonata...", "It's All Over", and "In No Resistance", mixed in with cover songs and blues, "I'm Ready", "Mail Box", and Dylan's "Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues".

Overall, this was an eye-opening debut album. A major talent, with the pipes of Otis Redding (a frequent comparison), was about to burst on the horizon. This release also has remastered sound AND 4 bonus tracks.

My only suggestion is: Start with "The Rock" and work your way back 2 albums to this one. Miller's voice is simply too great to be ignored. Forget Joe Cocker or Rod Stewart......get wise to FRANKIE FU*KIN MILLER....THAT'S WHO.
