Glasgow-Born Songwriter's Greatest Unreleased Songs Recorded with a Host of Special Guests including Elton John, Rod Stewart, Kid Rock, Joe Walsh, Willie Nelson & Huey Lewis Among Others!

Frankie Miller is one of those undiscovered gems: an artist who many won't know by name, though they will know his music when they hear it. Having been covered by everyone from Rod Stewart to Ray Charles, The Traveling Wilburys to Etta James, Johnny Cash to Roy Orbison, his songs have become part of the musical landscape, even as most listeners would struggle to name the talent behind them. When Miller suffered a brain hemorrhage in 1994, it seemed that he was forever doomed to remain in the shadows: an unsung hero beloved by other musicians, though hardly the household name he deserved to be. Yet, in his 28-year career, Miller impressed many of the biggest names in music.

Fittingly, many of his peers have gathered together to record Frankie Miller’s Double Take, a 19-track album largely composed of duets with the man. These songs might never have seen the light of day had Rod Stewart not asked producer David Mackay if he knew of any unreleased Miller gems. After contacting Frankie’s partner, Annette Miller, Mackay received two garbage sacks full of demos. “The tracks were simple,” he says of the recordings, “but the vocals were stunning.” Mackay promptly set about “creating proper backing tracks with top musicians from around the world.”

With input from artists as varied as Elton John, Willie Nelson, rock icons Joe Walsh and Kid Rock, and Southern soul guitarist Steve Cropper, the demos have been worked up into finished songs that retain the integrity of Miller’s original recordings. “The response was overwhelming,” Mackay says, noting that “Elton John thought ‘Where Do The Guilty Go’ was a classic.” Fittingly, the collection is rounded off by "I Do," a solo Miller track. Tracing Miller’s remarkable career, from Glasgow-born vocalist to adored talent respected by music icons the world over, Frankie Miller's Double Take gives his biggest, most famous fans the chance to explain why Miller remains so important to them.
