Import. Three CD set includes booklet. Frankie Miller is a Scottish rock singer-songwriter, who had moderate success in the 1970s with a gritty voice similar to Rod Stewart or Joe Cocker. Bob Seger has remarked Miller was a huge influence on him, in an Rolling Stone article 1978. Miller began singing professionally as a teenager with a Glasgow band called the Stoics. In 1971, he was 'discovered' by guitarist Robin Trower, who had just left Procol Harum and he was looking to put together a new band. Miller introduced fellow Glaswegian bassist and vocalist James Dewar to Trower and the three of them, along with ex Jethro Tull drummer Clive Bunker, formed the short-lived band Jude in July 1971.
