Frankie Miller: Sugar Coated Baby (1996) MP3/Flac
There were plenty of shameless Hank Williams imitators in the early 1950s, but few had the arresting originality of Frankie Miller. This CD brings together material from two old BF LPs, and it is some of the best "unknown" country music you could ever hope to find. Yes, Miller apes Hank's tone and style, but his own songwriting flair and heartfelt delivery are stunning. One of the best single-disc Bear Family releases in recent memory.
Taking the album Hey! Where You Going? one step further, Sugar Coated Baby contains his complete '1954-1956 Columbia sides, including many of his hits. This single-disc, 30-track collection is absolutely essential for Miller Fans.
