Release Info: MILLER ANDERSON - BRIGHT CITY (DERAM 1971) Kor mastering cardboard sleeve
Songwriter, vocalist and guitarist Anderson first came to promenance in the late 60s as a member of the jazz/rock unit the Keef Hartley Band. Anderson grew in stature as a member of that band and was present for five albums. He was signed by Deram as a solo artist and released one credible album, Bright City, in 1971. Many of his former Hartley sidemen were present on the album, including record producer Neil Slaven. Junior Campbell arranged some exquisite strings for the title track and there was beautiful flute from Lynn Dobson on вЂ?Shadows вЂ™Cross My WallвЂ™. Following this album Anderson formed Hemlock with James Leverton (bass) and Eric Dillon (drums), who made one album with Deram. Anderson teamed up with Hartley in 1974 as Dog Soldier and also had spells with Savoy Brown, Canned Heat and T. Rex. He continues to perform regularly in the UK and Europe and in the mid-90s the re-release of his album on CD, together with a reissued Hartley catalogue, indicated that his star was in the ascendant. His present solo act features an excellent version of Bob DylanвЂ™s вЂ?Copper KettleвЂ™, but his finest moment is a blistering acoustic version of вЂ?DonвЂ™t Let Me Be MisunderstoodвЂ™; his voice on this track can strip wallpaper and break lightbulbs. In 1997 Anderson was touring with a revamped version of the Spencer Davis Group.[Source: The Encyclopedia of Popular Music by Colin Larkin.]Here
