ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Country Music Association of Texas Hall of Famer Frankie Miller has released his first new country project in over fifteen years. Miller went into the Justin Trevino studios last fall to record fouteen new songs for "The Family Man."

He brought back a few of his own classics including "Family Man" "Too Hot To Handle" "Two Lips Away" with Heart of Texas Recording Artist Leona Williams, "Blackland Farmer" and a song that he wrote with famed songwriter Hal Bynum "Out of This World."

Miller also called on his old friend Tom T. Hall and recorded "Old Side of Town" "I Flew Over Our House" and added Hillman Hall's comical "Don't You Dare Tell Ruby Where I'm At."

"I wrote 'If You Were Me' for Webb Pierce in the 1950's," Miller said. "It was a great record for Webb and I always wanted to record it myself. I finally got the chance to do it on this album."

The project is completed with "Pain" "There's A Song On The Jukebox" Johnny Cash's "Pickin Time" and "Song Of Songs."

"I wanted to add 'Keep On The Sunnyside' to end the album," Miller said. "I have performed that song so many times and always get requests for it. I am real proud of the way that Justin Trevino sang with me on the song. It is one of my favorite cuts."

Miller still performs throughout the Southwest and is part of the afternoon Country Music concerts held at the Ernest Tubb Record Shops in the Ft. Worth Stockyards nearly every Saturday.

"Frankie Miller is really enjoying his music now more than ever," Producer Justin Trevino said. "He told me the other day that music is so much easier when you don't have to make a living doing it."

Miller recorded for various labels in the 1950's and 1960's including Gilt Edge, Starday and Columbia.

About time !
Around 1974, I had an 8-track of Black Land Farmer which contained 12 of Frankie's Starday Recordings from the late 1950s/early 1960s. Since then there's been nothing available domestically (I've found a few used 45s), so this is a welcome addition to my collection. Miller's voice isn't quite as strong has it was in the 1950s but he's retained about 95% of it. This disc features new recordings of his two biggest hits, the #5 "Black Land Farmer" and the #7 "Family Man", plus some other songs he and others wrote including "Too Hot To Handle" (a song on which I recall a great Willis Brothers cut),"Out of This World" and "If You Were Me", a top ten hit for Webb Pierce. Of the covers, I really liked his take on the old David Wills hit "There's A Song On The Jukebox". This is country music "as it ought to be"
