Song of the day: The Frankie Miller Band – "A Fool In Love"

Today’s song is here is the direct result of fellow music lover Sal Nunziato (hi, Sal!). A recent post on Sal’s blog, Burning Wood, focused on Frankie Miller. That caused me to reminisce about one of the first singles I bought when I started buying records*. It was this:

The Frankie Miller Band – “A Fool In Love” (1975)

Live in Germany with his backing band, 1976:

Live in Sweden with a Swedish backing band, sometime in the ’80s:

Yep. I still think that’s great singing, and a great song.

(*Uninteresting trivia: The first single I ever bought was Paul McCartney’s “Junior’s Farm”.)

    Frankie doesn't really excite me – I suppose Southside Johnny fills that niche in my musical pantheon – but, “Junior's Farm” is a rather underrated single. Jimmy McCullough was a fine guitarist.

    Hey, Hazy Dave:

    “Frankie doesn't really excite me”

    Fair enough.

    “I suppose Southside Johnny fills that niche in my musical pantheon…”

    It's time for me to investigate the music of Southside Johnny.

    “…- but, “Junior's Farm” is a rather underrated single. Jimmy McCullough was a fine guitarist.”

    I love “Junior's Farm”. I think Jimmy was a mighty fine guitarist, too. And Laurence Juber. And Rusty Anderson. Paul attracts good guitarists.

    Uninteresting Paul McCartney-related trivia: The first album I ever bought was Band On The Run.
