Elton, Rod, Kid Rock And More Duet With Frankie Miller

For all his popularity and brilliance, Frankie Miller remains one underrated artist and songwriter whose pieces are loved by many and have been covered by rock elite. Not able to produce new music after a 1994 brain haemorrhage, the Scotsman still has a lot to offer to the public, though, but if "Long Way Home" – released 10 years ago, which is a long time – was a naturally finished album he’d worked on with Joe Walsh before that stroke, “Double Take” has Frankie’s original vocals augmented with the voices of his admirers. Some of these – like Rod Stewart and Bonnie Tyler – appeared on a Miller tribute album back in 2003, but now there’s even more stellar line-up involved in the duets.

During his active days, Frankie’s sole documented duet seemed to be one with Rory Gallagher on “Walkin’ The Dog” yet this time there are Elton John, STATUS QUO’s Francis Rossi and Kid Rock paying homage to the great Miller. The record will see the light of day on September 30th on CD and vinyl, with bundled options available, including a package with a “Sending Me Angels” documentary on DVD. The full tracklist for the album runs like this:
