His gritty whiskey-soaked voice was immediately compared to the true giants of the era such as Paul Rodgers and Rod Stewart. High Life was yet another album of discovery for not only Frankie but also for his growing fan following. Producer Alan Toussaint was almost a deity in the New Orleans soul and funk-rock genres, having produced a litany of acts. Recruiting a pedigree team of session players, including Atlanta Rhythm Section guitarist Barry Bailey, the record was cut in Atlanta and engages a more refined musical direction yet still propels his gritty, blues-fuelled voice to the fore.

Tight, funky and raw the tracks explode with a masterful force, giving the impression that Miller was onto not only to something big but also authentic. If you're looking for the perfect combination of Otis Redding and Paul Rodgers then look no further. Songs such as 'Play Something Sweet (Brickyard Blues)', 'The Devil Gun' and 'I'm Falling In Love Again' ooze class and sophistication yet also capture a rawness that unmistakably identifies him as one of the most soulful white singers on the scene.
