Fully Remastered Audio / Album # 6 from arguably Glasgow's finest ever vocalist / Produced by David Mackay (Kim Carnes, Bonnie Tyler) / Includes 'When I'm Away From You ' & 'Darlin' plus 4 Bonus Tracks / 16 page full-colour booklet, 4,000 word essay with new interviews, enhanced artwork & previously unseen photos - THE SIXTH ALBUM in an illustrious career path for Frankie Miller. Once again he maintained a standard that few could match, demonstrating a voice that positioned him as one the greatest blues voices ever to have come out of the UK. Frankie's quest for perfection had built up a fervent following with the public and arguably even more so with his peers. Revered artists such as Rod Stewart and Bob Seger made no secret of their admiration for both his voice and songs, choosing to cover material that carried his reputation far and wide. 'Falling In Love' (titled 'A Perfect Fit' for the North American market) once again saw Frankie move with the times electing to work with a new producer forever searching for a definitive sound and commercial edge. Selecting David Mackay, who'd recently recorded Kim Carnes, the pace was set with the inclusion of two hit singles, namely 'Darlin' and 'When I'm Away From You'. The former propelled itself into the UK top 10 reaching #6, establishing Frankie as a household name but leaving something of a regrettable taste in his mouth that a ballad had widened his popularity. The record does however contain a brace of typical Miller heft, particularly with the tracks 'A Woman To Love' and 'Pappa Don't Know'. Elsewhere the mood is considered and, as you might reasonably expect, expertly performed and attracting comparisons to Rod Stewart and Joe Cocker albums of the same period. Perhaps Frankie's Achilles heel at this point was not truly defining his style, yet in many ways by not restricting his appeal his career would ultimately flourish and prosper.
