An unexpected treasure for fans of Frankie Miller and '50s country music - Contains seven lost songs never recorded before or since - Includes Frankie's narrative about each of the songs he sings - Contains demo version of a song from Frankie's first COLUMBIA session in 1953 - Includes Frankie's previously unissued tribute song to Cajun fiddler Harry Choates - Contains unpublished army photos of Frankie - Historical liner notes by Hank Davis detail an often-overlooked period in Frankie's career One of the most unusual country records of the year, if not the decade! Texas honky-tonk singer Frankie Miller enjoyed a string of hits for STARDAY in the '50s and '60s. Nearly a decade before those classic recordings, Frankie was drafted into the Army. He gave up a blossoming music career and went off to fight in Korea. Frankie bought a guitar while on leave in Seoul and taped a letter for the folks back in Texas, singing samples of the latest songs he had written while far from home. Over sixty years later, that tape was found and made its way to this historic LP!
