40 Year Itch : Three We Missed

Andy Fraser : Changed Man

   A founding member of Free and vocalist with The Sharks, bass player Andy Fraser 's "Changed Man" was one of the most played songs in my "1975" iTunes playlist this year. Fraser died in March.

Frankie Miller : A Fool in Love

After his 1975 albums, Fraser tried to start a band with Scottish Otis Redding sound-a-like Frankie Miller, whose "A Fool in Love" came off his album The Rock, recorded in San Francisco.

The Trammps : Hold Back the Night

"Hold Back the Night" was a UK#5 hit in 1975 for the Philadelphia band whose "Disco Inferno" would be part of the mega-selling Saturday Night Fever soundtrack. Graham Parker has a Top 30 hit with  "Hold Back the Night" in 1977

  1. Always good to hear Frankie Miller - thankfully still with us despite a brain haemorrhage in 1994
