John Miller - Biding my time LP
« on: March 26, 2022, 08:28:57 PM »
I was at an old friend's home today. His college aged son recently started collecting vinyl so the two of them have been going out and purchasing records. He knows I play guitar so he put this on today and said "I think you'd like this one". Sounded fantastic and when I saw the album cover I was stunned - is that John Miller?????

Hi rra,
Welcome to Weenie Campbell! Yup, that was me, a good long while ago. I'm glad you enjoyed the album.
All best,
Johnm

FYI, I found the release date, 1979, and the track list on Discogs:

They Can't Take That Away From Me ----- 3:26
Lady Be Good ----- 1:58
Liza ----- 2:48
Blah, Blah, Blah ----- 2:24
I Got Rhythm ----- 1:12
Our Love Is Here To Stay ----- 2:32
The Man I Love ----- 2:11
Biding My Time ----- 2:15
Fascinating Rhythm ----- 1:49
Nice Work If You Can Get It ----- 3:07
Of Thee I Sing ----- 2:18
Embraceable You ----- 3:03
Love Walked In  ----- 1:35

In the Discogs marketplace there are also 17 for sale from US, Canada, Europe, Australia, Japan and China, all reasonably priced (altho I don't know the exchange rate for Yen).

Enjoy!

This was the first album that I heard John's playing on. It was lent to me by Duck Baker who recommended it highly. It's a terrific album and completely blew me away. From time to time I sometimes think I'm getting pretty good on the guitar, then I go back to John's version of  I Got Rhythm and try to play it. It soon puts me in my place :-) Seriously, there is some amazing playing on this album.
All the Best,
Ned

I wish Rounder would reissue some of their older catalog.

Hi all,
If you like fingerstyle arrangements of Jazz Standards and songs from the Great American Songbook, you might like my CD "Hey There". You can listen to a couple of samples from it at my website, johnmillerguitar.com, in the Recordings section. And U. S. residents can order it from my website as well. Unfortunately, the price of international postage makes sales outside the U. S. prohibitively expensive to send.
All best,
Johnm

I notice that there are several copies for sale of the Oak Publications Fingerpicking Gershwin by John from 1981 with some for not too ridiculous a price through AbeBooks;
