Miller Anderson issued his sole solo album, "Bright City" in 1971, featuring songs that were not considered suitable for Hartley's repertoire. Lineup featured among others Mick Weaver on keyboards plus the bassist (Gary Thain) and reed players of Hartley's. Plus a string section. Pretty melodies, acoustic guitars, fluegel horn & flute - no doubt mirroring Miller's interest in a softer, more acoustic brand of music.
But "High Tide, High Water" and "Nothing In This World" were something else: two riffing electric guitars (the other deftly handled by Neil Hubbard), wah-wah, and a fat, forceful organ. Extended workouts - true timepieces.
