Another excellent album which didn't find an audience, Chuck Leavell of the Allman Brothers Band plays keyboards and writes an effective paragraph on the back cover stating that, in 1974, he worked with Randall Bramblett on two Greg Allman tours, and that it turned out to be "one of the most musically satisfying points in my career." There are some very big names helping out on the excellent nine songs that make up That Other Mile. Beautiful keyboard sounds — the kind that Merl Saunders pours over his discs — permeate the quality songwriting here. The title track and "Driftin' Into a Woman's Arms" become outstanding numbers through the jazz, blues, and pop that color these performances. Paul Hornsby's organ is perfect playing against Leavell's electric piano — and the song "Driftin' Into a Woman's Arms" does drift on and on with backing vocals and slide guitar that remove all hype from Leavell's brash liner notes. Steve Tyrell's production is simply wonderful, as are the strings by Elton John conductor Paul Buckmaster. With contributions from the Brecker Brothers, sax solos by Randall Bramblett, and truly heartfelt vocals, the mystery here is why this artist doesn't have a deeper catalog? That Other Mile is pleasant and cries out for repeated spins.
