Buddy Miles - More Miles Per Gallon - (1975)
The title of the album suits the content as it's a great disc for driving. Nearly every track is upbeat and features a funky bass line. Miles starts the album strong with the two power tracks "Rockin' and Rollin' On The Streets of Hollywood", and, "Do It To Me" - a thinly veiled reference to booty calling your ex. The album continues to chug along until the 7th track "Livin' In The Right Space" - a soulful ballad shmeared in reverb and fluffy love. It stays weak after that but whatever's lost at the end is made up for by Miles's solid drumming and tight band.
