Best known as the drummer in Jimi Hendrix's Band of Gypsys, Buddy Miles also had a lengthy solo career that drew from rock, blues, soul, and funk in varying combinations. He joined his fathers band the Bebops at the age of 12 and then went on to also play drums and provide backing vocals for the likes of Ruby & The Romantics, the Ink Spots, the Delfonics, Mike Bloomfields Electric Flag and Carlos Santana.
ALL THE FACES OF BUDDY MILES was Buddy’s fifth solo album and followed up on the success of the 1972 "Carlos Santana & Buddy Miles Live!” album.
This album was produced by legendary Motown producer and soul singer JOHNNY BRISTOL who also produced the likes of Marvin Gaye, Gladys Knight & The Pips, Stevie Wonder and Edwin Starr. ALL THE FACES OF BUDDY MILES was released at the same time as Johnny’s massive Soul and Disco classic Hang On In There Baby.
PULL YOURSELF TOGETHER gained Buddy the #83 slot in the R&B charts upon it’s release. I’M JUST A KISS AWAY is a huge hit amongst those in the UK Rare Groove and Japanese Free Soul scenes.
