The Rock is the third album from The Frankie Miller Band. It features The Memphis Horns and The Edwin Hawkins Singers who supply backing vocals on classic songs like, "A Fool in Love", which enjoyed considerable airplay on both sides of the Atlantic and was a sizeable hit in the USA. "Ain't Got No Money" became the album’s most covered song with notable versions from Cher, Chris Farlowe and Bob Seger. The song, "Drunken Nights In The City", was written for his late-night drinking buddy Jimmy Johnstone, the former (Celtic FC) Scottish footballer.

The album was recorded in sight of the prison of Alcatraz in San Francisco, Miller commented that it was only music that had saved him that kind of fate and dedicated the song, The Rock, to the plight of prisoners, a reference to his 2nd cousin Jimmy Boyle.
