Steve Miller Band Interview


It all began at the Fillmore Auditorium, where The Steve Miller Band played three sold out shows in March 2008, epic, rollicking three-hour parties featuring as many as a half dozen guests each night; from prominent associates such as Bonnie Raitt and Joe Satriani to lesser known talents like violinist Carlos Reyes or guitarist Danny Caron.

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't be misled by the two star rating.... 9 Oct 2010
Format:Audio CD
Musically, this is a five-star album, with five-star performances of five-star songs by a five-star performer and his five-star players.

Where this album loses it's otherwise highly warranted score is on the record company's (EMI/Capitol) refusal to give it the quality up-to-the-minute digital remaster it so richly deserves.

This is an epoch defining album and quite how the owners of the title deeds have overlooked this album for a good 24bit/96hz remaster is totally beyond my comprehension. As it stands this is possibly one of the very worst sounding analogue-digital transfers I've ever heard.

The above, and the fact that Capitol Records didn't even consider the albums 'Rock Love' and 'Recall The Beginning....' for CD issue absolutely proves beyond any doubt that there are no longer any people working in the higher echelons of the music business with any notion of musicality in their veins - assuming they have veins, of course.

EMI/Capitol should be absolutely ashamed of themselves.

Rock on, Steve!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Joker 3 Feb 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Joker is just a quality tune. Accept no substitute. Just the sort of stuff you need to listern to whilst relaxing and taking things easy. Do not operate heavy machinery whilst listerning to this album.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Space Cowboy Begins Countdown to Superstardom 19 Dec 2001
By Steve Vrana - Published on
Format:Audio CD
My love affair with the Steve Miller Band began in 1973 when this album was first released. I was a junior at UNL and as usual was spending way too much time hanging out at my favorite record store when "The Joker" came over the in-store stereo system. Needless to say, I left the store with a copy of the album and just recently upgraded to CD. While this is not as strong of a collection of songs as his follow-ups (Fly Like an Eagle, Book of Dreams), there is much to enjoy here besides the catchy single, "The Joker," which was his first Top 40 hit. Originals like "Sugar Babe" and the bluesy "The Lovin' Cup" are first-rate. Also, live versions of "Come On In My Kitchen" and "Evil" show the band in fine form. Casual fans might better be served by a greatest hits collection, but this is required listening for fans who want to dig into the artist's catalog a little deeper. RECOMMENDED

4.0 out of 5 stars The "new" Steve Miller HITS the airwaves! 22 Sep 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Audio CD
I'll admit up front, "The Joker" was the first song by the SMB I ever heard on the radio. Little did I know (it took a while to grow on me) that Steve Miller would become one of my favorites in the music biz. Stripping his repertoire down to R&B, this was Miller's most "pop"-style album at the time-- but it was only a foreshadowing of things to come. My faves include "Sugar Babe" (why wasn't THIS a big hit?), "Mary Lou" (some girls are just BAD news!), "Shu Ba Da Du Ma Ma Ma Ma" (Be-Bop reinvented for the 70's?), "Your Cash Ain't Nothin' But Trash" (a novelty tune that refers back to the previous "Gangster Of Love" and "Space Cowboy"--shades of Cab Calloway) and "The Joker" (which in a more musical way does the same while adding "Enter Maurice" and its twisted lyrics to the mix). FUN stuff! A great example of how persistence pays off-- it "only" took 8 albums before SMB really hit it BIG!

5.0 out of 5 stars For The Pompodous Of Love 13 Mar 2005
By Andre S. Grindle - Published on
Format:Audio CD
From my understanding the word 'pompodous' is not a word whatsoever.But it sure sounds great in the classic 70's pop/rock hit the this album's title track has become.The album opens with another terrific,like-minded Steve Miller tune called "Sugar Babe" but that's as commercial as the album gets.Steve Miller may have entered his most commcercialy furtile phase by this time but his band are still pretty devoted to gravel raw blues,R&B and even a few tablespoons of funk "Shu Ba Da Du Ma Ma Ma",a pretty silly jam with a fabulous rhythm-it's one of Miller's few forways into out and out funk."Your Cash Ain't Nothin' But Trash" tries at a similar approch with far more of a blues bent-same goes for "Mary Lou" with it's keyboard textures."The Lovin' Cup" tries at all out 12 bar blues most successfully while the album closes on the warm ballad "Something To Believe In".The two live fillers between the latter two songs are poorly recorded and I'm sure will drag this album's reviews down a bit.But still in his pre

'Fly Like An Eagle' days Steve Miller had a tight blues machine that,as showcased here could be played in a very soulful and funky way at the same time.Different but not to be ignored.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Album, But... 4 Sep 2010
By R. C. Whiteley - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I recorded The Joker off the radio back in the late '80s or early '90s. Anyway, I have loved the album ever since I made that copy off the radio. But, the cd version of the album I just got today has too much crackling in it for 1973. I have cds of music recorded in the '50s that sounds better than this cd version of The Joker. The album sleeve claims it was remastered, but that is difficult to believe! Yes, Capitol Records, give me Something To Believe In. I imagine over the next few years, there will be a proper remastering of the album. I mean, I am also finding I need to turn the volume up to a level that I normally don't reach when I listen to a new or properly remastered classic! If you have a cassette or vinyl version of The Joker, I'd wait until a new remaster is released. I love this album, so I am going to enjoy it as best I can, despite its shortcomings. I've heard Steve Miller Band music before The Joker, and I can definitely say The Joker is a great jump forward for Steve Miller and Co. Then, by the mid 1970s, Fly Like An Eagle and Book Of Dreams would make Steve Miller a superstar. But, The Joker is the album that really launched his recording career by leaps and bounds!
