A recording artist since 1968, Miller made eight albums for Capitol, culminating with “The Joker”, before recording the multi-million selling “Fly Like An Eagle” in 1976.
In May 1977, Steve followed this up with the album “Book Of Dreams”, another multi-million seller all around the world. The album was recorded at the same sessions as “Fly Like An Eagle” and features the hit singles “Jet Airliner”, “Jungle Love” and “Swingtown”.
The booklet of this Special Digipak Edition contains all the lyrics, a brand new note by San Francisco journalist Joel Selvin, and photos from the “Book Of Dreams” Concert Tour programme.

This new EDSEL reissue comes in a very fetching 3-way foldout card digipak featuring expanded artwork on both the front and rear – all of it in the same colour scheme as the original vinyl album. Inside the tri-gatefold - each member of the band is pictured and named for the first time - and there’s a new 16-page booklet with comprehensive liner notes by JOEL SELVIN of the San Francisco Chronicle.Read more ›
I can remember on the radio this blasting out in that summer of 77.
What a lot of people may not know is that this was actually the second album of a double set which was actually recorded one whole year before.Fly like an Eagle had come out to glorious reviews the year before .It sold approx some 6 million within that year 76.
The record company Mercury had vetoed the idea of a double album because of many reasons, one main reason being the thought that the general public would not buy a double album.
History had proved wrong , especially in 76 both 'Frampton Comes Alive and Humble Pie's 'Fillmore' had both sold in massive quantities.
Ok that's the reason and from my point of view had always believed this to be a myth.
So here's what you do .Put both albums back to back and then record them as one.
With cds this is possible for the first time .Play F.L.A.E to the end of 'The Window' listen to the disappearance of the synth and then play the start of 'Threshold' B.O.D's ok..You will need to record both albums with a program that allows both cds to be put on a playlist eg i tunes.When the synth lines fly off after the end of 'The Window '.they magically return with the start of 'Threshold' on B.O.D's . So the outro of F.L.A.E becomes the into to B.O.D's...Never believed it before until I got both albums and put this into practice.And I have to say it is bloody wonderful and to finally hear both albums as they were meant to sound is an revelation. A concept piece of sorts in so much they just go well.For the music contained in the grooves well, what can you say ?Read more ›
But the truth is that this is another great and hugely enjoyable album from Steve Miller who had been making great albums since the late sixties. This remastered edition is a joy to listen to. Every song sparkles and Millers easy voice and great guitar work shine. Buy this album and enjoy a vastly underated artist at the peak of his powers.

Not as good as Fly Like an Eagle (5*) but still well worth having. Do not like the 'special' effects on one track - how it became a hit is a mystery!Published on 6 Jan. 2013 by Alf Dundee
