Steve Miller Band

The Steve Miller Band is an American rock band formed in 1966 in San Francisco, California. The band is led by Steve Miller on guitar and lead vocals. It is best known today for a string of (mainly) mid- to late-1970s hit singles that are staples of classic rock radio, as well as several earlier psychedelic rock albums. Miller left his first band to move to San Francisco and form the Steve Miller Blues Band. Shortly after Harvey Kornspan negotiated the band’s landmark contract with Capitol Records in 1967, the band shortened its name to the Steve Miller Band. In February 1968, the band recorded its debut album, Children of the Future

Steve Miller: J50: The Evolution of The Joker (2CD)

Read "J50: The Evolution of The Joker (2CD)" reviewed by Doug Collette

There is no shortage of throwaway songs on Steve Miller Band albums early--Brave New World (Capitol, 1969)), Your Saving Grace (Capitol,1969)--or late--Circle of Love (Capitol, 1981), Abracadabra (Capitol, 1982). But there had never been a piece of fluff positioned as the centerpiece of one of his long-players until The Joker (Capitol, 1973) came out,

Cimarron 615 and Poco: This Country Rocks!

Read "Cimarron 615 and Poco: This Country Rocks!" reviewed by Doug Collette

When Poco formalized the marriage of country music with rock and roll via Pickin' Up The Pieces (Epic, 1969)--after the first convergence of the genres on the Byrds' Sweetheart of the Rodeo (Columbia, 1968), the quintet emphasized improvisation in a way that's been lost during the evolution of contemporary country (although it's now the foundation of ...

The Beatles Get Back Apple2022 Following Thanksgiving weekend 2021's much-ballyhooed Disney+ streaming premiere of Peter Jackson's The Beatles: Get Back, the announcement of its physical release came off slightly anti-climactic. The prospective excitement was further dampened by the fact no additional content was to be included over and above the ...

Steve Miller: Live! Breaking Ground August 3, 1977

Read "Live! Breaking Ground August 3, 1977" reviewed by Doug Collette

Given the careerist bent of Steve Miller around the time of Live! Breaking Ground: August 3, 1977, not to mention the popularity of concert releases in the wake of Frampton Comes Alive! (A&M,1976), it is altogether surprising the Space Cowboy did not issue a formal concert album until 1983. Miller came back from a self-imposed hiatus ...
