Two CDs of concert material showcasing Steve Miller at his best.
The first CD showcases the Joker CD, while disc two covers the Fly like an Eagle Period.
Any fan will tell you that this was his best period, both in songwriting and musicianship.
These two discs are the Steve Miller Band as they were meant to be heard.
Live and raw. Funky and tight.
Here is a band (the first disc, from DeeCee in 1973) that personified the term "jam band",
but not in the put-ya-to-sleep way that some "jam bands" do.
And check out the early, not-yet-fully-developed version of Fly Like An Eagle...awesome!
With an expanded roster, including Norton Buffalo, on the second disc (NYC in '76),
they were becoming more polished, but no less spacey and mighty.
King Biscuit does a great job remastering these shows as they sound excellent.
Heavy blues influences and sounds abound while playing some of their best tunes.
There is genuine passion coming through the shows.
The finest Miller album i ever layed my eyes on...but what do i know LOL.
