Although Steve Miller had been rocking and rolling since the late 1960s, he experienced some of the greatest chart success of his career during the mid-1970s, as exemplified by this GREATEST HITS 1974-1978 compilation. Nearly all 14 of the album's tracks have become classic rock radio standards over the years.
This period in particular saw Miller streamline his early blues rock sound into something more mainstream-friendly. With not a single weak track in the bunch, the creme de la creme would have to include the tasty rockers "Jungle Love," "Take the Money and Run," "Rock N' Me," "The Joker," "Fly Like An Eagle," and "Jet Airliner."
Artist Overview
The Steve Miller Band has gone through a number of chameleonic changes over the decades. Miller started out as a blues-obsessed guitarist and led his band through a series of classic dreamy psychedelic albums in the '60s. Later in the '70s, he adopted a more accessible, slightly blues-inflected pop-rock hook bonanza and hit commercial paydirt with hits such as "The Joker" and "Fly Like an Eagle". In the early '80s he briefly took on a new wave tinge--and even topped the charts with the synthy "Abracadabra"--before returning once more to his blues-rock roots.
