Miller forsook his love of the blues for this and its sister project Book Of Dreams. In turning to mainstream pop/rock he became a huge star and developed the knack of delivering high-quality three-minute songs that were perfect for FM radio.
The album is linked by Miller's fascination with electronic sounds, sandwiched between the irresistible title track, the Bonnie and Clyde tale of 'Take The Money And Run', the irritatingly simple 'Rock 'n' Me' and the subdued 'The Window', with its quirky lyric 'ask my baby what she wants to be, she says a monkey in a tree'. His baby replies 'there's nothing greater than love', true enough. After all, it was Miller who rhymed 'northern California' with 'girls are warm yeah'.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.106) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "FLY LIKE AN EAGLE...found him combining indelible riffs, sly, catchy tunes and danceable grooves into songs that still light up rock radio."
Uncut (p.90) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "Today, FLY... sounds as set in stone as DARK SIDE OF THE MOON. What's surprising is that it seems every bit as artful, too."
Record Collector (magazine) (p.83) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "It's full of great AOR....'Wild Mountain Honey' is a beautiful, floaty, stoned piece of rock."
Uncut (magazine) (p.98) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "The title track and 'Wild Mountain Honey' are where you'll find the most twiddly synth sounds..."
Artist Bio
Steve Miller BandSteve Miller was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on October 5, 1943. His mother was an accomplished singer, and his father, Dr. George "Sonny" Miller, was a physician by profession and an amateur recording engineer in his spare time. Many members of Steve's family were musicians, and he received his first guitar at age 4. Steve put it to good use performing songs for his family and playmates.Les Paul, the inventor of the electric guitar and multi-track recording, and his wife, Mary Ford, were regular visitors at the Miller house. In fact, Steve's father was best man at their wedding. Les and Mary taught Steve his first chords when he was five years old. Steve still uses some of the techniques they taught him at that time.Between touring, managing his career, writing songs, and recording 8 albums in 65 months, Steve was exhausted. He decided to take some time off, and spent the next year and a half writing and recording the bulk of his next two albums. "Fly Like an Eagle" was released May 1976, featuring Lonnie Turner on bass and Gary Mallaber on drums. One year and one day later "Book of Dreams" was released with the addition of Byron Allred on keyboards and session work by Greg Douglass, David Denny, and Norton Buffalo. The two albums contained a string of multiple hit songs. The band was now playing arenas rather than theaters. Both albums were certified quadruple platinum. Lonnie Turner was replaced by Gerald Johnson, and the band released "Circle of Love" in 1981.
