The rest of the songs are not quite as good, but they aren't terrible, either.

The Steve Miller Band's twelfth studio album entitled Abracadabra was released in June of 1982.
After experiencing extremely disappointing sales of his 1981 album Circle of Love, Steve decided to release another album right away with Abracadabra. Steve (as always on guitars and vocals but suffering from some writer's block as he only had two new tunes for the album) retained the band on Circle of Love (bass player Gerald Johnson, drummer Gary Mallaber and keyboard player Byron Allred) and added two new guitarists Kenny Lee Lewis (who is still in the band today) and John Massaro (the two wrote much of the album aside two tracks) and record Abracadabra at Capitol Record Studios in early 1982 with help from ex-bass player Lonnie Turner and ex-guitarist Greg Douglass (both of whom last recorded with Steve in 1977 on Book of Dreams). The result is an album which some cry "sell out" and others say "gave Steve his last hit". I think it's a great album as I found out when I first got the cassette tape in September of 1987 (alongside The Beatles' Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band to begin my first year of Junior High School).
The opening "Keep Me Wondering Why" is a great rocker which was written by Kenny Lee Lewis. Next is the album's title track (written by Steve himself) and is the big hit from the album. The song would prove to be his last #1 pop hit in the summer/fall of 1982 and here it's in its full long version with outro and at over 5 minutes the longest track on the album. Next is the Lonnie Turner/Greg Douglass penned rocker "Something Special" which is another winner. We follow with the album's second single "Give It Up" (also penned by Steve Miller himself) and sounds like a slowed down version of "Heart Like a Wheel" but a great song.

In 1982 it had been a while since Steve Miller Band had a hit of any note and he got one in the tital cut of this album-and
it WAS a big one!The opener "Keep Me Wondering Why" is a slightly
rockier varrition on the tital track's sound while "Give It Up"
is a bouncy,carnivalesqe little rocker tossed off for good measure.Beach Boys harmonies abound on "Something Special"
while casually rocking pop number like "Never Say No" and "Cool Magic" make "Abracadabra" classic Steve Miller in the same potent mix as "Fly Like An Eagle","The Joker" and his other classic albums!

Format: Audio CD
"Abracadabra" was Steve Miller's last chart hit (and a number one, at that). The album of the same name was the last Miller album actually worth owning. Miller is known for his blues stylings, but ultimately he is a 1970s era classic rocker at heart. With "Abracadabra," he attempted to insert some new wave flourishes into his music, with mixed results. After the big hit, the album's other highlights include "Keeps Me Wondering Why," "Give it Up" and "Cool Magic." Nothing of great consequence, but then again Miller's albums were more about having fun than thinking real hard.
Overall, "Abracadabra" is far from being Miller's best album but might be worth owning for ardent fans.

While much of this album is not Steve Miller's best work, it is certainly ok, I got this album, mainly for the songs "Keeps Me Wondering Why" and the full length version of "Abracadabra". The rest of the songs are not quite as good, but they aren't terrible, either. Of course, if you are a die-hard Steve Miller fan, you will want this, the casual fan probably wouldn't want this.

This was a repurchase for me. I had the original LP when it first came out 100 years ago. As a long time Steve Miller fan I found this album to be one his most unusual efforts. The title song is excellent, but the rest of the album is made up of songs that have a strong 80's tone, or as I would call it "fluffiness." I like the album and most of the songs, but what keeps me wondering (pun) is how much better it might have been if those fluff songs had been done with a Miller's blues abilities. Regardless, this is a worthwhile album and a must have in your Steve Miller collection.

I have been a Steve Miller fan for many years, but had never purchased this item. Glad I added it to my collection. Besides the title cut, "Never Say No", "Cool Magic", and "Keeps Me Wondering Why" are well made songs. Steve has done so much music in his life. His "Greatest Hits" is good, but make sure to purchase some of his works (Anthology, The Joker, Living In The 20th Century) to find some of The Steve Miller Band that radio might have missed.

We happened to be watching a DVD / movie & the song Abracadabra was playing in the background, the song was also featured in the movie Burt Wonderstone with Steve Carrell, and I said I want the CD with it. I have always loved / enjoyed the song, but had no idea or clue that it was put out by The Steve Miller Band. So, I ordered it to add to our CD / Music collection & not only have myself & my wife been enjoying but so have our 4 children.
