5.0 out of 5 stars Last flawless Steve Miller album for awhile anyways September 15, 2010
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Revisit Of A Favorite Band! December 5, 2003
Format:Audio CD
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!

3.0 out of 5 stars Miller's last gasp as a major artist November 27, 2000
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Sound Quality February 1, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am reviewing the sound quality only. The sound is warm, it is dynamic and it is full. It sounds like someone took their time to remaster this properly. I do not detect any compression and when turned up, it just sounds...right!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Bad May 4, 2007
Format:Audio CD
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.
