Brave Old Steve by Ross Blaufarb

Before Steve Miller's mainstream breakout with The Joker in 1973 he had a whole other career as one of the pioneers of the San Francisco sound, playing shoulder to shoulder with the Jefferson Airplane and The Grateful Dead. His early canon, released between 1968 and 1972, consists of seven records. The first two, Children of the Future and Sailor, featured Boz Scaggs in the band. Brave New World from 1969 is the third. For many fans this album launched his most important and musically satisfying era -- when he was young and bold enough to take musical and conceptual risks (and some LSD, no doubt) and hadn't yet become a brand of the good-time cruisin' middle class.

The songs on Brave New World combine Miller's signature blues influence and distinctive, almost conversational vocal style with a psychedelic hippie sensibility of peace, love, and cosmic adventure. Blues grittiness with soaring triple-tracked harmonies evoking new age hope might seem at odds. But from the eponymous first track's rocket blast-off that segues into futuristic industrial guitar chiming, this album takes you on a challenging interstellar journey with equal parts down-home humor and wistful heaviness.

Sadly underrated late drummer, vocalist and contributing songwriter Tim Davis and bassist Lonnie Turner, who also pens the occasional tune, support Miller, along with co-producer (with Miller) Glyn Johns. Legendary session pianist Nicky Hopkins adds his ennobling accompaniment on grand piano. Guild 12-string-drenched "Seasons" by Miller and long-time collaborator Ben Sidran evokes a sunlit walk in nature with heartfelt, but un-preachy lyrics about the cycle of life floating above the acoustic guitar wall of sound.

I just purchased all five Edsel 2012 remasters of Steve Miller's early LPs from a local retailer. If you already own the capitol editions, issued in the 90s, I would not recommend investing in these newer versions. I compared all five Edsel CDs, including Brave New World, to the earlier Capitol CDs and also to the original US LPs. Overall the sound seems fine with clear detail and pristine presentation. Unfortunately the EQ for the new discs seems overtly bright and the high end dominates the listening experience. The earlier capitol versions have a much more natural sound. Also, played side by side, the Capitol versions more closely represent the sound of the original LPs (to my ears). That being said, the new Edsel issues are not terrible, just not worth replacing the ones you may already own. These new versions may be fine for the less picky ear or someone just getting acquainted with the music. If you are more tuned in to this kind of detail or you already know the material well, I'd go with the Capitol CDs from the 90s or original LPs. I always look for this kind of review if I'm contemplating the purchase of a reissue. If you are interested in what the music or songs sound like, or the skill and style of the players on the recording , I'm thinking others here have or will described that very well.

This was not my first album as a teenager, by far, but it was my first Steve Miller album. Steve Miller's third album, Brave New World, is among the best rock and roll ever. This album, which I first got when it was originally released, has fueled a 34 year love for his music. In all that time, it still remains my favorite rock and roll album ever.

Though the original vinyl has long since been lost, every time I have rebuilt my music collection as I raised a family, Brave New World was always the first album or CD I purchased.

There are only 9 songs on the album, but there are no fillers - this is all great stuff. I am not sure why it is, but the title track, Brave New World, has never made it into any of Steve's many, many "greatest hits" compilations even though it is one of his best works ever. Of course, 6 songs out of 9 on this album regularly show up in the compiliations: Celebration Song, Kow Kow Calculator, Seasons, Space Cowboy, LT`s Midnight Dream, and My Dark Hour. My Dark Hour, by the way, includes Paul McCartney on guitar as Paul Ramone.

So with 6 out of 9 songs considered to be among his greatest hits - and the other three songs are great music as well - this album belongs in every Steve Miller Band or other classic rock and roll collection, no matter how many versions of The Joker and Fly Like An Eagle you have in the compilations.

Updated: Just for the record, track 5 is not Kow Kow. It is Kow Kow Calculator. While the track was called Kow Kow on some of the compilations later on, the original name, as it was on the LP and still is shown on this CD, is Kow Kow Calculator.

Brave New World, the third offering by the still-new Steve Miller Band, was released in 1969. Can't you tell? References to celebrations and tripping abound, making this one of the sunniest, trippiest album of the psychedelic era. (Even the album cover is sunny yellow!) The opening of the title track (and the album) is a blast - literally, a bomb blast which hearalds the start of both a fresh, enjoyable tune and a bright new beginning for the world at large. Then, great drumming by Tim Davis kickstarts "Celebration Song," another wonderful vision of a world at play. "Got Love 'Cause You Need It" sounds like it's sung by Miller's infamous Gangster of Love character, full of danger and seduction, while "Seasons" is a gorgeous acoustic ballad, as heartfelt a track as Stevie Guitar has ever recorded. Nice! "Space Cowboy," of course, is the albums BIG HIT, complete with Moog synthesizer space sounds, and a rare, excellent guitar solo from Steve M! (The primary focus of Brave New World is on the material, not solos.) Literally too, too far out! "LT's Midnight Dream" is a fantasy feast, with lyrics like "got a bulldog in my learjet, gonna teach him how to fly"! Too much! Paul McCartney of the Beatles contributes drums, bass, and vocals to the blues-rock "My Dark Hour," (he is billed as Paul Ramon; yes, that is where the band The Ramones got their name!), while "Can't You Hear Your Daddy's Heartbeat?" is a love song in double-quick time and "Kow Kow" (also known as "Kow Kow Calqulator" on the anthologies) combines more fantasy lyrics with quotes from Bobby Blue Bland's "Turn on your Love Light". Outasite!! So, if your looking for something of Steve Miller's beyond the usual, well-crafted 70's material, give Brave New World a listen or two. You may want to start your own celebration!!!
