Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Greatest-hits collections often deprive the listener of the chance to experience an artist's true scope of talent. Not so with Steve Miller--his strength has always been more in crafting an occasional blast of FM-radio heaven rather than a dozen solid album tracks. Greatest Hits 1974-78 chronicles the best singles from Miller's most successful years, after he veered from Haight-Ashbury bluesy trippiness to more accessible blues-based pop-rock. There are the slippery grooves of "The Joker" and "Fly Like an Eagle," and there's the air-guitar-beckoning riff rock of "Take the Money and Run," "Jungle Love," "Rock n'Me," and "Jet Airliner." Don't expect groundbreaking art, expect references to the "pompatus of love" and instant gratification. Requisite listening at the classic-rock keg party. --Neal Weiss

Product Description

The Joker; Fly Like an Eagle; Jet Airliner; Jungle Love; Take the Money and Run; Swingtown; Rock 'n Me, and so on. Great collection!

Customer Reviews

This CD brings back great memories of the 70s and 80s.
Wounded Dove
I recommend this CD to anyone who enjoys rock music and it's definitely a must for any fan of this group -- you won't be disappointed!
Sharklady
A bunch of really good songs with not much in the way of "filler".

If I was Steve Miller, i would have been appalled with the way the record company edited down all of these great tracks. What the heck were you thinking Capitol? Every song is edited even the classics like "the joker" and "jet airliner". The best part of "jet airliner" is the awesome opening guiitar solo, well thanks to Capitol Records they edited most of it out.It sounds terrible.
Don't waste your money on this highly edited album.
If you want Steve Miller Band's greatest hits, I suggest you get
Steve Miller Band "young Hearts"-the complete Greatest hits.
Yes It might cost you a few bucks more BUT you get the full length versions of all songs and it is digitally remastered in stereo

Sure, it may have their greatest hits, but they aren't the full versions, most of them are shortened, including Jet Airliner, fly like an eagle, the joker, and others. You're better off buying the original albums, Book of dreams, Fly like an eagle, and The Joker.

You love Steve Miller, your vinyl is wore out. Why not get the greatest hits on CD? They put the old radio cuts on this release. "Take the Money and Run" is shortened. And "Jet Airliner" is censored. Did the producers think we wouldn't notice?

Format: Audio CD
During the five year period covered by this album (actually six, since "The Joker" was originally released in 1973) Steve Miller recorded as many great singles as any American rock artist. His career peak is captured perfectly by this album, which contains nearly every Steve Miller song you're likely to hear on classic rock radio. What is surprising is the diversity of sounds. You'll hear everything from guitar jams, keyboard solos, country stomps and even a little blues. This album lacks only 1982's "Abracadabra" and a couple of late 60's classics like "Living in the U.S.A." Overall, a fine collections for those who want the peaches from Steve Miller's tree.

"Greatest Hits" is good. No way is this the artist's best, though. I would definitely recommend each and every one of his albums before this. Yes, there's some edits here. Yes, "Jet Airliner" is censored. No, "Space Cowboy" and "Living in the USA" aren't found here. No, "Winter Time" was not a "hit". These factors make this a three star album. VERY casual fans will enjoy it, because most only purchase compilations. But if you want to dig deeper, but not buy every note (even though you should), get "Anthology". Don't even get the box set- its set list is way too confused, and the inclusion of several recordings made before Steve was a teenager does not serve the listener well. To the reviewer who said that Miller was the worst vocalist ever- I don't think so, and perhaps you should go back and ask yourself why this album is currently rated the number 800 selling album on amazon.com (this comp is a quarter- century old, and Miller hasn't had a legitimate "hit" since the 80's ("Wide River" doesn't count).

This is a piece of history. It is something to be cherished and listened to on occasion. Nothing aggressive here, just good ol' fashioned rock and roll. Plenty of good vibes.

If you were a 70s child, you'll love this. But it's refreshing to know that today's youth seem to like it too. "The Joker" (where the lyrics in the title of this review came from, FYI) was one of the most laid back, witty, and enjoyable songs from that era that will bring fond memories to those who were there the first time around and smiles to just about everyone else (who can resist the "wolf whistle" on the guitar on this one). "Fly Like An Eagle" would have sounded mediocre in lesser hadns, but Steve Miller and co. make it worth repeated listening. "Take The Money and Run" is also a catchy story song about two losers who go on a robbing spree. You gotta love any tune clever enough to rhyme "facts is" and "taxes" in the lyrics. But enough of this, buy and enjoy for yourself.

The Steve Miller Band Greatest Hits 1974-78 is a lively and catchy collection of blues-based rock songs from the mid- to late 1970's. The fastest upbeat music (Swingtown comes to mind) lends itself to some great dancing. This musical period took place after front man Miller's bluesy days of Haight-Ashbury, and it was when some of his most popular blues-rock music, such as "The Joker" and "Fly Like An Eagle," became popular hits.
Some of the tunes on this CD are catchy; you will start singing along and moving with the music of the blues-based pop rock. For me, this album brings back a time when a lot of great bands such as The Eagles, Bob Seger, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and more entered the music scene.
My favorites on this CD are Swingtown, The Joker, Fly Like An Eagle, Dance Dance Dance, and Wild Mountain Honey. Dance, Dance, Dance makes me think of a time when my granddad would take my grandmother to a country barn dance. Wild Mountain Honey is my favorite. When I listen to it, I can escape the daily routine of life in the big city and my mind floats away to the Smoky Mountains of my youth.
If you like good blues-based rock that brightens your mood and makes you want to dance, Steve Miller Band Greatest Hits 1974-78 is worth purchasing and adding to your audio library.
