I was browsing the used CD section and came across this CD deciding to give it a chance.

So, speaking as someone that never really listened to these guys before, this is positively the CD set to get if you ARE a fan of 70's style rock.

Any fan of Miller will tell you that this was a period of Miller at his best, both in songwriting and muscianship.

Two Cds of concert material from 1973 and 1976 showcasing Steve Miller at his best. The first CD showcases the Joker CD, while disc two covers the Fly like an Eagle Period. Any fan of Miller will tell you that this was a period of Miller at his best, both in songwriting and muscianship. King Biscuit does a great job remastering these shows as they sound excellent. Heavy blues influences and sounds abound while playing some of Millers best tunes. Lately, Steve Miller has seemed bored on stage while going through the motions, that is not the case here. There is genuine passion coming through the shows. This is a worthy addition to anyones CD collection to show off a tight band with great songs to play. High recommendation.

I found this most interesting! Some songs fall flat while others are excellent, and surprisingly, songs that I would have bet would sizzle when played live (example- "Space Cowboy") aren't necessarily the best.
CD1: While I'm picking on "Space Cowboy," I'll just say that this version isn't bad, it just doesn't measure up to the original. On the other hand, "Gangster of Love" is turned from a short, unfinished little ditty into the song it was destined to be- a jamming, rocking, and cool song. My favorites on CD1 have to be the one-two punch of "Living in the USA" followed by the fascinating early take on "Fly Like an Eagle"- 20 MINUTES OF PURE BLISS! The band accompanying Steve really shows their worth on these two extended jams! There are a few other treats such as "Evil" (nicely sung blues song) that make up for some of the duller moments on CD1, which is worthwhile if nothing else for the cool version of "Fly Like An Eagle" -you've got to hear this one!
CD2: The sound is more polished, which is good but sometimes not necessarily better than the rougher, bluesier sounding Steve Miller Band demonstrated in CD1 (recorded 1973). Here on CD2, 1976, he is sounding professional, but for songs like "Going to Mexico" he seems to have substituted his hard-rocking band for a more relaxed and somehow dull sound. I thought CD2 was going to be inferior to CD1 throughout, but then things (luckily) change, starting with "Mercury Blues." The band begins to rock a little harder (thankfully!) and goes into fine form with songs like "The Window.

...these two discs, especially the first, are The Steve Miller Band as they were meant to be heard. Live and raw. Funky and tight. The "hits" that were played to death on the radio were great songs, but mygawd, were they beaten into our musical psyche or what? Here is a band (the first disc, from DeeCee in 1973) that personified the term "jam band", but not in the put-ya-to-sleep way that some "jam bands" do. And check out the early, not-yet-fully-developed version of FLY LIKE AN EAGLE...awesome! With an expanded roster, including Norton Buffalo, on the second disc (NYC in '76), they were becoming more polished, but no less spacey and mighty, mighty interesting. ... I sat there and listened to this and just marveled. Yeah, this band was REALLY that good thirty years ago. Wow.

An absolute must-have for any true fan of the Steve Miller Band or even '70's arena / album rock in general for that matter. Cannot believe I've never even heard about this 2-CD King Biscuit release before. Two top of the line shows here, disc one comes from D.C. in 1973 and disc two New York City 1976. Total of 25 power-packed songs here for your late night listening pleasure. The memorable tracks seem to stick out more, like "Space Cowboy", "Gangster Of Love", "Living In The USA", his signature song "Fly Like An Eagle" (I've seen this cut bring tears to people's eyes), "Blue With A Feeling", "The Joker", "Nothing Lasts", "Wild Mountain Honey" and "Seasons". Sure beats listening to that thirty-year old aging BASF cassette that a lot of us used to record these shows on off the radio every Sunday night. Recommended.

`The King Biscuit Flower Hour Presents The Steve Miller Band' is a two-disc set showcasing concerts recorded in Washington D.C. in 1973 and New York City in 1976. Fortuitously for the Flower Hour, and us, these concerts capture Miller at a crossroads in his recording career. Disc one features Miller promoting his breakthrough 1973 release, `The Joker', although the eclectic setlist draws extensively from three of his previous albums. Disc two presents Miller in the company of an entirely revamped band (and sound) following a two-year hiatus from the road, promoting what many consider to be his finest studio production, `Fly Like An Eagle'. The two recordings document Miller's transition from a blues-rock guitar maestro, only a fret short of Eric Clapton, to a more mature, consummate, and compelling artist.

The first disc is near-and-dear to my own heart as I caught Miller on his 1973 tour (along with the talented James Cotton Blues Band) at the ornate and intimate confines of the Masonic Temple in Detroit, Michigan. It was one of over 400 concerts Miller performed in a two-year time span. I wasn't well versed in Miller's catalog at the time, but my recollections of the concert are bore out by the recording tendered here. Miller starts out with a flurry of catchy rock tunes, including 1969's `Space Cowboy', 1968's `Living In the USA', and 1970's politically-minded `Jackson-Kent Blues', which carries itself aurally as a precursor for his 1976 hit, `Rock'N Me'. While most of the tracks are penned by Miller (including `Shu Ba Da Du Ma Ma Ma Ma', `Fly Like An Eagle', and `My Dark Hour'), there is a run of covers in `Mary Lou', `Your Cash Ain't Nothin' But Trash' and even `Gangster Of Love', which Miller claimed as a personal moniker.
