Product Description

Amazon.com

Tutored at a young age by no less than guitar whiz Les Paul and blues legend T-Bone Walker, Steve Miller's life seemed destined to be dominated by music. Still, Miller's evolution from 1960s white-boy Chicago blues journeyman to '70s Top 40 hit machine was meteoric. Building on the success of his mainstream breakthrough The Joker, Miller's mastery of the indelibly catchy pop song yielded not only the radio-staple title track (since successfully revived by Seal), but an almost embarrassing wealth of other deceptively simple, hook-laden songs (including the standout "Wild Mountain Honey" as well as the hit singles "Take the Money and Run" and "Rock'n Me") to make Eagle play more like a greatest hits album than a standard collection of songs. This is Miller at his '76 pop-perfectionist peak, and one of the decade's most enduring surprises. --Jerry McCulley

Customer Reviews

Fly like an eagle goes well together with the wild mountain honey.
John van Maris
It's very nice to have the 3 bonus tracks on the CD, and the DVD has a 5.1 mix of the original 12 track album as well as a nice 30 minute documentary.
Gordon Pfannenstiel
Put his music on, and I can almost guarantee you, you WILL be feeling better by the end of the album!

Format: Audio CD
I was 18 when this album came out and since that high school to college transition is the time when music is a big part of your life, it was great hearing this again. Going through the usual "upgrades" in media over the years, say 8-track, to album, to maybe cassette and ultimately to CD made it expensive to keep buying the same music over and over. This means that a lot of people will be playing "greatest hits" CDs, since it is reckoned to be the most economic way to go for many. The problem is that some great music will never be played on the radio, and therefore never be included on a compilation. So when I hit play on this new disc set, it was refreshing that 30-year-old music can sound so "new". There are some fine songs on this album that you just never hear on "classic rock" radio.

On the technical side, incase it was not so clear (it wasn't to me), this set has two discs. The first is a standard stereo CD of the album with 3 additional tracks. The second disc is a DVD which has the same album (minus the three extra tracks) in 5.1 audio. I was worried that I needed a SACD player to hear the 5.1 rendering, but no, just a digitally interfaced DVD player and receiver. Besides the audio-only album, the DVD has a very interesting interview with Miller talking about the album, and delving a bit into his youth (he got guitar lessons from Les Paul and T-Bone Walker in his house as a pre-teen!) and how he evolved as a musician. There is a concert performance from 2005 rendered in 5.1 that can be considered a "best of" of Miller's work. For blues aficionados, he does a set of some blues standards that show off a part of Miller many might not be aware of... great stuff for guitar fans.

Format: Audio CD
We all know that this is a classic album, but how does the 5.1 mix hold up? Well, to start off with, my biggest gripe is that 'Space Intro', the original opening track, is NOT EVEN ON THIS CD! You hear a few seconds of it, then the title track starts. On top of that, the title track is the short version! When I pay ($) for a newly remastered album, I want the orignal album - Is that too much to ask?!?!
As far as the mix, the sound quality is very good and the mix is clean and spatious, but the rear channels have an incredible amount of hiss as times, the only time I've ever heard this on a DTS disc.
In summary, if you like the album, you'll like this, but let the buyer beware. Recommended with some strong reservations...

I should've paid more attention to the other comments concerning the deletion of the song, "Intro" before the song Fly Like An Eagle.
Do the people who made this DTS Surrond CD fall asleep when the disc was being mastered? To leave out the song "Intro" shows they don't care about the product and probably never listened to the complete version which has the song "Intro."
Anyone who purchased the disc should get their money back or if they ever redo the disc please include "Intro" and send us a free copy!

Okay..

I'm dating myself...but I remember "the Joker" and thinking Steve Miller was cool...but that album....didn't really do much for me....then "Fly like an Eagle" came out...and Kicked my BUTT! It was an amazing slice of guitar pop and the follow up "Book of Dreams" which was recorded at the same time....wow...Steve was on a once in a lifetime roll!

30 years later...we are offered a fabulous sounding remastered CD with a few bonus tracks...which is great...

NOW ..the DVD is off the hook! A 2 hour concert....that's right..all the old chestnuts...surprise guests ...some cool blues jamming...WOW...and on top of that a "making of" portion of the DVD which is as good as the CLASSIC ALBUM series..with STeve talking about the history of the recording etc etc...just wonderful...and all for under $20!!

Trust me...if you have the CD and you're wondering if you should spring for the "30th Anniversary" edition...DO IT!! I'm watching Steve pick away on his acoustic while discussing James Cotton and "Sweet Marie"...how cool!!!

The album is obvious a classic this review is for the DVD-Audio that sellers are listing item as. I purchased two they were both DTS-CD don't get me wrong it still sounds good but if you want a DVD-Audio disc ask before you purchase.
MOST OF TRACK 1 "SPACE INTRO" IS LEFT OUT ON THE DTS-CD RELEASE.
DID THEY THINK NO ONE WOULD NOTICE?

What a fantastic CD/DVD set! The CD is just as I remember the album, plus the fantastic bonus tracks. The DVD is something else again!
With full length concert footage from a show in San Francisco, an interview with Steve Miller & a new, Dolby 5.1 mix of the album, no music fan should be without this historic album, period.

Format: Audio CD
First off, before the "review", I'd encourage everyone who likes any form of rock, blues, swing, jazz, etc...to listen to this CD and more importantly, check out Steve Miller in the bonus live-in-concert DVD, before you write off Steve Miller--as many music reviewer snobs have--as some dopey guy with sunglasses who wrote "that Joker song", and calls himself a "space cowboy" and sings about `smoking and toking'. If your only knowledge of The Steve Miller Band is `The Joker'--as was the case for me several years ago--do yourself a favor and check this CD/DVD out!! Judging Steve Miller by only `The Joker' is like judging The Who by `Squeezebox', or Pink Floyd by `Mother'. (Giving the Grateful Dead their due), "jam bands" Dave Matthews Band and Phish are original, but they did not invent the "Jam Band" concept. After watching `Fly Like an Eagle', `Dance, Dance, Dance'(evoking images of Dave Matthews and Boyd Tinsley's many guitar/violin jams), `Shu Ba Da Du Ma Ma Ma Ma' and `Tore Down', I think you'll agree Steve Miller deserves every bit of his "Father of the Jam Band" title.

(1) The CD: It was a great CD then, and even better now, with the re-mastered tracks. Masterful rock music only gets better with age. Miller was way ahead of his time in 1976(much like Pink Floyd were in '73 with "Dark Side of the Moon"'s groundbreaking sampling and looping effects), and you can hear it on 'Fly Like an Eagle's `Space Intro', with the echoplex delay effect used with the synthesizer.

(2) The 3 previously un-released demos of 'Take the Money and Run', Fly Like an Eagle' and `Rockin' Me' are a rare glimpse of how a brilliant composition usually starts out bare and unimpressive.
