It's a near-perfect set list for any Steve Miller Band fan starting with Jet Airliner, ending with Rock'N Me, and filled with the hits throughout.
The performances are excellent as you would expect from such a seasoned touring band. The Austin City Limits cameras do a great job of bringing you into the action with multiple camera angles and deft editing.
The "extras" - including behind-the-scenes footage and a full interview with Steve Miller are cool as well.
before you say NOT helpful because I'm not rating this 5 stars ... here is my reason. I am a huge Steve Miller fan, and I do love the show. From editing to the filming and performance all would be 5 stars. My problem is that this DVD is one of the worst I've seen since the early days of Platinum Entertainment with their pixelated messes. This isn't close to broadcast quality and goodness even decades old Austin City Limits DVDs look great... this isn't crisp, well saturated or anything close to a broadcast quality and its just too bad because the concert is a lot of fun ...it just looks second rate. Its frustrating and looks like pushed film or poor lighting but its so odd because although its a new venue for Austin City Limits...they are first class...so I assume this comes down to poor DVD authoring and decisions made to cut corners at that end. I did check and it is a very LOW Bitrate...
I'm still glad they made it , I'm glad I have it ...but am confused by the low res production.
UPDATE: I downloaded an HD version on iTunes that looks terrific, why this DVD is so poor is still a mystery and I wish they'd release on Blu Ray...it's a terrific show.
I attended the (Austin, Tx) Moody Theather Live version of Steve's 1st visit to perform & tape an Austin City Limits segment. This DVD does not disappoint. This was one of the best shows (band was tight) and sound acoustics I've ever had the pleasure of attending.
Play this at your next party and watch the fun begin. As they do in Austin - Come early, Be Loud, and Stay Late. I have enjoyed reliving this amazing concert...and the best thing about this former Texan, Steve Miller, is he gives back to the community by raising over $500,000 for Kids Rock Free, a "free" music school in Corona, Ca.
To see a video preview as it aired, visit PBS website - Austin City Limits Program in Oct 2011

Interview With Steve Miller
Steve and his band are in top form and obviously enjoy themselves immensely. The set list contains 20 songs including all the big hits. Nobody should be disappointed with the set list. The show is filmed in The Moody Theater which is the new venue for Austin City Limits. A great concert and highly recommended.
