this is a great album you know why??, because even though it was 1993, the steve miller band was still sounding like it was the 1970's, when i first heard the song "wide river" i was blown away!!, i mean the melody and lyrics where pure vintage!!, remember that this was the time bands like nirvana, pearl jam, guns n'roses and even old timers like aerosmith where on top and all had great albums that year, but even though wide river never became that popular, it still reminded a lot of people that great music never dies, to me it was one of the great album the came out of the class of '93, maybe a lot of people may not agree with me, or just maybe i'm an old fashion guy who still enjoys good music!!
p.s. cry,cry,cry is another great song, with a bluesy sound and great guitar!!

WIDE RIVER is a great latter-day album from the Steve Miller Band. Even though it was recorded in 1993, it still sounds like 1977 never ended when you listen to it. Anything on this album would have been right at home on GREATEST HITS 1974-1978, with the music still sounding like a pop version of the Allman Brothers Band's BROTHERS AND SISTERS. The fact that Miller, like most 70s rockers, advocates sanctions on Indonesia in retaliation for that country's trumped-up drug-smuggling conviction of a young Australian tourist makes this CD/cassette an essential purchase for both your ears AND your conscience.

This is an excellent CD and does sound like the SMB from the mid 70s. In terms of the discography and his collected works, I personally think the top 5 are: Fly Like An Eagle, The Joker, Book of Dreams, Sailor and this CD.

If you enjoy Fly Like An Eagle, Book of Dreams or The Joker, you'll like this CD. What's a shame is his record company (with the exception of the 30th anniv. "Fly") has not remastered his major works and you can't even purchase this from Amazon.

If you like Steve Miller you will like this album. It's got a little elec drum/techno sounding to it but overall good songs. If you like Steve you will like this album.

This band has always been terrific in my book....this album sounds like '70s music...not the stuff that was around in the early '90s....

This is a 90's release with a 70's Steve Miller feel. June 1993 marked the release of the album, Wide River. Added to Ben Sidran and his band were Ben's son, Leo, session guitarist David Denny, and the unbelievable harmonica player, Norton Buffalo. This album features a similar rock/pop/blues mix as exemplified in much of Steve's earlier work.

This is an upbeat pop offering by Miller with many great riffs. I put it among his top albums. A feel good, have a cold beer on the deck, party album. You will find yourself singing along, not even noticing, but who cares. This is a fun album.
