It's been 50 years since Steve Miller Band's first two Capitol Records albums were released in 1968, and now Miller and Capitol/UMe release of the legendary Steve Miller Band's first nine studio albums in an unprecedented new 180-gram vinyl box set collection called Complete Albums Volume 1 (1968-1976). Spanning the band's first studio album, Children of the Future, through 1976's multiplatinum masterpiece Fly Like an Eagle, the albums have all been remastered.

Listening to these albums in chronological order, one can hear a stream of consciousness throughout Steve’s career. Each album is like a chapter in a novel where one chapter leads up to the next. Although each album stands on its own, yet also leads to the next as if vaguely hinting towards the next chapter. The only exception to this is side one of Rock Love. It just sounds like a different book, but fortunately side two returns to the flow that takes you into Recall the Beginning. Unfortunately the last and most important chapter is missing.
Book of Deams has always felt like part two of Fly Like an Eagle and for some reason it was left off the box set. Hence the four stars (although I would give it 4 1/2 stars if I could). Even the cover of the box set is the cover of Book of Dreams. I assume it has to do with marketing the next box set, yet it makes this set feel incomplete.
I would hope that like many box sets released recently that eventually each album will be released on its own, so I’ll hang on to my original until then. When and if that happens I will purchase Book of Dreams and place it into this set where it rightfully belongs.
