This import's liner notes talk it up how Abracadabra was missing from the 1974/1978 package. Of course, the album and hit single wouldn't be released for another four years. And they infer that Steve resisted but they finally wore him down...Maybe so, and yet Abracadabra appeared on the import Greatest Hits that Steve had involvement with.
Yes, the liners mention it finally has Abracadabra! But! It's the single edit! And that's not the only edits hurting this best-of: Living In The USA is cut by 15 seconds, Swingtown is the album version with the last 20 seconds cut! Why not use the single edit if you are going to cut it?
Worse yet, the sound suffers horribly from extreme application of Noise Reduction! Advice: get the Australian import Greatest Hits(not the Polygram Int'l version that uses the rerecording of The Joker) It has the missing singles (Give It Up, Heart Like a Wheel), Abracadabra is full length. It is available from Amazon.com!
THE DISC: (2003) 22 tracks clocking in at just under 79 minutes. Included with the disc is 4-page foldout containing several photos of Miller and a brief intro to the man and his music. Digitally remastered sound. Label - Capitol Records.
COMMENTS: Like any greatest hits collection, you'll have hits and misses. While this "Young Hearts" collection is mostly "Hits", there are only a few scattered misses. The good is that you get all but two songs from Miller's "Greatest Hits: 1974-78" except for "True Fine Love" and "Winter Time". You also get some early hits like "Livin' In The USA", "My Dark Hour" (with Paul McCartney) and "Shubada Du Ma Ma". Also keep in mind there are three other Steve Miller compilations out there besides this one and "1974-78"; those would be "Anthology" (1972), a "Best of" - Import - with the familiar horse and an orange cover, and "Best Of: 1968-73". "Young Hearts" captures songs from each and in the liner notes, you'll note that this is the only compilation CD featuring his best chart topper in the 1990's, "Abracadbra" (which happpens to be the name of his boat). The songs are arranged randomly, and I feel chronological order was needed. All the staples are here - "Take The Money & Run", "Rock 'N Me", "Fly Like An Eagle", "Jungle Love", "Wild River", "The Joker", "Livin' In The USA", "Jet Airliner", etc.Read more ›
