Steve Miller had a run of hit singles in the mid-70's that resulted in the massively successful Greatest Hits album. This set is like a slightly abbreviated version of that album. Miller got his start as a blues musician before stumbling into pop success, and that is evident on a couple of tracks here. The group is a fantastic live band, and though this was meant to be a shortened set, they do cut loose on "Mercury Blue", and a couple of others.

One song that gets a little extra is "Take the Money and Run", which has an awesome guitar solo. For the most part, the play their hits pretty straight up...the songs sound exactly like you think they will, very similar to the studio versions. So casual fans shouldn't be concerned about their favorites being unrecognizable. Hardcore fans should realize this isn't a full set...there are more lengthy live sets from Miller and company available, this is clearly meant to draw the causal fans, but that's not to say the performances are lacking. Particularly on a song like "Jet Airliner" you can tell that Miller is putting everything he has into the song.

Some of the smaller hits may not be here, but the big ones are. "Rock 'N Me" was written to be performed live in a big stadium, opposite a band like Pink Floyd...this is a smaller crowd, but they still eat it up. Other hits like "The Joker" and "Jungle Love" feel perfectly placed in this live setting. The set ends with a haul harmonica-driven blues piece in "Buffalo's Seranade", a true blues instrumental.

Hardcore fans of Miller may find themselves wanting after hearing this eleven song set, but that feels like the point. More casual fans will listen to this, recognize most of it as their favorite radio songs, and hopefully dig deeper for a little more. But what's here is pretty great, more than worth giving a try.
