40th Anniversary Reissue!
2016 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Steve Miller was a mainstay of the San Francisco music scene that upended American culture in the late '60s. With albums like Children of the Future, Sailor and Brave New World, Miller perfected a psychedelic blues sound that drew on the deepest sources of American roots music and simultaneously articulated a compelling vision of what music-and society-could be in the years to come. Then, in the '70s, Miller crafted a brand of rock ‘n' roll music that was polished, exciting and irresistible, and that has dominated radio to this very day. It's been a little over 40 years since the Steve Miller Band released their much-heralded record, The Joker. Originally issued in 1973, the platinum-certified classic, fueled by it's chart-topping title song, became Miller's commercial breakthrough - a wonderful amalgamation of virtuosity, songcraft, melodic vocals and signature guitar riffs.
