The Steve Miller Band’s greatest success was Book of Dreams. This album is almost a greatest hits album all by itself. Just look at some of the songs on this release:
- Jet Airliner
- Jungle Love
- Winter Time
- True Fine Love
- Wish Upon a Star
However, Steve Miller had been around for quite a while before this album. Through much of the sixties and early seventies, Miller was immersed in blues and building his reputation.
In 1973 Miller released The Joker, which marked a change in his musical direction. Following up with Fly Like an Eagle and Book of Dreams he found a new popularity as well. And he found a place in mainstream 70s rock.
