Book of Dreams

Book of Dreams

1977’s Book of Dreams continues the compact precision of Steve Miller’s 1976 release Fly Like An Eagle, extending his reign as FM radio’s “space cowboy” that began with 1973’s The Joker, where he first tightened up his blues-rock licks into a formidable commercial force. With his futuristic keyboards settling alongside his meticulously layered guitars on pop songs that pounce on the pavement, Book of Dreams is crammed with obvious and obscure gems produced for maximum impact. “Jet Airliner” is an irresistibly natural walking groove, while “Swingtown” presents a few challenging dance moves with its stop and go pacing. “Jungle Love” charges out of the gate with its urgent whistle blow and exemplary FM-radio guitars. The traditional rocker “True Fine Love” delivers an extra kick with brilliantly tight guitar chops. “Threshold” and “Electro Lux Imbroglio” are brief keyboard interludes that add an otherworldly dimension to this well-grounded collection. “Winter Time,” “Sacrifice” and “My Own Space” show Miller at his most reflective. An outstanding well-rounded collection from start to finish.
