The Steve Miller Band
On his first studio album in 17 years, Steve Miller returns to his blues roots but givesÂ BINGO! the slick party-pop vibe of classic Miller albums likeÂ The Joker andÂ Fly Like an Eagle. With singer Sonny Charles of the Checkmates, Miller and the band beef up bar-blues warhorses like ”˜Rock Me Baby.’ He puts his own mellow voice to spacier, early-Fleetwood-Mac-like takes on songs such as Otis Rush’s ”˜All Your Love (I Miss Loving)’ and veers into schmaltziness on the R&B duet ”˜Sweet Soul Vibe.’ Miller doesn’t say anything here that he hasn’t said before, but hardcore fans will be glad he’s saying anything at all.
Key Tracks: ”˜All Your Love (I Miss Loving),’ ”˜Who’s Been Talking’
