Level of familiarity before listening
When I first picked this one out of the box, I was confused for a moment, since I thought that Steve Miller only ever recorded one song, The Joker. But then I was reminded of Take The Money And Run and Fly Like An Eagle.
What I expected
Bluesy, poppy stadium rock.
What it was actually like
There was more of a hard rock influence than I anticipated, and Dance, Dance, Dance was pretty country (and I almost though that Winter Time was going to be California Dreamin’).
Besides the songs I knew that I knew, I also knew Swingtown and Rock N’Me. Fly Like An Eagle was much more funk than I remember, and Threshold may or may not have been the same song as Rock N’Me.
4/5: would listen again
