Steve Miller Band : The Joker,альбом, рецезия, трек-лист, mp3, тексты песен.

The Joker is the eighth studio album by Steve Miller Band. The album marked a period of significant change for the group as the band abandoned their music for a more melodic, smooth rock/blues sound. Perhaps not coincidentally, it was also their first solid commercial success due to the strong radio-play of the title track. The title track took 19 days to record.

Produced by Steve Miller. Some people call me the space cowboy, yeah Some call me the gangster of love Some people call me Maurice 'Cause I speak of the pompatus of love People talk about me, baby Say I'm doing you wrong, doing you wrong Well, don't you worry, baby, don't worry 'Cause I'm right here, right here, right here, right. I play my music in the sun I'm a joker, I'm a smoker I'm a midnight toker I sure don't want to hurt no one Whooo Whoooo. People keep talking about me, baby Say I'm doing you wrong Well, don't you worry, don't worry, no, don't worry, mama 'Cause I'm right here at home You're the cutest thing I ever did see Really love your peaches, wanna shake your tree Lovey-dovey, lovey-dovey, lovey-dovey all the time C'mon baby, now. I'll show you a good time.

Saw Steve Miller on Saturday .. According to his on-line bio he started his first band at 12, which would be 1955, right around that time. Way to go Steve! The man found a way to keep the musical history alive and well for us to track down.

The Joker is, without question, the turning point in Steve Miller's career, the album where he infused his blues with a big, bright dose of pop and got exactly what he deserved: Top Ten hits and stardom. He also lost a lot of fans, the ones who dug his winding improvs, because those spacy jams were driven by chops and revealed new worlds. The Joker isn't mind-expanding, it's party music, filled with good vibes, never laying a heavy trip, always keeping things light, relaxed and easygoing.

Steve Miller's The Joker may seem like an uneven album in terms of consistency. We have the title track, an obvious standout and one of Miller's best compositions of his career, and then we have some tracks that just aren't up to par, making the album feel somewhat lopsided or irregular. The album starts off promising enough with the rockin' blues of Sugar Babe. While The Joker may not be the Steve Miller Band's greatest album in the bands long discography, it remains far from worst and remains a popular as well as important one and is good in its own right. Recommended Tracks: The Joker Something To Believe In Sugar Babe.
