Bingo! – The Steve Miller Band

So today I went again to the construction site in Voorhees for the new Virtua Hospital to observe the installation of underground stone columns. The columns are designed to make the ground more stable during an earthquake. So I had the player on shuffle on the way over and back. A good mix from all the music I’ve listened to over the last several weeks was playing a little Gold Heart, The Devil Makes Three, Killbilly, Tommy Castro and then I heard a voice from the past and I had forgotten that I had downloaded his new album actually his first album in seventeen years and that voice belonged to Steve Miller and his new album Bingo. So I made the album the soundtrack for my four mile run this evening and both turned out to be good! The 67 year old Miller’s voice is still good as is his guitar playing. I was a Steve Miller Band fan from Sailor through album seven Recall the Beginning and then came The Joker and Fly like an Eagle and I kinda lost interest in the band. For me this album works on all levels, even though there’s no new songs! I just like the total vibe of the album it’s more bluesy than some of the rock hits albums and the guitar work really stands out! The album was produced by Andy Johns who is the younger brother of Gyn Johns who produced Miller’s early albums!.
