Steve Miller was on the radio a lot in the '70s. I thought I liked his music much better than I did.

A Decent Collection Of Hits, But Hardly Complete!

(4 out of 5 stars)

"This new remastered greatest hits collection of The Steve Miller Band called "Young Hearts: The Complete Greatest Hits", isn't quite as complete as the title says. Seriously missing are "Heart Like A Wheel", "Give It Up", "Keeps Me Wonderin' Why" and "True Fine Love". Also, both "Fly Like An Eagle" and "Abracadabra" are edited for what reason I'll never know. There are enough hits to please most Steve Miller fans such as "Take The Money And Run", "Rockin' Me", "Swingtown", "The Joker", "Fly Like An Eagle", "Jet Airliner", "Jungle Love","The Stake", "Dance Dance Dance" and "Livin' In The USA", etc. I actually prefer the import cd called "Steve Miller Band's Greatest Hits" (orange cover with purple horse logo and lettering) over this collection even though it has only twenty songs compared to 22 on this cd. The sound quality of the import (which is also remastered) is as good if not better than this new collection. Granted the import costs more, but I found my copy at a used cd store at a much lower price. If you like seventies rock such as Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band, Bruce Springsteen and Billy Joel then The Steve Miller Band's cd "Young Hearts: The Complete Greatest Hits" would make a nice addition to your collection."

"In September of 2003, Steve Miller released his fifth US compilation entitled Young Hearts: Complete Greatest Hits.
Steve Miller for 35 plus years has created alot of classic rock and roll gems, album favorites and hit singles.
For years, Capitol Records wanted Steve to release a re-issue of his classic 1978 greatest hits album Greatest Hits 1974-78 but he was not easily persuaded until 2003 when he decided to put out Young Hearts.
This compilation is the only one disc compilation, not counting the 1994 3-CD box set(also known as The Pegasus box set), to cover every era of Steve Miller's career from 1968-2003.
The only albums not covered in this collection are 1968's Children of the Future, 1970's Your Saving Grace and Number 5 albums, 1971's Rock Love, 1972's Recall the Beginning, 1981's Circle of Love(although the album's epic Macho City appears as a bonus track on the European editions of the album on a second disc) and 1988's Born 2 B Blue.
There are only three tracks from the 1968-72 versions of The Steve Miller Band.
The 1969 album Sailor is represented by Living in the USA which was Steve's first big FM rock radio hit. The song would be a concert staple. Gangster of Love is missing but c'est la vie.
1969's Brave New World is represented by the classic Space Cowboy, which was a classic rocker with some tasty lead work from Miller, and the classic collaboration with Beatle Paul McCartney called My Dark Hour which is a great song. In fact, the riff at the beginning would be resurrected for the song Fly Like an Eagle years later.
We then fast forward to 1973's Gold selling album The Joker which is represented by the #1 charting classic title cut(which is here in the original album version and not the single edit featured on Greatest Hits 1974-78) and the classic Shu Ba Da Du Ma Ma Ma Ma.
1976's #2 charting 4 million plus selling album Fly Like an Eagle is represented by the album's title cut(a #2 hit in early 1977 and is here in almost its full album version but with Space Intro that precedes the song), the spacey Wild Mountain Honey, the rocking Serenade, the bluesy Dance Dance Dance, the Top 10 rocker Take the Money and Run and the album's biggest hit Rock'n Me(which hit #1 in 1976 and was written around the time Steve Miller opened for Pink Floyd at Knebworth in 1975 in front of 150,000 people and upstaged the Floyd).
1977's Book of Dreams is represented by the album's Top 10 hit Jet Airliner(which is here in its original album version and with the Threshold intro), the Top 20 hit Swingtown(also here in its album version), the Top 20 hit rocker Jungle Love and the album track The Stake(which is slightly edited). Winter Time(which was on GH 1974-78) is missing but appears on the European edition of Young Hearts which was a 2-disc set and True Fine Love(which was on GH 1974-78 as well) is also missing.
1982's Top 5 Platinum selling Abracadabra is represented by the #1 charting title cut(here in its single edit) and was Steve's last pop hit but what a track.
1984's dud Italian X-Rays is represented by Who Do You Love which was one of the album's few highlights.
1986's Living in the 20th Century is represented by the #1 rock radio and MTV video smash I Want to Make the World Turn Around and I believe this is the video edit on here as the album version was different. The track features Miller singing in a low octave and playing killer guitar solos and includes on tenor saxophone Kenny G(yes, the Kenny G who is the "king of schlock" and someone you least expected to hear on a rock record) on and does surprisingly good tenor sax solos instead of using the annoying soprano sax which he is famous for.
1993's Wide River is represented by the album's title cut(which was a rock radio hit in 1993) and Cry Cry Cry.
This is a great Steve Miller starter kit for those who want to discover him and then buy his catalog after. Despite not charting high(as music was heisted by trashy pop hillbilly harlots, cavedwelling nu-metal dudes and thug rappers/whites who wanted to be boyz in the hood in 2003) but sales don't mean squat!
