Steve Miller Band: Live From Chicago (DVD Review)25 May, 2008 By: John Latchem
Fans of the Steve Miller Band will go nuts for this deluxe boxed set of the group's summer 2007 concert at the Ravinia Festival. The first disc includes a set of 20 songs, including such classics as “Fly Like an Eagle” and “The Joker.”
The set also includes a music CD of 12 of the songs performed live.
A bonus disc gives fans deeper insight into Miller himself with a short documentary in which he discusses his career and the musical landmarks of Chicago. This special splices in some of the concert footage with interviews with the fans, who relate why they've remained loyal to the Steve Miller Band for 40 years and counting.
The documentary is accompanied by video footage from a radio interview conducted from the back of a taxi ferrying Miller around Chicago as he tells stories from his career, and how he first came to Chicago to become a blues musician.
Also included is a photo gallery of the concert and a not-so-hidden bonus gallery of archive photos.
