Editors’ Notes

Recorded at the same sessions at George Lucas’ Skywalker Ranch studio as Miller’s previous album, Bingo!, Let Your Hair Down further explores the Chicago blues that first set Steve Miller off into the world of music. Miller’s in fine voice, but more importantly he's also in great guitar form and tracks such as Robert Johnson’s “Sweet Home Chicago,” Muddy Waters’ “Can’t Be Satisfied” and Willie Dixon’s “Pretty Thing” and “Love the Life I Live” all benefit from Miller’s expert guitar-work and stewardship. Miller is nowhere near his ‘70s FM radio-staple self. He’s still smoother than most and yet able to convey a tough conviction. There are four bonus tracks on this “Special Edition,” including a take on Calvin Carter’s “I Ain’t Got You,” a tune best known to rock fans by its Yardbirds performance. The bonus material fits in perfectly with the official album, extending the tribute to the blues with an intense version of Charles Brown, Eddie Williams and Johnny Moore’s “Driftin’ Blues” that ends this collection on a truly passionate note.

Customer Reviews

Look@urself!

I,d like the soso reviewer to sincerely look at them self in the mirror and say I have know versatility 100 times!

So-so.

Miller is a true talent, he's already proven that through the years, but this album lacks versatility and sincerity. First off, there are no stand out tracks. In fact it all sounds kind of the same, same guitar (faux) blues licks, same harmonica ad libs etc. I can already guess that the die hard fans will love it. (in their minds he can do no wrong anyway) but for the listener trying to discover Mr. Miller, this aint the one....with the exception of maybe "no more doggin" and track one, the songs sound like they were recorded by any old local bar blues band. This compilation shows very little growth from his earlier hits. A "Has been" effort. ill say its a decent listen if you dont expect much but not worth the purchase.

Awesome Album!!!

Those who have rated this album so-so and mediocre are obviously not blues fans nor do they support artistic growth. This is one of the band's best albums along with Bingo. It's a treasure of soulful bluesy artistry. Evolution is what propagates artistic growth, and without it we may as well drag our knuckles on the ground and live in caves!

Steve Miller's career has encompassed two distinct stages: one of the top San Francisco blues-rockers during the late '60s and early '70s, and one of the top-selling pop/rock acts of the mid- to late '70s and early '80s with hits like "The Joker," "Fly Like an Eagle," "Rock'n Me," and "Abracadabra." Miller was turned on to music by his father, who worked as a pathologist but knew stars like Charles Mingus and Les Paul, whom he brought home as guests; Paul taught the young Miller some guitar chords...
