Brave New World by Steve Miller Band
Released: Jun 1969
Label: Capitol Records
Succumbing to a hippier, dippier breeziness previously obscured by raw blues, Brave New World is Steve Miller's first full-blown plunge into the Technicolor waters of the Summer of Love. The record starts with the sound of an exploding A-bomb and quickly trips into harmonized sha-la-las, boogie-blues bass lines, and other signifiers of late-'60s, California-fried rock. Tim Davis sizzles on drums while the Space Cowboy goes intergalactic, groovier and more nuanced than ever. Listen for hints of "Fly Like an Eagle" in the Paul McCartney-backed "My Dark Hour."
