Ahead of the 1976 release of the very popular album 'Fly Like An Eagle' Steve Miller spent a reasonable part of 1975 touring.
Having gone to Knebworth Park in England, in the summer of 1975, along with 100,000 other fairly typical 'raving and drooling' Pink Floyd fans, I was absolutely 'blown over' by the final band of the day prior to Pink Floyd, namely the Steve Miller Band.
This was my introduction to Steve Miller, and I have been after live material from that year, or tour ever since.
I have a recording of the Pink Floyd element of Knebworth 75, however the audio is very 'low tech' and I wonder if this particular festival is designated for the memories of those fortunate enough to have attended only.
Therefore I am delighted to have obtained a copy of Steve Miller live, from earlier in 1975 and in superb quality. I am not sure if this is a 'King Biscuit' FM broadcast, whatever it is an excellent recording. This then is The Steve Miller Band - Live At The Beacon Theatre, New York City, USA, during April 1975.

It's a rather ironic 'touch' that the bootleg cover above is 'lifted' from the following years album release, some say imitation is the greatest form of flattery, however you view it, this is an excellent show.
