Steve Miller – The Joker (1973)

The Joker is the eighth album by Steve Miller Band, released in 1973. It marked a period of significant change for the group as the band abandoned their psychedelic oriented music for a more melodic, smooth rock/blues sound. Perhaps not coincidentally, it was also their first solid commercial success due to the strong radio-play of the title track. The title track took 19 days to record.

The album’s artwork is also considered amongst the greatest; Rolling Stone magazine would later rank it as one of the “Top 100 Album Covers Of All Time”
