AllMusic Review by

Released in 1983 Steve Miller Band: Live! is culled from a concert, or several concerts, that SMB gave on the supporting tour for Abracadabra. They run through all the big hits -- the most obscure this gets is "Mercury Blues," from their most popular album, Fly Like an Eagle -- in performances that pretty much stick to the record. There's not much here that's different and, accordingly, there are zero revelations, but this is pleasant and enjoyable. There's no real reason to get the record, since it isn't even infused with much live energy, but once it's playing, it's easy to get sucked into the greatest-hits set list. (By the way, the town where SMB performed is not listed in the liners, but the crowd does give a hearty cheer for "Detroit City" in "Rock 'n Me," so maybe that's where it was cut.)
