The Joker is, without question, the turning point in Steve Miller's career, the album where he infused his blues with a big, bright dose of pop and got exactly what he deserved: Top Ten hits and stardom. He also lost a lot of fans, the ones who dug his winding improvs, because those spacy jams were driven by chops and revealed new worlds. The Joker isn't mind-expanding, it's party music, filled with good vibes, never laying a heavy trip, always keeping things light, relaxed and easygoing. Sometimes, the vibes are interrupted, but not in a harsh way -- the second side slows a bit, largely due to the sludgy "Come in My Kitchen" and "Evil," the two songs that were recorded live but lacking any kinetic energy -- but for the most part, this is all bright and fun, occasionally truly silly, as on "Shu Ba Da Du Ma Ma Ma Ma." This silliness, of course, alienated old fans all the more, but that sense of fun is both the most appealing thing about The Joker and it set a touchstone for the rest of his career. Here, it's best heard on the terrific opener "Sugar Babe" and, of course, the timeless title track, which is sunny and ridiculous in equal measure. If nothing else is quite up to that standard in terms of songs -- certainly, it's not as jammed-pack as its successor, Fly Like an Eagle -- The Joker nevertheless maintains its good-time vibe so well that it's hard not to smile along...provided you're on the same wavelength as Miller, of course.

10 Legenden des Blues

Am 21. Juni jährt sich zum 20. Mal der Todestag einer der Könige des Blues: John Lee Hooker. Aber der Riese nahm den Blues nicht mit in sein Grab. Diese Musik, die seit mehr als einem Jahrhundert aufgezeichnet wird, kultiviert weiterhin die gesamte Popmusik und produziert großartige Platten (wie das letzte Album der Black Keys). Es ist an der Zeit, die Klassiker aufzufrischen, in zehn Porträts historischer Bluesmen, darunter auch eine Bluesfrau.

Das weiße Album der Beatles, die Entstehung eines Mythos

Das einzige Doppelalbum der Beatles, das umgangssprachlich meist nur „The White Album“ genannt wird, feierte 2018 seinen 50. Geburtstag und erschien zu diesem Anlass als Deluxe-Version mit zahlreichen bisher unveröffentlichten Tracks. 

“Back in Black”: AC/DC in vollem Glanz

“Back in Black” steht mit 50 Millionen Exemplaren an zweiter Stelle der weltweit am meisten verkauften Alben, gleich hinter Michael Jacksons “Thriller”! Wer hätte gedacht, dass dieses siebte Studioalbum von AC/DC so weit vorne landen würde, wo doch ihr charismatischer Sänger Bon Scott allzu früh starb, nachdem “Highway to Hell” auf den Markt gekommen war. Das war das Ende von Band 1, aber vor allem der Anfang von Band 2 der Geschichte, den die Fans der australischen Band auch heute noch gerne durchblättern…
