Divided in half, with one side of catchy pop tunes and one side devoted to a 16-minute space blues workout called “Macho City,” the design of Circle of Love feels like a throwback to 1971, when people truly paid attention to the flow of an album. In 1981, it was a bit of anachronism, but its old-fashioned feel (and its tedious “Macho City”) are saved by the mini-album of pop/rock that might not have produced any undeniable classics, but includes tuneful, well-crafted numbers that serve as worthy follow-ups to Fly Like an Eagle and Book of Dreams.

It is here, on this 1977 blockbuster, that Steve Miller shored up his “Space Cowboy” moniker and cosmic persona: from the winged horse on the album cover to a judicious smattering of synthesizers in the music, Book of Dreams bridged the gap between blues-rock and the indulgences of prog rock. Things do go awry when Renaissance Faire whimsy takes over clunkers like “Wish Upon a Star” and “Babes in the Wood,” but luckily the balance of the record offers a satisfying blend of meaty blues and country riffs and tasteful atmospherics. The well-known suspects include “Swingtown,” “Winter Time,” and “Threshold,” with relatively straightforward rock & boogie highlights coming by way of “True Fine Love,” “Jet Airliner,” and “Jungle Love.” The non-hit cuts, “Sacrifice” and “My Own Space,” do stand up to these FM favorites but fall short of making the album something the casual fan should consider with Miller’s Greatest Hits 1974-1978 in hand (that collection includes seven tracks off of Book of Dreams, plus all the hits from The Joker and Fly Like an Eagle). Still, this is a highlight of the ’70s classic rock era and one of Miller’s finest releases.

The Rolling Stones’ No Security tour ran from January to June 1999 through North America and Europe. It followed on from the colossal Bridges To Babylon tour and took its name from the “No Security” live album recorded on that 1997/98 tour. In reaction to the huge stadiums played on Bridges To Babylon the conscious decision was made to book smaller venues for the initial North American leg of the No Security tour. This latest addition to the acclaimed From The Vaults series was filmed at the San Jose Arena in front of an audience of a little over 30,000 (intimate by Rolling Stones standards!) at the end of the North American dates. Previously unreleased, it captures the band in top form playing a set that spans from mid-sixties hit singles up to the then current Bridges To Babylon album.
