Book of Dreams is the tenth studio album by Steve Miller Band. Three singles were released from the album in 1977 with the first single, "Jet Airliner", being the most successful. The album peaked in the top 10 of the trade charts in four countries, including Canada where the album topped RPM magazine's 100 Albums chart

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

BOOK OF DREAMS is Steve Miller's best original album ever. It's kind of like a streamlined pop-rock version of the Allman Brothers Band's BROTHERS AND SISTERS, imbued with a unique sense of wit. Here, you get the full-length "Threshold/Jet Airliner", as well as great boogie songs such as "True Fine Love" and "Swingtown", and the harder-rocking "Jungle Love. Vinyl: Great Steve Miller Band album. Some of the best songs are the album tracks. Solid record throughout.

In May 1977, Steve followed this up with the album Book Of Dreams, another multi-million seller all around the world. The album was recorded at the same sessions as Fly Like An Eagle and features the hit singles Jet Airliner, Jungle Love and Swingtown. The song was presented to Miller by a former band mate and Miller developed it using a variation of Eric Clapton’s guitar riff on Cream’s version of Crossroads. This method of using a synth-heavy piece to introduce a proper song was commonplace with Miller during this era as he did the exact same thing to start off Fly Like An Eagle and uses this method again later on Book of Dreams with Electro Lux Imbroglio and Sacrifice.
