Well, the 1989 CD does include that stupid song, but makes up for it with other great tracks

Fitting Conclusion

OK, so Rock Love was pretty bad. Then came this. And after side one was over, you thought, "Well, it's a lot better, but..." And then you flipped it over.

Wow, Steve Miller harkening back to the days of Future and Sailor. Really good, flowing songs. One of the best unheard sides of music in the history of unheard sides of music. Oh, and you can't get this on CD, either!

And then he bacame a pop star with The Joker, Fly Like An Eagle...
