A recording artist since 1968, Miller made eight albums for Capitol, culminating with “The Joker”, before releasing the multi-million selling “Fly Like An Eagle” and “Book Of Dreams” albums in 1976 and 1977.
Originally released in November 1981, “Circle Of Love” features the hit singles “Heart Like A Wheel” and “Circle Of Love”, and also the sixteen minute “Macho City”. Taking up all of the album’s second side, this political work became a New York loft party favourite.
“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.” (Stephen Thomas Erlewine, AMG)
