Steve Miller Band Wide River (Sailor/Polydor/PLG) Summer of Love survivor Steve Miller, who chalked up a mess of hits in the ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s, is back, ready to tackle a new decade-and sounding very mellow indeed. Here, he addresses the ”Pompatus of love” and related subjects in a series of laid-back songs marked by his steady, even vocals and subtle-but-still there-hooks. If the planets are in alignment, there might just be a balmy summer hit in here somewhere. B+ -Tom Sinclair
