  • Summary: The blues and R&B covers album for the California-based Steve Miller Band is its first studio album in seven years and features the late Norton Buffalo.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 2 out of 6
  2. Negative: 0 out of 6
  1. Original Santana percussionist Michael Carabello and Checkmates singer Sonny Charles (now a member of the Steve Miller Band) fortify the performances, while longtime Miller fans will also soak in some of the last recordings by the late harmonica ace Norton Buffalo.
  2. This is a welcome return for Miller, and a must for modern electric blues fans.
  3. The results are mixed. Some of this is merely a hobbyist homage to his roots (his shuffling cover of Jimmy Reed's "You Got Me Dizzy'' is unexciting), but some of it crackles.
  4. 60
    Now in ihis late sixties, Miller's white soul voice and economical guitar-playing still pack a punch, while veteran R&B singer Sonny Charles assists with some well-placed harmonies. [Aug 2010, p.88]
  5. Miller doesn't say anything here that he hasn't said before, but hardcore fans will be glad he's saying anything at all.
  6. If you buy Bingo! expecting to hear some burning blues, or to hear another of the Miller hits that may have excited you in the '70s, you'll be disappointed either way
