It was Les Paul who first taught chords on a guitar to a very young Steve Miller. The album “Children of the Future” by the Steve Miller Band was instrumental in the economics for future recording artists. Miller paved the way by demanding a record breaking advance and huge royalty rate. Released in 1968 on Capital records, the album became a staple for newly emerging progressive FM radio stations. It’s worth up to $150.00 today.The Steve Miller Band is among the over 65,000 recording artists you’ll find on the “Mighty John Record Appraisal Guide” on CD listing the values for over a million records (albums, 45s, & 78s). It’s available in the left hand column.
