Notes

Personnel: Steve Miller (vocals, guitar); Greg Douglass, John Massaro, Kenny Lee Lewis (guitar); Byron Allred (keyboards, synthesizer); Gary Mallaber (keyboards, drums, percussion); Gerald Johnson, Lonnie Turner (bass).
By the dawn of the '80s, some rock giants of the previous decade found themselves having a hard time making the musical transition to new styles. While most artists attempted to update their hard rocking sound with such '80s musical elements as synthesizers and pop-friendly production, etc., for some such innovations spelled disaster. However, for others such as Steve Miller, they spelled big, albeit brief, chart success.
Like another rock outfit updating their sound with synth grooves, ZZ Top, Miller merged the two styles together and scored one of the biggest radio hits of 1982--"Abracadabra." While the album of the same name performed well on the charts due to the single's success, it wasn't on par with his earlier, more focused records, making Miller's synth-pop crossover success short lived.
