“The Stake" appeared on SMB’s Greatest Hits album (1974-1978), which has sold over 13 million copies to date. This song of burning confidence, well known by its chorus, "Nobody Loves You Like the Way I Do," portrays a classic blues man's brag to his lover and was a perfect match for Steve Miller's "Gangster of Love" stage persona. "The Stake" lives on to this day, connecting with each new generation of Steve Miller Band fans.
