Last September, Miller produced and personally directed the curation and creative process for two new, career-spanning Steve Miller Band Ultimate Hits collections (Capitol/Ume). Ultimate Hits is available in a 1CD and digital edition featuring 22 essential Steve Miller Band tracks, including three previously unreleased rarities, and in an expanded 2CD and digital deluxe edition with 40 tracks, including the acclaimed band’s top hits, live tracks, and eight previously unreleased recordings from the studio and the stage. Both editions are also available on 180-gram vinyl in 2LP and 4LP deluxe packages.
Following albums like Children of the Future, Sailor and Brave New World that articulated a compelling vision of what music and society would be in the years to come, Miller crafted a brand of rock ‘n’ roll music that dominated radio. Hits like “The Joker,” “Livin’ in the USA,” “Take the Money and Run,” “Rock’n Me,” “Fly Like an Eagle,” “Jet Airliner,” “Jungle Love,” and “Abracadabra” still remain irresistible and instantly recognizable when heard on the radio. The iconic Steve Miller Band has been performing inspired versions of Miller’s incomparable songbook to legions of fans across the globe for 50 years.
