In 2018, the legendary Steve Miller Band’s Complete Albums Volume 1 (1968-1976) debuted as an unprecedented and acclaimed 9 LP vinyl box set, individual 180-gram black vinyl LPs and color vinyl LPs, and HD digital audio. Steve Miller and Capitol/UMe are incredibly excited to announce plans for the May 24th global release of the collection’s second volume, presenting nine more Steve Miller Band studio albums in a new 180-gram vinyl box set called Complete Albums Volume 2 (1977-2011). Spanning the band’s multi-platinum tenth studio album, 1977’s Book of Dreams, through 2011’s Let Your Hair Down, the albums have all been remastered. Each album is also available as individual 180-gram black LPs to be released on the same date, as well as limited edition 180-gram color vinyl LPs for sale exclusively via uDiscoverMusic.
Complete Albums Volume 2‘s nine studio albums have also been newly remastered for HD digital audio (96kHz/24-bit). Starting with tomorrow’s (Fri, Feb 22nd) global release of Book of Dreams and Circle of Love, the albums’ HD digital audio debuts will continue with two titles per week in chronological order ahead of the Complete Albums Volume 2 vinyl release.
Steve Miller Band will be hitting the road again this year — first this spring for an evening with the Steve Miller Band, and then this summer with the great Marty Stuart and His Fabulous Superlatives supporting a 36-city cross-country trek — “An Amazing Evening of Original American Music – Classic Rock Meets Classic Country.”
“I know it is going to be one of the best musical pairings we’ve ever done and an amazing evening of great American music,” says Miller. “For those Steve Miller Band fans who don’t know Marty Stuart And His Fabulous Superlatives — Marty Stuart, Kenny Vaughan, Harry Stinson & Chris Scruggs — together they are one of the best singing and playing bands EVER and not to be missed. Marty is one of the finest musicians in the world — an amazing singer, song writer and country music scholar and it’s an honor to have him join us this summer for an unbelievable evening of original American music.”
“Steve Miller is a treasure and a true world-class musical citizen. I so respect him as a singer, a songwriter, guitar slinger, historian, art connoisseur, bandleader and friend. It’s an honor for the Superlatives and I to run the roads of the nation and share the stage with the Steve Miller Band this summer,” Stuart says. “I predict some amazing musical moments out there on the horizon.”
