The Demon Music Group reissued the Steve Miller Band’s classic 1976 album “Fly Like An Eagle” as a special collector’s edition CD/DVD set on 4th October 2010. The “Fly Like An Eagle” Collector’s Edition set will feature all 12 original album tracks, three bonus demo recordings, and a two hour live concert DVD filmed at Shoreline Amphitheater in 2005 featuring all Steve’s best-known songs, with special guests, guitar legends George Thorogood and Joe Satriani. The bonus feature is the 5.1 audio mix of the original album. The digipak will feature the original album sleeve design with new liner notes penned by renown music critic and author Joel Selvin, and for the first time, all the lyrics. In addition, Demon Music Group has announced they will reissue seven remastered classic Steve Miller Band albums on 27 September. The digital reissues will include the original track listings and original cover artwork.
Originally released in 1976, “Fly Like An Eagle” was a career-defining album for the Steve Miller Band and the group’s biggest-selling studio album with over four million albums sold to date. The album spent nearly two years on the Billboard 200, peaking at #3 and yielding the Top 40 singles “Rock ’N Me,” which hit #1, the title track hit #2 on the pop charts and #20 on the R&B charts, and “Take the Money and Run” peaked at #11. The album was just as popular in the UK and Europe.
Steve Miller Band has announced they will kick off their first European tour run in 25 years beginning on the 7th October in London, for their first show ever at Royal Albert Hall. The tour includes eight dates with stops in Belgium, Italy, France, Germany, and winds down 18 October in Holland.
Having sold more than 30 million records, The Steve Miller Band’s trademark sound is a mainstay of rock radio. His annual concert tour extravaganza has become an anticipated event for millions of rock fans across the U.S. While the European tour will feature his classic rock anthems “Fly Like An Eagle,” “The Joker,” “Rock ‘n Me,” “Take The Money And Run,” and “Abracadabra,” among others, Miller will also perform selected tracks from his recently released new studio album titled BINGO!. A true return to Miller’s roots, BINGO! echoes his early days on the Chicago music scene, and is the album Steve Miller has been waiting all his life to make. Co-produced by Miller and engineer Andy Johns (Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix), BINGO! is the first of two albums recorded at George Lucas’ Skywalker Ranch. These were the final sessions by long-time harmonica player and vocalist Norton Buffalo, Miller’s “partner in harmony” for 33 years, who died of cancer in October 2009.
