The new record captures Steve Miller’s legendary 1977 line-up at the beginning of their turn from playing ballrooms and theatres to arenas and football stadiums. The Guitarist, multi-platinum-selling singer-songwriter, bandleader, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, and Songwriters Hall of Fame electee Steve Miller has dug deep into his archives and found an unreleased, full-length concert recording, Steve Miller Band Live! Breaking Ground: August 3rd, 1977, arriving via Sailor/Capitol/UMe Records on Friday, May 14th.

A variety of formats will be available, including digital, CD, and 2xLP black vinyl. The accompanying live concert film featuring the full performance will be available to stream on The Coda Collection on Amazon Prime Video.

Says Miller: “This show from August of 1977 at the Cap Center in Landover, Maryland, captures the band right at the peak after The Joker, and in the middle of “Fly Like an Eagle” and “Book of Dreams”, a stream of hits…We decided to call it Breaking Ground because that’s exactly what we were doing.”

 

Steve Miller Band Live! Breaking Ground: August 3, 1977 –includes original liner notes by music journalist David Fricke who says – “Breaking Ground captures the Steve Miller Band on stage in one of their biggest years, 1977. They were at a perfect crossroads of psychedelic zeal and progressive, popcraft while staying true to Miller’s first love, the blues.”
