(hennemusic) The Steve Miller Band is marking the 40th anniversary of its iconic album, "The Joker", with the digital release of "The Joker Live" this week. The new album - which features exclusive, unreleased tracks - was recorded on the road last year and was issued in sync with the start of a North American tour with Journey, which kicked off on Thursday in Chula Vista, California.

The original 1973 studio album, "The Joker", reached No 2 on the US Billboard 200, while the title track hit No. 1 on the US Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.

"When several friends and colleagues reminded me that it was the 40th birthday of The Joker album, I smiled," said Miller, "and started playing the whole album's songs live again - and at the end of the last tour realized we had a great new record that we wanted to share with our fans. We hope you like it as much as we did playing and recording it." more on this story
