Steve Miller Band Share 1981 Single Edit Of 'Macho City'
(hennemusic) The Steve Miller Band are streaming audio of a 1981 single version of "Macho City" as the latest preview to the forthcoming collection, "Welcome To The Vault."
The epic track from the group's eleventh album, "Circle Of Love" - which clocks in at more than 18 minutes and fully takes up side two of the original vinyl release - was chopped down to under 4 minutes for radio airplay.
"Circle Of Love" was the Steve Miller Band's first album of new material since 1977's smash, "Book Of Dreams", hit No. 2 on the Billboard 200 on its way to US sales of 3 million copies.
Due October 11, "Welcome To The Vault" presents 52 audio tracks alongside 21 performances on DVD and a 100-page hard bound book with Steve's personal photos and a 9,000 word essay by Rolling Stone's David Fricke.
The set delivers 38 previously-unavailable rarities on the 3CD/DVD collection, including more studio and live material as well as five previously unheard songs dating back to the late '60s. Stream the song here.
