For decades, it’s been known that Steve Miller was not only a prolific recording artist but, since he owns all the publishing and copyrights to his songs, he’s kept an extensive collection of unreleased and alternate recordings of his music in his own vaults.

Today, Miller announced he’s gone through those precious archives and will be releasing “Welcome To The Vault” – a 3CD/DVD recording anthology  – on October 11.

The 52-track set will feature 38 previously unreleased tracks, comprised of live performances, alternate takes and completely unreleased songs from the 60s and 70s.

In addition to all that music, the physical version of the set will have a 100-page hardbound book full of pictures and highlights from his 50+ year career.

Man, I can’t wait to hear all these alternate versions and see that duet with James Cotton on the DVD!!!  Check out my show this afternoon (6/12/19) at 4:40 – I’ll be playing an alternate version of a Steve Miller classic from the set!
