Steve Miller’s Iconic Album ‘The Joker’ Gets 50th Anniversary Box Set

The release date is set for September 15, 2023

Back in 1973, Steve Miller released his best-selling (8th) album The Joker, which not only topped the charts but also achieved platinum status.

50 years on, Miller is releasing a new box set of the album titled J50: The Evolution of The Joker, on September 15. 2023. The set comprises 2 CDs or 3 LPs +7”. It showcases Miller’s process as he expands and reimagines his craft, ultimately finding a strikingly original new sound that brought him to a wider audience than ever before and set the stage for even greater successes to come.

According to the announcement, the set, curated by Miller himself, “dives deep into the creative process of writing and assembling The Joker and amplifies its enduring magic by chronologically placing the original album tracks alongside 27 previously unreleased recordings from Miller’s personal archive – including songwriting tapes made by Miller on his TEAC 4-track in hotel rooms on the road and at live performances, plus studio outtakes and rehearsals – as well as six audio commentary tracks from Miller and exclusive liner notes from both Miller and journalist Anthony DeCurtis. The vinyl version includes a reproduction of a vintage The Joker iron-on and a limited-edition lithograph.”
