Steve Miller Band Tribute Features Members of Yes, Asia, Deep Purple
Purple Pyramid's ongoing series of tribute records has offered new re-recordings of hits by a growing list of artists that includes Genesis and Yes. The latest offering pays tribute to the Steve Miller Band.
The label's Miller record, 'Fly Like An Eagle – An All-Star Tribute to Steve Miller Band,' was produced by former Yes member Billy Sherwood, who enthused in a press release, "Steve Miller has written so many great songs, working on this record gave me a chance to look deeper into the inner workings of the material and explore it all with so many amazing guest artists. It was an honor producing and playing on this project. I think the fans of the music will appreciate the contributions of all the artists involved."
According to the 'Fly Like an Eagle' announcement, that list of artists includes Yes veterans Rick Wakeman and Tony Kaye, Asia's John Wetton, Colin Moulding of XTC, Gong's Steve Hillage, Fee Waybill of the Tubes, Deep Purple's Steve Morse, Jordan Rudess of Dream Theater and guitarist Steve Stevens, among others. The songs also reportedly include "some final recordings by guitar legend Peter Banks." The complete track listing for the album, which is available now, is included below.
