More Miles Per Hour was the fourth solo album released by John Miles in 1979. Just like Zaragon the album didn't manage to crack the top 40 in the U.K and the singles off the album failed to chart.
For this album, Miles reunited with producer Alan Parsons and orchestral arranger Andrew Powell with whom he also collaborated on Rebel.
For the first time, Miles played some of tracks ("Can't Keep a Good Man Down" and "We All Fall Down") before the album was released at the Great British Music Festival in Wembley in December 1978.[1]
For the cover Miles wanted a picture of him as a pilot in front of a Concorde, but British Airports in London denied permission so Miles had to fly to New York to do the shoot. [1]

In 2008, the album reissued with new liner notes and bonus tracks.
