Before singer/guitarist Steve Miller became one of the late-'70s big names in rock & roll (and eventually, the classic rock radio format), he specialized in psychedelic blues. The 16 track ANTHOLOGY collects Miller's best tracks from his pre-JOKER albums, and proves to be a worthy companion to his later best-of sets, GREATEST HITS 1974-1978 and THE BEST OF 1968-1973. Several of the tracks were originally from currently out-of-print albums, such as the highlights "Your Saving Grace," "Little Girl," "Journey from Eden," and "Don't Let Nobody Turn You Around," making ANTHOLOGY a worthwhile purchase for longtime fans as well.
