While best known for his big hit singles 'The Joker' and 'Abracadabra' and therefore often dismissed as a typical West-Coast middle-of-the-road act akin to the Eagles this fabulous compilation goes a long way to redress the balance by showcasing the fantastic and influential music Stevie 'Guitar' Miller made during his earlier less-chart friendly days. There is a lot of varied and wonderful music on display here that I'm sure will astound casual fans by it's inventiveness and passion. This compilation encompasses Miller's first five years during which time he released a staggering eight albums that saw his star rise from the ashes of the late 60's hippy era of playing Frisco's Fillmore to the international success of 'The Joker' - although inexplicably there are no tracks from his seminal debut 'Children of The Future' nor any from the wonderful 'Rock Love' or less impressive 'Recall The Beginning...', although the last two have still yet to be released on CD. So while being a fantastic overview of Miller's early work it's by no means comprehensive and the lack of songs like 'Junior Saw It Happen' and Boz Scaggs' 'Baby's Calling Me Home' from 'Children of the Future' or indeed 'Baby's House', 'Feel So Glad' from 'Your Saving Grace', or 'Celebration Song' from 'Brave New World' and 'I Love You' from 'Number 5' (both originally included on the old vinyl '68-'73 release) are somewhat serious omissions that diehard fans will question.Read more ›

I've always liked Steve Miller's mid-70's output and thought I should investigate his early years. After all, most artists seem to put out their best work in their early years. However, this album is a very coherent explanation for why the band only became so successful after the release of the Joker - put simply, the stuff from before then is not very good. This compilation ignores chronology to put The Joker (released 1973) as track 1 and it is a great way to start an album. Then we go back to songs from '68-70. None of the tracks is dreadful; some is good and there are flashes of originality (and some terrific guitar playing) but the vital ingredient that lifts the albums Fly Like an Eagle and Book of Dreams is conspicuous by its absence. So, if you've got all the post-73 albums you've got the best already. It might be worth buying this album to get a taste of the pre-commercial-success years, but I suspect you won't play it nearly as much as the later work.

This is a great compilation to introduce anyone to this great band. The songs just come thick and fast, the style is moderns and it does not sound nearly 30 years old.
Go on enjoy some great music.

As this was a gift I can't really give an opinion on this specific album, but the person I bought it for liked it.
