All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Close to definitive is the best way to describe the three-disc box Steve Miller Band. That, or missed opportunity. The set is divided pretty well, with the first disc being devoted to the early years, the second to the hitmaking era, and the third to the blues. Now, this isn't a hard-and-fast breakdown, since there's no one on God's green earth who would call "Abracadabra" a blues, but it's a pretty good template for a box.

Nevertheless, Anthology and Greatest Hits, especially, remain the best way to hear Miller at his peak.
