Stephen Miller - Stephen Miller (1970)

Don't nobody freak, this has nothing to do with Steve Miller. This is Stephen Miller, who most Southern Rock fans will know as the keyboard player/singer who joined Grinderswitch for their 'Pullin' Together' album (their third). Before that, Stephen played as 'Steve' on early records of Elvin Bishop. And on this album by Steve/Stephen, he is joined by Elvin on guitar. Also playing along is Bishop's harmonica player Applejack. So, the music on this record is more like the pre-Capricorn sound of The Elvin Bishop Group. A good blues rock album and very interesting from a historical point of view. The roots of Southern Rock alright.

Hi Skydog,
I have found this extremely elusive lp on your excellent blog, but something does not work with the rar file which appears to be corrupted.
Any chance to repost a repaired file in a next future?
I don't think that this work of Stephen Miller is posted in any other place on the blogosphere.
Anyhow, thanks for all,

Strange. It's been fine up until now. The only explanation I can think of, is that it must be the "new and improved MegaUpload" . Anyway, I posted a new link. Enjoy!

Thanks for making this available, Skydogg. Apart from the first track, the other tracks on the rip are mislabeled, just sayin'. "It's a Fact Of Life" is "Pipeliner"... etc.

Do you have the correct order? I never owned the album. I will correct it ;) thanks
