This is intended to be a homage to very many musicians I've loved since I started listening to music. My intention is to tell what I know about them, hoping that those people who like them too, will help me fill numerous gaps, which I may have in their careers and discographies. Sorry, but there are no MP3 audio files here at all, just info (and love for the musicians).

BIOGRAPHY:

One of the finest blues guitarists and singers I've ever heard, Miller Anderson was born on April 12th, 1945, in Houston, Renfrewshire, Scotland, near Glasgow.

THE ROYAL CRESTS


I don't have details, but Miller Anderson started his career in the group The Royal Crests in Scotland around 1964. More info, please!

KARL STUART AND THE PROFILES


Karl Stuart And The Profiles were a variation of The Royal Crests, this time being based in London, where they moved in March 1965:

KARL STUART AND THE PROFILES #?
1965
+ others unknown to me. Help!

They released two singles in 1965: ´Love of my eyes / not a girl in a million´ and ´Haven´t they got better things / Touch of your hand´.


THE PROFILES


They simply changed their name to The Profiles (instead of Karl Stuart And The Profiles):

THE VOICE


Still in 1965, Miller Anderson joined The Voice:

THE VOICE #?
1965
Dave Dufort
drums
+ others unknown to me. Help!

They only released a single, ´Train to disaster / Truth´ (1965, Mercury).

When Miller was to leave the band, he chose his replacement: none other than the great Mick Ronson, although they shared the guitar bill in the band for a month.

As I´ve said, Miller Anderson and Mick Ronson played together in The Voice for one month:

Then, Miller left them.

MILLER ANDERSON BAND


Miller Anderson and Dave Dufort formed a duo in the mid 60s:

But, they soon added Ian Hunter on bass and Dante Smith on keyboards, and they became The Scenery.


THE SCENERY


Miller Anderson had met Ian Hunter when they started doing sessions for bands and artists at Regent Sound Studios. Finally, they decided to put their own band, The Scenery:

Soon later, The Scenery adds a 4th member:

Then, Dufort left the band.

John Vernon Smith joins as the new drummer for The Scenery:

Ian Hunter and Miller Anderson recorded the song ´Queue jumping´ as a demo, and it later turned up on a Japanese EP in Japan under the name The Scenery. I've also read another EP (the same one?) was released in Germany. Can anyone help here, please?


FREDDIE FINGERS LEE BAND


This was the Freddie Fingers Lee Band in 1967, using most of the members of The Scenery:

AT LAST THE 1958 ROCK´N´ROLL SHOW


In March 1968, Miller Anderson joined the band with the strange name, At Last the 1958 Rock'n'roll Show. Here he met Ian Hunter again:

They were managed by Colin Johnson (Status Quo manager). They released one single, ´I can´t drive / Working on the railroad´ (1968, CBS), produced by Jimmy Duncan.

The group played ´I Can't Drive´ on the German TV show BEAT CLUB in Bremen, summer of 1968 (I have it!). In October 1968, the band changed their name to Charlie Woolfe.

It can be read in some parts that legendary drummer Carlo Little was the drummer here, but Carlo told me he wasn't part of this group, although he played in several bands with Freddie ´Fingers´ Lee. Please, check out his own website with very interesting info about this very missed rock pioneer.

Flash forward to February 1990: Ian Hunter and Miller Anderson have remained friends ever since, and they have often jammed together. In February 1990 they did a set together at a club near Miller's house. Anyone was lucky enough to be there?

KEEF HARTLEY BAND


Keef Hartley finally called the great Miller Anderson to join as vocalist and lead guitarist, in November 1968:

KEEF HARTLEY BAND #3
Nov 68-?
Miller Anderson
guitar, vocals
Ian Cruickshank
guitar (as Spit James)
Gary Thain
bass
Dino Dines
keyboards
Keef Hartley
drums

Keef found in Miller a fantastic companion, a superb guitarist and singer, who composed most of the songs.

With Miller's voice, they release the fantastic album, Halfbreed, recorded in three days, with a funny introduction where you can hear John Mayall's conversation with Keef, when he tells him he's out of Bluesbreakers band. The track is appropiately named ´Sacked´. Dino (here, credited as Peter Dines) co-writes half of the tracks in the album. Notice has to be made about all the guitar parts in the album were recorded by Spit. Miller just included the vocals, no guitars.

In the album, there's a horn section to enrich their sound (mainly Hartley former bandmates in John Mayall band):

  • Henry Lowther (trumpet, violin)

  • Harry Beckett (trumpet)

  • Lyn Dobson (tenor sax, flute)

  • Chris Mercer (tenor sax)


  • Once Spit James leaves the band, Miller Anderson takes the guitar role completely. New changes leave the lineup as follows:

    KEEF HARTLEY BAND #4
    ?
    Miller Anderson
    guitar, vocals
    Gary Thain
    bass
    Henry Lowther
    trumpet, violin
    Jimmy Jewell
    sax
    Keef Hartley
    drums

    This lineup played in Woodstock Festival, on its second day, although unfortunately they don't appear on the movie or soundtrack. I also have the extended video edition of the movie with almost 1 additional hour of footage, but, sadly, KHB isn't there.

    To remind a bit of the atmosphere of what happened there, I copy here a brief excerpt from liner notes written by Michael J. Fairchild for the album The Woodstock diary (1994, Atlantic), about that 2nd day:

    ´Rainless Saturday concerts bring euphoric peaks. Participants groove to the tunes of Quill, Keef Hartley, Santana, Mountain, Canned Heat, Creedence Clearwater Revival, the Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, Sly & The Family Stone, the Who, and the Jefferson Airplane. Gladiator gods at the frontliness of consciousness, these bands lead the masses past breakthrough peaks. Rock's Freedom Beat by moonlight unites the tribes at the apex of a decade. Woodstock's field of dreams awakens ancient rites and Sabbat dance. The music is a fruit rooted in Blues, ripening sweet in a half-million heads. It is the Saturnalia of the Century, casting possession frenzy 'til dawn...´

    For their next album, the lineup changes is increased with Mick Weaver:

    KEEF HARTLEY BAND #5
    ?
    Miller Anderson
    guitar, vocals
    Gary Thain
    bass
    Mick Weaver
    keyboards
    Henry Lowther
    trumpet, violin
    Jimmy Jewell
    sax
    Keef Hartley
    drums

    They release their second album, The battle of North West Six, another superb album. It was still recorded with Spit James in the band, with contributions from Mick Taylor (The Rolling Stones) guesting on guitar on one track. Plus Mike Davis (trumpet), Harry Beckett (trumpet, fluegelhorn), Lynn Dobson (tenor saxophone, flute), Chris Mercer (tenor saxophone), Barbara Thompson (baritone saxophone, flute) and Ray Warleigh (flute).

    When they were recording their third album, The time is near, Lowther and Jewell leave the band:

    KEEF HARTLEY BAND #6
    ?
    Miller Anderson
    guitar, vocals
    Gary Thain
    bass
    Mick Weaver

    Keef Hartley

    Dino Dines comes back to the band for a while:

    KEEF HARTLEY BAND #7
    ?-Dec 70
    Miller Anderson
    guitar, vocals
    Gary Thain
    bass
    Dino Dines
    keyboards
    Keef Hartley
    drums

    But the new members don't stay long time in the band, and they leave the band in December 1970, after recording some superb sessions for BBC Radio 1.

    The lineup of Keef Hartley Band changes to an incredible quartet:

    KEEF HARTLEY BAND #8
    Dec 70-?
    Miller Anderson
    guitar, vocals
    Gary Thain
    bass
    Mick Weaver
    keyboards
    Keef Hartley
    drums

    They release the album Overdog, with help from former member Dino Dines (keyboards) and Colosseum drummer Jon Hiseman, who was friends with Keef.

Front, from left to right: Michael Rosen, Mike Davis, Terry Noonan, Martin Drover, Harry Beckett, Keef Hartley, Miller Anderson


    The Keef Hartley Band converts into a big band, in order to record a live album in the legendary Marquee in London, called Little big band. They toured with a big lineup, up to 20 members sometimes. But this was the personnel list for the live album:

    After the live recording, the band turned into their usual aspect (a quintet).

    At some point, great horn man Lyn Dobson joins Keef Hartley Band, although he had already played in some of the former albums:

    Keef Hartley
    drums

    They played some tracks for BBC in March 1971.
    And soon later, Miller Anderson thinks of pursuing a solo career. They get a new guitarist, Junior Kerr (alias for Junior Marvin, also known as Junior Hanson).

    MILLER ANDERSON BAND


    After releasing his solo album, Bright city, Miller Anderson assembled a band to make some concerts. Although he didn't tour, there are at least some sessions for the BBC in 1971. He called many of his friends that played in the album:

    They performed 4 songs for those sessions: ´To whom it may concern´, ´Shadows ´cross my wall´, ´On the ship to nowhere´ and ´High tide, high water´.


    BLOOD SWEAT & TEARS


    This was a very short episode. The band had lost their singer, David Clayton Thomas (who substituted the original member and founder, the magnificent Al Kooper). So, Miller was called to join the band thanks to Ian Hunter recommending him, but for some reason, it didn't work, so he really spent just a few days rehearsing with them:

    HEMLOCK


    Around January 1973, Miller Anderson formed his own band with Mick Weaver, called Hemlock:

    They released a self-titled album, Hemlock, originally conceived as Miller´s second solo album, with help from Pete Willsher on steel guitar and Miller´s mate Chris Mercer on sax. They toured supporting Procol Harum in England in March 1973, followed by another tour supporting Savoy Brown and Uriah Heep. The band in the tour was advertised as Miller Anderson With Hemlock.

    In the tour, the chemistry between Kim Simmonds (leader in Savoy Brown) and Miller finished with the offer of forming a band together (a variation of Savoy Brown called The Boogie Brothers), and Miller took Hemlock´s rhythm section with him, so Hemlock´s life was quite short, although they started another British tour in October 1973 with Darryl Way´s Wolf and Pete Brown, but split in the middle of this tour.

    SAVOY BROWN


    Next step for Miller Anderson was to join blues band Savoy Brown in January 1974. In the band, there was three superb guitarists at the same time: Kim Simmonds (the leader of the band, he still maintains the group active), Stan Webb (from another great blues band, Chicken Shack), and Miller Anderson:

    Many of the songs from the Boogie Brothers album were written by Miller. They toured extensively the States. But there were too many leaders in the band, and they only stayed together until December 1974.

    DOG SOLDIER

    After releasing their self-titled album, Dog Soldier, Keef Hartley and Paul Bliss left the band, who carried on with new members.

    The new members of Dog Soldier were Miller Anderson´s mates, Jim Leverton and Eric Dillon:

    MICK TAYLOR BAND


    After the Dog Soldier separation, Miller Anderson and Mick Taylor met again (they had met in some sessions in the Keef Hartley Band). Mick had assembled a powerful band with ex-members from Stone the Crows, and they were looking for a lead singer. Miller came here:

    T REX


    Around August 1976, Marc Bolan changes T Rex completely, only keeping Dino Dines, who recruits his old mate Miller Anderson:

    Miller left the band to join Donovan for a tour. And sometime later, when he was thinking of coming back to T. Rex, Marc Bolan´s sad death happened in the form of car accident, on September 16th, 1977.

    Miller didn´t play in any Donovan album, although he appears in a photo in the album Donovan (1977, Rak). But all the guitars in that album were played by the great, late Isaac Guillory. The album was recorded at The Chateau in France with Mickie Most producing. Then, they toured USA and Europe as special guest with Yes, promoting the album.

    At some point, the backing band was reduced to a duo, plus Donovan:

    THE DUKES


    It was around 1979, when Miller and Ronnie Leahy start a new band, called The Dukes:

    THE DUKES #1
    1979
    Miller Anderson
    guitar, vocals
    Ronnie Leahy
    keyboards
    Colin Allen
    drums
    + bassist unknown to me. Help!

    But they soon changed the rhythm section.

    The Dukes added the great Jimmy McCulloch:

    Miller Anderson
    guitar, vocals
    Jimmy McCulloch
    guitar, vocals
    Charlie Tumahai
    bass
    Ronnie Leahy
    keyboards

    They recorded their only album with two guest drummers: Stuart Elliott and Barry De Souza.

    For live concerts, The Dukes get drummer Nick Trevisick:

    Jimmy McCulloch
    guitar, vocals
    Charlie Tumahai

    (died)ê

    They toured supporting Wishbone Ash.

    They had a minor success with the single ´Hearts in trouble´, and soon after that, Jimmy McCulloch sadly died.

    The Dukes carried on with Mick Grabham:

    THE DUKES #4

    Miller Anderson
    guitar, vocals
    Charlie Tumahai
    bass, vocals
    Ronnie Leahy

    MOUNTAIN


    The thing started as a collaboration between Ian Hunter and Corky Laing, who was the drummer in Mountain. They wrote several songs together, and Ian called Miller to sing and play guitar there. But next step was calling Leslie West, so the project was called Mountain again circa October 1982. Miller then had to switch to bass tasks:

    MOUNTAIN #?
    Oct 82-Dec 82
    Leslie West
    guitar, vocals
    Miller Anderson
    vocals, bass
    Corky Laing
    drums

    They started recording an album, Go for your life, but Miller realized his part was to be too small, so he left them. Some of his contributions are in the album, although most of it went uncredited. Mark Clarke was called to record the bass tracks, and Pete Solley was the producer. It still keeps Ian Hunter appearance too, on keyboards.

    Other info on members of Mountain (I know up to 12 members)
    To be covered (11): Eddie Black, Mark Clarke, Steve Knight, Corky Laing, Bob Mann, Felix Pappalardi, David Perry, Richie Scarlett, Allan Schwartzberg, Norman D Smart, Leslie West

    CHICKEN SHACK #?

    Stan Webb

    SPENCER DAVIS GROUP


    The Spencer Davis Group lineup around 1988 was:

    SPENCER DAVIS GROUP #?
    1988
    Spencer Davis
    vocals
    Chris Farlowe
    vocals
    Miller Anderson
    guitar, vocals
    Colin Hodgkinson
    bass, vocals
    Zoot Money
    keyboards, vocals
    Pete York
    drums

    They released a live album, Extremely live at Birmingham Town Hall. Miller is great in ´Feets too big´, and the funny ´Ain’t nothin’ shakin’ but the bacon´. Great guitar solo in ´The thrill is gone´ and perfect work on ´Stormy Monday´.

    PETE YORK BAND


    They toured Germany during November and December 1988, under the name of Pete York´s R&B Revue:

    PETE YORK BAND #?
    Nov 88-Dec 88
    Chris Farlowe
    vocals
    Colin Hodgkinson
    bass
    Eddie Hardin
    keyboards
    Pete York
    drums

    Colin was part of a band called Pete York & Superblues, based in Germany. The band was another variation from later Spencer Davis Group lineups, and reunites again some veterans from the British blues-rock scene:

    PETE YORK BAND #?
    ?
    Chris Farlowe
    vocals
    Colin Hodgkinson
    bass
    Tony Ashton
    keyboards
    Pete York
    drums

    They played some live footage for German TV.

    There's a live album recorded with this (great) lineup:

    keyboards
    Dick Morrissey

    Superblues is a very good album, with renditions of the Billie Holliday classic ´Lover man´, Chris Farlowe´s early hit ´Out of time´, as well as some rock'n'roll classics, ´High heel sneakers´ and ´Johnny B. Goode´. Miller really shines on the tracks ´Dimples´, ´Born again / Get back´ and ´Resurrection shuffle´.

    In October and November 1989, we can find another edition of The Olympic Rock & Blues Circus, led by Pete York:

    X-T-REX


    As we can guess by the name, X.T.Rex was a sort of tribute to T.Rex. Miller and Dino Dines team with singer Darryl Read around 1993:

    MILLER ANDERSON BAND (again)


    Miller Anderson also played solo with no backing players during several periods of his career. For example, he played at the Blackheath Concert Halls in South London on September 13th, 1993 with great acoustic guitarists John Renbourn (from Pentangle) and the late ones Bert Jansch (also from Pentangle) and Davy Graham. Miller went on to do several gigs supporting Bert.

    MILLER ANDERSON BAND #?

    He also toured, playing solo, during January and February 1994, supporting the late Alan Hull. Then, he was to record an album with people from the blues band Buick 6, but that finally never happened.

    Miller Anderson and Colin Hodgkinson appear as a trio with former Back Door drummer, Tony Hicks, in the Open Air Festival in June 1994:

    I'm not sure about the name of the band, and if they were accompanied by more musicians. Did anyone see them to tell me a review?

    DEEP PURPLE (touring troupe)


    Deep Purple decided recording their concerto with orchestra after 30 years. It was followed by a long tour, where the band tried to enjoy a wide celebration with friends. Apart from the concerto itself, every member of the band played some of his solo material, backed with assorted friends and colleagues. Miller Anderson went with them in order to sing some of the Jon Lord material, thus appearing in the 2CD live. I'll write the complete credits of the album when I get my copy back from a friend who asked me to lend it to him. :)


    MILLER ANDERSON BAND (again)


    In October 2000, Miller Anderson was touring with Deep Purple. But he also played a private gig with some of his best mates from the tour:

    AND MORE...


    Miller has also recorded a soundtrack, but I've never managed to know for which movie was made. Any help?

    DISCOGRAPHY: (80 albums known to me - Status: Quite advanced)

    OWN ALBUMS (10 credits)
    • Bright city - Miller Anderson (September 1971)

      • Members: Miller Anderson + Eric Dillon, Lyn Dobson (RIP: Dino Dines, Gary Thain)
      • Guests: Mick Weaver + Madeline Bell, Junior Campbell, Neil Hubbard, Liza Strike (RIP: Harry Beckett)
      • Producer: Neil Slaven
      • Comments: Miller Anderson recorded his first solo album, Bright city, in 1971, soon after he left Keef Hartley Band. That's why we can find here many of his bandmates here: the late, much-missed Gary Thain, Mick Weaver and Peter Dino Dines. Later CD reissues contain 1 bonus live track.
      • My opinion: It's a fantastic and very fine album. Some of my favourite tracks are ´High tide, high water´ and ´Alice mercy´ to name a few, although all the tracks are really superb.
    • Extremely live at Birmingham Town Hall - C. Farlowe - S. Davis - P. York - C. Hodgkinson - Z. Money - M. Anderson (1988) (LIVE)

      • Members: Miller Anderson, Spencer Davis, Chris Farlowe, Colin Hodgkinson, Zoot Money, Pete York
      • Comments: Recorded live in July 1988.
      • My opinion: Miller are Colin are great in ´Feets too big´, and the funny ´Ain’t nothin’ shakin’ but the bacon´. Great guitar solo in ´The thrill is gone´ and perfect work in ´Stormy Monday´ (also featuring a bass solo by Colin Hodgkinson).
    • Celtic moon - Miller Anderson (March 1998)

      • Members: Miller Anderson + Colin Hodgkinson
      • Guests: Wolfgang Norman Dalheimer + Jackie Carter, Wolfgang Haffner, Olaf Kubler
      • Producer: Frank Diez
      • Comments: This is Miller´s second solo album, 17 years after his first one. Recorded by Miller Anderson (guitar, vocals), Colin Hodgkinson (bass), Wolfgang Norman Dalheimer (keyboards), Olaf Kübler (sax) and Wolfgang Haffner (drums). Produced by guitarist Frank Diez (Colin Hodgkinson's partner in The Electric Blues Duo).
      • My opinion: A superb album, if you ask me, mostly acoustic. It starts with a superb song, ´Fog on the highway´. My other favourite song here is ´Two ships´ (with a superb work by Colin Hodgkinson). There's a song, the very beautiful ´Fool's gold´, that was also recorded in his Hemlock album, in 1973. And there's a cover of a traditional song, ´Tamp ´em up solid´ that was also covered by Ry Cooder.
    • Bluesheart - Miller Anderson (2003)

      • Guests: Dave Baldwin, Norman Beaker, Paul Burgess, John Price + Doreen Chanter, Irene Chanter (RIP: Jon Lord)
