The Best We Could Find (+3 That Never Escaped) (1988)

Updated: Mar 2

The Best We Could Find (+3 That Never Escaped) is a compilation album by Christian musician Steve Taylor, released in the fall of 1988 by Sparrow Records. This collection contains previously released material from his full-length Sparrow releases, Meltdown and On the Fritz, plus three unreleased tracks and a remix of "This Disco" from the EP Trans-Atlantic Remixes. The CD version has the entire I Want to Be a Clone EP with all six songs as bonus tracks. There are no songs from Taylor's most recent album at the time, I Predict 1990. This also serves as the final release on the Sparrow label as Taylor started to form his side project rock super group Chagall Guevara.
