The Anthology... So Far is a triple live compilation album by Ringo Starr released on 5 February 2001 by Eagle in the UK,[nb 1][3] while the US release occurred on 24 July by Koch.[4] Rounding up the bulk of the material on 1990's Ringo Starr and His All-Starr Band, 1993's Ringo Starr and His All Starr Band Volume 2: Live From Montreux and 1997's Ringo Starr and His Third All-Starr Band-Volume 1 – in addition to previously unheard material recorded live in 1995, 1997 and 2000, The Anthology... So Far stands as an exhaustive collection of Starr's concert highlights spanning a decade.

Over the course of the collection Starr is joined by Randy Bachman, Gary Brooker, Jack Bruce, Tim Cappello, Eric Carmen, Felix Cavaliere, Clarence Clemons, Burton Cummings, Rick Danko, Dr. John, Dave Edmunds, John Entwistle, Mark Farner, Peter Frampton, Levon Helm, Jim Keltner, Simon Kirke, Nils Lofgren, Billy Preston, Mark Rivera, Todd Rundgren, Timothy B. Schmit, Zak Starkey and Joe Walsh.

Critically well-received, The Anthology... So Far failed to reach the charts upon its release.
