Synopsis

Amazon.com
The key to the strengths and the weaknesses of Best of Roger Miller is in its subtitle: His Greatest Songs. No question, Miller's "King of the Road" and "Dang Me" were among the most innovative and entertaining songs in country music history, and his "Husbands and Wives" among the most moving. But while this set includes many of his greatest songs, they are here in rerecorded versions only, and though faithful to the original arrangements, they also lack the madcap punch and free-swinging acoustic rhythms of his mid-'60s radio hits. Which is just to say that this collection is certainly enjoyable but most likely for Roger Miller completists only. --David Cantwell

A Great CD

"My dad was a Roger Miller fan, I have been for 40+ years and now my 12 year old daughter is a huge fan. It says a lot for music when it can appeal to such a broad spectrum across the generations. Thanks Roger for the great music."
