I can't remember not knowing who this is. I know my Mom bought his 'Golden Hits' album when I was 5, and I just have a few hazy memories prior to that. I think she may also have had this one, because I remember being very familiar with the song 'The Moon Is High' which is on this album and not on the 'Golden Hits' release. But Mom's not around these days to ask, and for some unexplained reason she threw all her records away long before she died. The world may never know...I sure don't. Roger Miller - Roger and Out

Strangely, I sometimes have occasion to think kindly about Roger Miller. He was kooky and a little bit cool. He was being strange long before Lyle Lovett came along and showed people that country singers aren't all right in the head. King of the Road might come to mind now and then, and I often remind whiny family members "you can't roller skate in a buffalo herd, but you can be happy if you've a mind to".
