My Music Listening Journal: Day 105/366: Thursday April 14, 2020.
- ROGER MILLER: THE AMAZING: 1967: 2 1/2 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: VINYL ALBUM: Early Roger Miller- released after he had hit it big. There was no real info on the album cover- no liner notes etc- so when the album was over I looked to see who wrote the songs- I knew many were covers- and wasn’t surprised to see that there were two Roger Miller authored songs- and they were the two best on the album “Playboy” and “Poor Little John.”
- DAVE MASON: LET IT FLOW: 1977: 4 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: VINYL ALBUM: Back in 1977 one of my favorite singles- this was when I was first getting into music seriously- was “We Just Disagree”which went to #12 on the singles chart. I didn’t get this album until January but I did buy the single back then. Pretty good album.
- ROGER MILLER: GOLDEN HITS: 1965: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: VINYL ALBUM: There would be more great songs to come but this best of released in the 1965 captures the great Miller hits of 1964-65. 12 songs- including “King Of The Hill”, “Dang Me”, England Swings”- all essentials. I bought the Roger Miller 3 CD box set back in the 1990’s when it came out- and recently have been finding old Miller albums at used record shops and have been buying every one I see -that is in good shape.
