We don't know how it's possible, but this is the first time a single-disc Roger Miller compilation has ever been put together! So many classics here: his Top 10 pop hits King of the Road and Dang Me ; his country smashes Chug-A-Lug; Engine Engine #9; England Swings; South; River in the Rain (last two from his musical Big River ), and 13 more!

After the last few single disc compilations on Roger Miller, it's great to have one that has over a dozen songs! It's almost a shame to see "Golden Hits" go out of print because it holds such sentimental value for me. I've owned it on 8-track, cassette, CD, as well as two different vinyl issues. That familiar blue, white and gold cover is something I'll never forget. But at least this current release sports the excellent photo from the cover of Miller's 1969 self-titled album (the one with "Me and Bobby McGee"). It's a beautiful package with a booklet containing several more photos and nice liner notes by Robyn Flans. The disc was produced by the meticulous Andy McKaie who compiled the 20 track set with Cary Mansfield. It's a solid collection that contains most of Miller's best known hits. Now, a lot of these songs are very short and there was certainly room to expand this set to 25 or even 30 tracks. However, after the 12 track "Golden Hits" and "Millenium Collection" discs and the 1997 11 track "The Hits", this is certainly a big improvement, quantity-wise. And since the two 1992 "best-of's" are out of print ("Country Tunesmith"/"King Of The Road"), this is your best bet for a single disc retrospective of classic Roger Miller. Some further selling points for the collection is that while the "King Of The Road" box set contains mono versions of most of the singles, the same songs are in stereo on this disc. While I'm a definite fan of mono, I believe Roger Miller's recordings sound much better in stereo. And while "Golden Hits" also contains his hits in stereo, this is definitely a considerable upgrade in mastering, resulting in greatly improved sound quality.Read more ›

All Time Greatest Hits nicely captures Roger Miller's evolution as an artist during his years on the Smash/Mercury label. It begins with his silly novelty hits "Dang Me," "Chug A Lug," and "Do Wacka Do" from 1964. Miller's 1965 follow-ups added wit to normally somber subjects like destitution ("King Of The Road") and abandonment ("Engine Engine #9"). He then played it straight with the painful observations "Last Word In Lonesome Is Me" and "Husbands And Wives" as well as the joyous "Walking In The Sunshine."
By 1968, Miller was no longer writing his hits. Instead, he gave exposure to new songwriters, being the first to chart with Kris Kristofferson's "Me And Bobby McGee" and Bobby Russell's "Little Green Apples." Miller left Mercuy in the early '70s and, except for some side projects not included here (scoring Disney's Robin Hood, recording "Old Friends" with Willie Nelson and Ray Price), experienced little success over the next decade. A final creative burst came in 1985, when he wrote the music for the Tony Award winning Big River (Miller's top 40 single "River In The Rain" from Big River serves as a collection-ending bonus track).
This twenty-track retrospective is easily the best single disc of Roger Miller's classic recordings. To get a more comprehensive look at his peak years (including the Christmas classic "Old Toy Trains"), you would need to get the three-disc King Of The Road box set.

The only reason for not buying this album is if you intend to go for the box set. The three Roger Miller compilations currently available offer about the same value in terms of tracks per dollar. This particular one is a genuine 'Greatest Hits' album and you won't go wrong if you buy it.

Roger was a little bit Country, a little bit Folk, and a whole lot genius. He was a true modern balladeer and a great folk poet. The lines "Roses are red, violets are purple, sugar is sweet and so's maple surple" are just about perfect. He was hilariously funny, lovably roguish and musically gifted. Like many humorists, he suffered from the critics' attitude of not taking humor seriously. Listen to this collection and you'll learn just how great he really was.

I am a modest fan of country music, but a big fan of novelty tunes. Roger Miller's strengths were as a creative song writer, an outstanding interpreter of songs, a distinctive voice, excellent vocal control, a natural satirist/comedian, and exuberance, all of which are portrayed in most of his recordings. I consider him to be the best of all novelty song writers and performers. You Can't Rollerskate In A Buffalo Herd is a creative song characterized by ridiculous lyrics, a catchy melody, and exuberant vocals. One Dying And A Burying and My Uncle Used To Love Me But He Died are vintage, novelty songs, which should put a smile on your face. Chug-A-Lug has ridiculous lyrics, but is one of my favorite Roger Miller tunes. If you didn't know the meaning of the words, it would sound like a serious song because of Roger's interpretative ability and dead pan humor. The classic Dang Me has a bouncy melody and wacky lyrics which actually make sense. Engine Engine Number 9 is another favorite of mine. Do-Wacka-Do is a nonsense song with Roger's unique vocal gyrations.
He was a versatile song writer/performer who wrote several classics. England Swings is one of my all time favorite songs; a great, infectious, upbeat song with outstanding lyrics, which was covered by several artists, but none approach the quality of Roger's recording. I have listened to this song a few hundred times and enjoy it as much today as when I first heard it. Little Green Apples is another classic which was covered by many artists. I consider King Of The Road to be one of the best country songs of all time.
This is an outstanding moderately priced CD for fans of country music or novelty songs.
