    One of many Roger Miller releases called KING OF THE ROAD after his breezy country-pop hit, this excellent collection by the Bear Family label presents many of the finest 1960s tunes by the charming songwriter-turned-performer. While the set includes the beloved title track, it also features a number of the deep-voiced Texas singer's silly novelty numbers (the goofy "Dang Me," the hard-drinking "Chug-A-Lug") and other more serious hits, such as the wistful "Engine, Engine #9" and the woeful "One Dyin' and a Buryin'." Though there are more comprehensive Miller anthologies on the market (see Mercury Nashville's three-disc box set of the same title), this compilation, which is packed with 29 concise tracks, stands out as one of the best single-disc surveys of the amiable troubadour's pop/country-crossover years.
