There hasn't been a comprehensive collection of country genius Roger Miller's very first recordings. In fact, no one was even sure who he'd recorded for and when - until Bear Family began researching! Bear Family provides a complete picture of the early years of Miller's career, from his 1957 first recordings for Starday, through his two Decca singles in 1959, to his 'sound-alike' recordings he did for Starday in 1960, this is essential listening for fans of real honky-tonk country music. Miller was a country songwriter of the highest caliber, and these sides may reveal a side of him that you didn't know before. Songs like "A Man Like Me" and "The Wrong Kind Of Girl" are some of the best country music to come out of Nashville in the 1950s.
