Although Roger Miller is best known for his 1960s country-pop hits (most notably "King of the Road" and "Dang Me"), the Texas-born singer/songwriter received acclaim-and a Tony Award-late in his life for his work on the 1985 Broadway musical BIG RIVER: THE ADVENTURES OF HUCKLEBERRY FINN. Sadly, Miller died in '92, while only in his mid-50s, leaving BIG RIVER as his last major achievement. Though Miller doesn't sing on the album, it marks a latter-day high point in his relatively short but impressive career, and is recommended listening for his devoted fans.
