Another Starday Saturday here at Scratchy Attic in today's post of the 1965 LP "Wild Child Roger Miller - Madcap Sensation of Country Music". The recordings contained on the album were recorded 1957-1960 when Miller was a struggling honky-tonk singer who had been brought to the attention of Starday by his buddy George Jones. In fact, ol' George can be clearly heard singing the harmony on "You're Forgetting Me". These recordings were originally singles, demos, and uncredited cover tracks on early Starday collections which featured covers of contemporary country hits of the time. The LP was obviously issued to capitalize on Miller's mainstream 1960s success, but it preserves some great classic raw Starday honky-tonk in the process. Enjoy!
