From the liner notes: Roger Miller's middle monicker could well be "Clean-Sweep" (and we're not referring to janitorial duties). The song and his renditions thereof in this album represent two major clean sweeps of awards. The National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, through polling its membership in all phases of the record industry, voted the multi-talented Miller every possible award in the Country & Western category. The Juke Box Operators of America reaffirmed the greatness of the Miller songs and vocals when he got the only two possible awards given yearly by Capitol Music Operators of America.
I'll bet you were WONDERING how they managed to cram a whole 23:45 onto TWO SIDES. Answer: it's country, y'all
The contagious standout guitar backing is played by Miller himself. WOW

Pure gold he were.
(edited by Eddie Famous on 21.8.03 2010) The ghost of a steam train - echoes down my track It's at the moment bound for nowhere - just going round and round Playground kids and creaking swings - lost laughter in the breeze I could go on for hours and I probably will - but I'd sooner put some joy back In this town called malice

Oh what springs to mind is the Hullabaloo episode with Jerry Lewis (co-hosting with my man Gary) and that was one of the songs he had to sing during the Top Pop Medley. He gave it his all and then some until the end when he totally rolled his eyes and shook his head to indicate that the song was so beneath him. Ah genius.
The only thing I enjoy more than doing the crossword puzzle is actually finishing it.

Wait. Are you saying JERRY LEWIS sang it?
Oh, hey - I could look this up myself. Here we go (tvtome.com)
Whoa, I'm sure I've seen this but have totally spaced on it.
That's pretty damn cool. I love Spinal Tap, and probably would never have thought of that. Of course, I haven't seen the cover yet either. Thanks! I'll have to check that out. "Very provocative indeed" drew2
