AllMusic Review by

Where The Best of Roger Miller, Vol. 1: Country Tunesmith concentrated on Miller's lesser-known honky tonk numbers and hits he wrote for other artists, Best of Roger Miller, Vol. 2: King of the Road is strictly Miller's biggest hits. From the novelties of "Dang Me," "Chug-A-Lug," "Do-Wacka-Do," and "Kansas City Star" to the relatively straightforward "King of the Road" and "Engine Engine #9," all of Miller's big hits from the mid-'60s are included, as are selected lesser hits from the late '60s like "Little Green Apples" and "Me and Bobby McGee." Combined, Country Tunesmith and King of the Road offer a definitive overview of Roger Miller's career that even eclipses the subsequently released box set, King of the Road.
