Glen Campbell & Roger Miller

I was looking to post Roger Miller playing his big hit King of the Road. But I came across this instead. I’d forgotten what a talented and unusual scat-singer, Roger was. I also forgot that Glen was such a great guitar picker.

Take notice of how, in the video, Glen is controlling the volume/tone coming from his guitar during different parts of the song instead of having a sound guy do it on a mixing board offstage? Unusual for a big star like that to do that sorta stuff. Enjoy!
