Notes

Roger Miller is known for his hit song "King Of The Road" but he's more of a king of the country novelty song. He's at his best when mixing the Nashville sound with his tongue-in-cheek sense of humor. This album, Man Of Distinction, is a partial re-release of his 1965 Smash Records album "The 3rd Time Around", but the album art is reworked from his release "Words & Music". Released on Wing/Mercury it's missing the songs Water Dog & Swing Low Swingin' Chariot. You're left with a weird mix of songs. It's full of somber tracks like The Last Word In Lonesome Is Me & One Dyin' & A Buryin'. Kansas City Star & This Town return to his familiar light-hearted style. The hightlights of the album are Swiss Maid, a simple love song, & the foot tapping It Happened Just That Way. (SOURCE: http://fo-fi.blogspot.com/2013/06/roger-miller-man-of-distinction-1969.html)
