Mrs. Miller - Mrs. Miller's Greatest Hits (1966)
Mrs.Miller. What can one say about Mrs.Elva Miller? When I first heard Mrs.Miller, I was speechless. I just couldn't believe what I was hearing. After the initial shock, I laughed so hard that tears ran down my face. Then I couldn't get enough. I have to say that Mrs.Miller is an acquired taste, and it is certainly not for those with sensitive hearing or weak stomachs. But I'm one of those folks who appreciates musicians such as Mrs.Miller, and I think you will, too, after you give her a listen. This was her debut album, although the title ("Greatest Hits") makes you think that there were other albums before this. She ended up recording several other albums and also appeared on some soundtracks. If you want to find out more about Mrs.Miller, I suggest you visit Mrs.Miller's World - and join the fan club (I did!)! Why do I listen to Mrs.Miller? Because she makes me smile and laugh when I'm feeling down. God bless Mrs.Miller.
