Personnel: Merle Haggard (vocals, guitar).Early in his career, Merle Haggard realized that he could transform the events of his life--including childhood poverty and a stint in prison--into compelling, honest music. He proceeded to mine the vein of his personal experiences often and with great success, coming up with such classics as Mama Tried, Hungry Eyes and Okie From Muskogee. Ten of these songs appear on COUNTRY PRIDE, an album that goes a long way toward explaining how Haggard earned the nickname the working man's poet.Haggard has a natural affinity for American conservatism, to which he gives voice in Okie From Muskogee, The Fightin' Side Of Me, I Think We're Living In The Good Old Days and The Roots Of My Raising.

Merle Haggard has always been a maverick, and it's refreshing how he hasn't changed his approach or attitude to things in a 60-some-year career as a musician, singer, and songwriter -- he has excelled at all three of those things, and if The Hag is a brand at this point, it's a brand with integrity. This 20-track, single-disc set collects his biggest and most enduring (and endearing) songs, from the whose-side-am-I-on novelty Okie from Muskogree to the wise tenderness of Mama Tried, the resolute The Fightin' Side of Me, and the weary determination of If We Make It Through December. Haggard has always been a concise, careful, and emotionally balanced songwriter, and his recorded legacy is much stronger and varied than many people realize -- these 20 tracks are only the very tip of the...

Personnel includes: Merle Haggard, Conway Twitty.This is less a concept album than a marketing ploy. It's a collection of previously released Elvis Presley covers (no dates given, but given the sound, which is occasionally mono, going back at least to the mid-'60s) by two great country singers.Conway Twitty, of course, was originally marketed as a rockabilly artist, so it comes as less of a shock to hear his Elvis impersonation on Blue Moon. Merle Haggard, who has a bit of the jazz singer in him, doesn't take to this exercise quite as naturally, but he's mostly convincing and his version of In the Ghetto in particular is deeply affecting. ELVIS FAVORITES is a mishmash, but fun.

Personnel includes: Merle Haggard (vocals, guitar); The Jordanaires (background vocals).As its title indicates, MY FAREWELL TO ELVIS is Merle Haggard's tribute to Elvis Presley. Recorded shortly after Presley's death, FAREWELL grew from a single tribute song, Haggard's own From Graceland To The Promised Land, to a full album fleshed out by Haggard's versions of Presley songs. To make things more authentic, the Jordanaires were brought in to sing background vocals.Haggard's sole original number, which peaked at number nine on the country chart, is also the only track here given the classic Haggard treatment. All the other arrangements on FAREWELL straddle country and rock and roll. Haggard's at his best on such quiet ballads as Blue Christmas and Are You Lonesome Tonight? Hardcore Merle... Less

Personnel includes: Merle Haggard (vocals, guitar); Randy Travis (vocals).With his late-1970s album ALL NIGHT LONG Merle Haggard returned to his honky-tonk barroom roots in a collection of uptempo songs performed with a smoking, stripped down band. Sung with then up-and-coming singer Randy Travis, the title track is a fiddle- and pedal steel-laced homage to the king of Western swing, Bob Wills, while The Farmer's Daughter is a traditional tearjerker, A Bar in Bakersfield is a semi- autobiographical honky-tonk special, and Haggard just wouldn't be Haggard without courting some controversy with the unapologetically redneck I'm a White Boy.

The 1980s were a tough time for country music; mainstream Nashville was filled with watered-down MOR, and classic country singers like Waylon Jennings and Johnny Cash were foundering. True to form, the famously willful Merle Haggard stuck to his guns throughout this dark era, and his stint on Epic was full of tradition- minded, emotion-filled country music as powerful as anything being recorded at the time, if not as arresting as his legendary '60s work.Big City, from Haggard's 1981 album of the same name, became something of a staple tune. The randy Let's Chase Each Other Around the Room reveals not only Merle's rascally nature, but his ongoing infatuation with the Western Swing sound. The mournful ballads Going Where the Lonely Go and Are the Good Times Really Over (I Wish a Buck Was... Less

A compelling argument can be made that Merle Haggard has been the most important country artist to emerge since the 1950s (Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings are his only true competition), and HAG: THE BEST OF MERLE HAGGARD supports that argument with 26 incontrovertible pieces of evidence. The only single-disc compilation to span the whole of Haggard's career (encompassing all of his many label changes), HAG contains the lion's share of the country legend's greatest hits, including Branded Man, Mama Tried, and Okie from Muskogee, alongside duets with Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson. Haggard's voice and picking come through like reliable old friends, but it is his spectacular songwriting that really shines. The 2006 reissue features beautifully remastered sound.

(My Friends Are Gonna Be) Strangers was originally Haggard's first hit single, while Today I Started Loving You Again, written with his second wife, Bonnie Owens, started out as the B-side of his 1968 hit The Ballad of Bonnie and Clyde. This collection also features a variety of semi- autobiographical songs, like Mama's Hungry Eyes and Branded Man, as well as some of Haggard's well-known redneck anthems, including Okie From Muskogee, Fightin' Side of Me, and I Take a Lot of Pride in What I Am.

During the period covered by this disc (1969 to 1972) Haggard's music was particularly focused on blue-collar concerns.THE BEST OF THE BEST kicks off with a live recording of Okie From Muskogee, the song that earned Haggard wide recognition among non-country audiences, and also includes its companion piece, the undeniably reactionary The Fightin' Side Of Me. Also included are Hungry Eyes, a beautiful and touching song recalling Haggard's youth among California's migrant workers; the outlaw classic Mama Tried; the anthemic Workin' Man Blues; and Silver Wings, a poignant break-up song.

This concise collection of Merle Haggard's chart-topping songs shows both his writing skill and his ability to unerringly hit a nerve with the American public. Blue-collar songs, drinking songs, outlaw songs, and prison songs are all well-represented here. Barroom songs like I Think I'll Just Stay Here and Drink, well-known redneck anthems like The Fightin' Side of Me and Okie From Muskogee, and hard-edged yet deeply felt songs like If We Make It Through December and It's Not Love (But It's Not Bad) illustrate Haggard's identification with his hardscrabble roots and his remarkable facility with a lyric.

Though these recordings, made sometime in the 1990s, aren't the original versions, the performances by Haggard and his band on this selection of some of his most popular songs are uniformly excellent. (My Friends Are Gonna Be) Strangers was originally Haggard's first hit single, while Today I Started Loving You Again, written with his second wife, Bonnie Owens, started out as the B-side of his 1968 hit The Ballad of Bonnie and Clyde. This collection also features a variety of semi- autobiographical songs, like Mama's Hungry Eyes and Branded Man, as well as some of Haggard's well-known redneck anthems, including Okie From Muskogee, Fightin' Side of Me, and I Take a Lot of Pride in What I Am.

This collection of country blues, ragtime, ballads, and just plain country songs with the word blues in the title highlights Merle Haggard's considerable knowledge of country and popular music history. Haggard puts in assured and often compelling vocal performances on Jimmie Rodgers' early-1930s T.B. Blues, the Delmore Brothers' mid-'40s Blues Stay Away From Me, and Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys' Brain Cloudy Blues, while Blues For Dixie is an appealing blend of Dixieland jazz and country.

This collection of Merle Haggard hits merely scratches the surface of the Bakersfield singer's prolific output, but with songs like the redneck anthem Okie From Muskogee, which earned the ex-convict a pardon from Ronald Reagan, the prison lament Sing Me Back Home, covered by artists including the Flying Burrito Brothers, and the bad boy classic Mama Tried, it's still a superlative set. Other highlights include the beautiful Silver Wings, the patriotic Fightin' Side of Me, and the timeless barroom anthem Swinging Doors.

The 1980s were a tough time for country music; mainstream Nashville was filled with watered-down MOR, and classic country singers like Waylon Jennings and Johnny Cash were foundering. True to form, the famously willful Merle Haggard stuck to his guns throughout this dark era, and his stint on Epic was full of tradition- minded, emotion-filled country music as powerful as anything being recorded at the time, if not as arresting as his legendary '60s work.Big City, from Haggard's 1981 album of the same name, became something of a staple tune. The randy Let's Chase Each Other Around the Room reveals not only Merle's rascally nature, but his ongoing infatuation with the Western Swing sound. The mournful ballads Going Where the Lonely Go and Are the Good Times Really Over (I Wish a Buck Was... Less

NUMBER ONE SONGS is a budget-priced collection of 10 of Merle Haggard's most popular songs from his late 1960s and early '70s heyday. Highlights include his first hit, Mama Tried; the mid-'70s recession anthem If We Make It Thru December; and fan favorite Workin' Man Blues. Purists should note that the version of Okie From Muskogee included is the studio take, not the more familiar live version, and that many of the early songs are presented not in their original mono mixes, but in slightly later stereo re-recordings.

A compelling argument can be made that Merle Haggard has been the most important country artist to emerge since the 1950s (Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings are his only true competition), and HAG: THE BEST OF MERLE HAGGARD supports that argument with 26 incontrovertible pieces of evidence. The only single-disc compilation to span the whole of Haggard's career (encompassing all of his many label changes), HAG contains the lion's share of the country legend's greatest hits, including Branded Man, Mama Tried, and Okie from Muskogee, alongside duets with Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson. Haggard's voice and picking come through like reliable old friends, but it is his spectacular songwriting that really shines. The 2006 reissue features beautifully remastered sound.

Liner Note Author: Theresa Lane Haggard. Recording information: Hag's Studio. Photographer: Travis Huggett.Perhaps there's a measure of defiance in the title of Merle Haggard's 2010 album I Am What I Am, but it's also a statement of plain fact: almost 50 years into a recording career, there's no changing the fact that Hag is who is he is, and he's comfortable in his own skin, broken-in but not worn-out, never pushing too hard but never coasting, either. Sometimes Haggard's easy touch is too light, slipping into sleepiness, but the striking thing about I Am What I Am is its casual mastery, the subtle shading in his vocal phrasing can make his songwriting appear effortless. And to an extent, it is: Hag's tending the same fields he has for years, sliding into swaying ballads, stepping it up... Less
