Possibly The Best Of His MCA Albums, It Includes "Red Bandana," "My Own Kind Of A Hat," And A Brooding Meditation On The Emptiness Of Stardom Called "Footlights." Dan Cooper, AMG.... more details

Haggard, Merle - Pride In What I Am Pride In What I Am
Country New - LP SKAO 168 Capitol
Sealed 1969 Gatefold Original. “Continuing With The Subtle Folk Streak Running Beneath The Legend Of Bonnie & Clyde And Mama Tried, Merle Haggard Turned In One Of His Finest Efforts To Date In 1969's Pride In What I Am. While There Are No Flat-Out Classics Outside Of "I Take A Lot Of Pride In What I Am" -- It's The Only Track On The Album Here That Was A Hit -- The Album Is Certainly Not Lacking In Strong Material. In Fact, It Gains Considerable Strength From A Diversity Of Material, Where The Rolling, Folk-Tinged Sound Epitomized By The Title Song Is Balanced By Twangy, Spare Country And Bits Of Hard Honky Tonk, Blues, And Cowboy, Not To Mention The Slyly Inventive Arrangement On His Version Of Lefty Frizzell's “It Meant Goodbye To Me When You Said Hello To Him." There Are Also Hints Of The Direction Hag Would Take In The Near Future, Including A Jimmie Rodgers Song (His Tribute To The Singing Brakeman, Same Train, Different Time, Would Follow Next), And The Encroaching Celebration Of A Time Passed, Though His Cover Of Red Simpson's "I Think We're Livin' In The Good Old Days." There Is Another Simpson Cover In "Somewhere On Skid Row," But What Fuels Pride In What I Am Is A Selection Of Graceful, Low-Key Minor Masterworks From Haggard Himself, Who Explores Gentler Territory With "The Day The Rains Came" And "I Can't Hold Myself In Line," While Kicking Up The Tempo With The Delightful "I'm Bringin' Home Good News" And Laying Back With The Steady-Rolling "I Just Want To Look At You One More Time." None Of These May Be Among His Most Celebrated Songs, But They're All Small Gems That Illustrate What A Fine Songwriter He Is.” Stephen Thomas Erlewine, AMG.... more details
 
Haggard, Merle - Sing Me Back Home Sing Me Back Home
Country New - LP ST 2848 Capitol
Sealed 1968 Rainbow Label Stereo Original. “Sing Me Back Home Follows The Blueprint Of Merle Haggard's First Three Albums, Balancing A Hit Single With Album Tracks And A Couple Of Covers, But There Is A Difference. Where The Previous Album Branded Man Was A Transitional Album, Hinting That Haggard's Talents Were Deepening Substantially, Sing Me Back Home Is The Result Of The Flowering Of His Talent. Like Any '60s Country Album, There Are A Couple Of Throwaways (Like "The Bottle Let Me Down" Rewrite "I'll Leave The Bottle On The Bar"), But The Majority Of The Album Is Full Of Rich Material, From "The Son Of Hickory Holler's Tramp," "Good Times," And "Wine Take Me Away.” Stephen Thomas Erlewine, All Music Guide.... more details
 
Haggard, Merle - Someday We'll Look Back Someday We'll Look Back
Country New - LP ST 835 Capitol
Sealed, Rare 1971 Original. Clean Cut Out Hole. 5 Stars In All Music Guide. “Someday We'll Look Back Is A Terrific Early-'70s LP From Merle Haggard, One That Showcases Not Only His Exceptional Songwriting Skills, But Also His Rich, Subtle Eclectism. Much Of The Album Is Given Over To Ballads, Including Both Lush, String-Laden Country-Pop Crossovers And Simple, Folky Tunes, But There Are Also Hints Of Twangy Bakersfield Honky-Tonk And Blues, As Well As Western Swing. But What Really Makes The Record So Distinctive Is The Quality Of The Material. Haggard's Original Songs—Including "Someday We'll Look Back," "Tulare Dust," "I'd Rather Be Gone," "One Sweet Hello"—Are Uniformly Excellent, While He Invests Considerable Emotion Into Covers Of Tommy Collins' "Carolyn," Dallas Frazier And Elizabeth Montgomery's "California Cottonfields," And Roger Miller's "Train Of Life." The Result Is One Of The Finest Albums He Ever Recorded.” Stephen Thomas Erlewine, All Music Guide.... more details

Haggard, Merle - Let Me Tell You About A Song Let Me Tell You About A Song
Country New - LP ST 882 Capitol
Sealed 1972 Original. “Merle Haggard Designed 1972's Let Me Tell You About A Song As A Kind Of Musical Autobiography, Crafted In Equal Parts From Personal Reminiscence And From Songs That Formed The Core Of Hag The Musician. So, In A Way, The Album Brings Together Two Big Themes Within Haggard's Recording Career — Tribute Albums And A Rose-Colored, Nostalgic View Of The Past — And It Does So Smashingly. A Project Like This Can't Help But Succumb To Corniness On Occasion, Which This Certainly Does, Particularly In The Spoken Recitations That Pepper The Album And On The Hit Opening Track, "Daddy Frank (The Guitar Man)," A Tale About A Traveling Family Band With A Blind Father And A Deaf Mother Who "Read Our Lips And Helped The Family Sing," A Story That Haggard Says Explains Itself But Only Gets More Mystifying With Each Listen. Some Could Also Argue That His Tribute To His Recently Deceased Grandmother, "Grandma Harp," Is Also A Little Corny, But It Gets Through On Its Heart, And The Rest Of The Album Is So Remarkably Clear-Eyed, Even With Those Spoken Introductions, That It Makes Up For The Slight Silliness. The Album Is Pretty Evenly Divided Between Originals And Covers, And The Two Hits — The Aforementioned "Daddy Frank" And "Grandma Harp" — Are Actually The Slightest Numbers Here, Since They Sit Next To The Stark Autobiographical "They're Tearing The Labor Camps Down," The Beautiful Barroom Ballad "Turnin' Off A Memory," And "Irma Jackson," A Song About An Interracial Romance That Haggard Was Finally Able To Release On This Record. These Songs Are Contrasted By The Covers: One Song By Red Simpson, One By Red Foley, And Two Each By His Heroes Tommy Collins And Bob Wills.” - Stephen Thomas Erlewine, All Music Guide... more details

Haggard, Merle - Back To The Barrooms Back To The Barrooms
Country New - LP 5139 MCA
Sealed 1980 Original. "Memories And Drinks Don't Mix Too Well/Jukebox Records Don't Play Those Wedding Bells." So Begins "Misery And Gin," The Opening Track On Merle Haggard's Strongest — And Second From Last — Outing For MCA. While This Album Is Deservedly Known For Its Four Classic Drinking Songs — The Aforementioned Cut, "Back To The Barrooms," "I Don't Want To Sober Up Tonight," And "I Think I'll Just Stay Here And Drink" — What Back To The Barrooms Is Really About Is The Wreckage Caused By Broken Amorous Relationships And Boozy Escape As The Only Way To Cope. Produced By Jimmy Bowen With His Progressive Country Style, He Understood Haggard's Wish To Utilize Horns And Strings In Ways Not Necessarily In Concert With Traditional Country Music — À La Bob Wills — Yet To Write And Perform In Grand Honky Tonk Fashion. Other Than Haggard's Relationship With Lewis Talley At Columbia, The Bowen-Hag Collaboration Was His Most Successful Of The 1970s. Haggard Wrote Or Co-Wrote The Majority Of The Album, And, Whether Intentionally Or Not, It Coincides With The Beginnings Of His Troubles With His Then-Wife, Songwriter Leona Williams (Whose Co-Write With Haggard, "Can't Break The Habit," Appears Here) As Chronicled In His Autobiography, Sing Me Back Home. This Album Features Haggard's Most Consistent, Inspiring Performance Since He Left Capitol, And Was The Beginning Of A Creative Renaissance, Though The Personal Toll It Took On Him Would Prove Considerable.” – Thom Jurek, All Music Guide... more details
 
Haggard, Merle - My Love Affair With Trains My Love Affair With Trains
Country New - LP ST 11544 Capitol
Sealed 1976 Original. Clean Cut Out Hole. “For Anyone Who Has Followed Merle Haggard's Career Over The Decades, Train And Hobo Songs Seem To Be Recurrent In His Work, No Matter Which Decade — Or Century — He Recorded In. My Love Affair With Trains Is One Of The Last Two Records Haggard Cut For Capitol In 1975. It Is Also Is One Of Haggard's Trademark Concept Albums, Upon Which He Pays Tribute To And Laments The Railroads' Decline As A Centerpiece Of American Life. Haggard Has Made A Life In Music Of Charting The Previous And Its Decline In The Present. In Between Each Track, Hag Introduces The Next, As These Songs Cover Different Historical Eras. There's The Stunning Title Track Written By Dolly Parton; Stephen H. Lemberg's Corny But Nonetheless Compelling "Here Comes The Freedom Train"; Mark Yeary's "I Won't Give Up My Train," Which He Re-Recorded Later For MCA; Dave Kirby's "So Long Train Whistle" And "Where Have All The Hobos Gone"; As Well As "The Hobo." It Isn't Only In The Songs That Haggard Chronicles The Romance And Decline Of The American Railroad; The Grain Of His Voice Is A Lament, Full Of Mourning And A Genuine Bittersweet Grief — Haggard Grew Up On The Rail Lines As His Father Worked Them. Interestingly Enough, The Tune Of Haggard's To Appear Here Is "No More Trains To Ride"; He Introduces It With A Short Reflection On How It Had Become Damn Near Impossible To Hop A Freight To Ride Coast To Coast. The Oddest Inclusion Here Is The Jerry Jeff Walker/Jimmy Buffett Collaboration "Railroad Lady." Hag Justifies Its Inclusion By Saying It Was Stories Like This That Helped Further The Legend Of The Great Black Iron Horse. As Haggard's Records Go, My Love Affair With Trains May Seem A Bit Quaint In Retrospect, But Its Soul And Emotion Don't Date. There Is Great Truth In His Performances Of These Songs, And Like Virtually Everything He Records, He Tells The Truth Through These Songs As He Sees It.” – Thom Jurek, All Music Guide... more details

Haggard, Merle - I Love Dixie Blues I Love Dixie Blues
Country New - LP ST 11200 Capitol
Sealed 1973 Live Recording With Custom Hype Sticker On Shrink. “I Love Dixie Blues Was Recorded Live In New Orleans, Not Only With The Strangers But With A Brass Section To Give The Music The Feel Of Authentic Dixieland Jazz. Haggard's Gamble Works Quite Well, Since The Brass Section Never Feels Like It's Grafted Onto The Core Band — They Sound Integrated, Unlike His Previous Experiments With Dixieland Horns. Of Course, It Helps That Hag Has Picked A Selection Of Songs That Emphasizes These Strengths, Such As His Own Anthem "Everybody's Had The Blues," "Way Down Yonder In New Orleans," "Lovesick Blues," And "The Emptiest Arms In The World." The Only Thing That Slows The Album's Momentum Is Merle's Insistence In Providing Narration Between The Songs In An Attempt To Tell The History Of Dixie Blues. He Should Have Known That The Music Itself Tells The Story Well Enough. - Stephen Thomas Erlewine, All Music Guide... more details
 
Haggard, Merle - A Portrait Of Merle Haggard A Portrait Of Merle Haggard
Country New - LP ST 319 Capitol
Sealed 1969 Stereo Original With The Rare, Bonus Scrapbook Sealed Under The Rear Shrink Wrap. Clean Cut Out Hole. “Anyone Who Doubts That Merle Haggard Was One Of The Very Finest Country Acts Of The 1960s Should Give A Listen To This Album, Which Captured Hag When His Gifts As A Singer And Songwriter Were At Their Peak — And Before The Success Of "Okie From Muskogee" Encouraged His Grandstanding Tendencies (And Got Him Unfairly Branded As A Reactionary). Three Of Haggard's Finest Songs Appear On This Set — "Silver Wings," "Hungry Eyes," And "Workin' Man's Blues" — And Most Country Artists Would Be Happy To Cut Three Tunes This Strong During The Course Of Their Career, Let Alone As Part Of One Of Six Albums Hag Would Release In 1969. While Those Three Songs Are Inarguably The Album's Highlight, The Rest Of The Set Is Strong As Well, Including A Terrific Cover Of The George Jones Classic "She Thinks I Still Care," The Tough Honky Tonk Weepers "Who Do I Know In Dallas" And " I Die Ten Thousand Times A Day," And The Brass-Infused "Montego Bay." The Production And Arrangements Are Admirably Low-Key And To The Point, And Haggard's Vocals Are Deeply Emotive Without Overplaying His Hand. Quite Simply, This Is As Good As Nashville Product Got In 1969, And A First-Rank Example Of What Merle Haggard Did So Well.” Mark Deming, AMG.... more details
