  • Haggard Merle And The Strangers - A Portrait Of Merle Haggard / Keep Movin’ On (CD)

    18,00

    Brilliant twofer with strong Dolly connection

    Keep moving on (the second album here) was the album that really made me take Merle’s music seriously. More than any other album of his that I’d bought up till then, it showed me that he was much more than a singles artist. Of course, it didn’t do any harm that the album has a strong Dolly Parton connection (via several songs) but every song here is a real classic.

    The three big hits on Keep moving on are Moving on (an excellent trucking song), Kentucky gambler (written by Dolly) and Always wanting you (written by Merle about Dolly). All three of these songs went to number one on the country charts. Of the other songs, my favorite is the touching ballad, You’ll always be special to me. Written by Merle, Dolly covered the song and included it on her album, Bargain store. The Dolly connection on this album is completed by Life’s like poetry, which Merle co-wrote with Dolly, Dolly’s own version later appeared on her album, All I can do.

    Merle complains wryly about women in A man’s got to give up a lot, though he must think the sacrifice worthwhile as he sings I’ve got a darling for a wife and These memories we’re making tonight – two other fine songs. .Two other excellent songs (September in Miami, Here in Frisco) compete an excellent album. I’m not sure if Keep moving on is still my absolute favorite original album by Merle but it’ll always be special to me. Portrait (the first album here) may not be quite as strong overall as Keep moving on, but it includes several classics including Working man blues, Silver wings and Hungry eyes. There are several other fine songs including What’s wrong with staying home, I die ten thousand times a day and Every fool has a rainbow. At the very least, it is a worthy companion to Keep moving on. If you want to explore Merle’s music beyond the hits, you will find much of interest here.

  • Haggard Merle And The Strangers - The Legend of Bonnie & Clyde / Pride In What I Am (CD)

    18,00

    Classic albums from 1968 and 1969.

    The title track of the Bonnie and Clyde album was one of several songs about the legendary outlaws, as Georgie Fame in Britain and Serge Gainsbourg in France were also successful with different songs about them. With Glen Campbell on banjo and harmony vocals, Merle’s record became a number one country hit. However, the record label made a huge mistake in selecting as the B-side another song on the album, Today I started loving you again. As listed on the original album, the Today is missing from the title, but most of the 100+ covers of the song make it the first word of the title, as do most Merle Haggard compilations on which it appears. Had it been released as a single in its own right, it might well have been another number one hit for Merle. Sammi Smith eventually had a top ten country hit in the seventies with her cover of the song.

    Among the other songs on the Bonnie and Clyde album is a cover of You’ve still got a place in my heart, which has also been recorded by Glen Campbell, George Jones, Dean Martin and Dottie West among others. A trio of Dallas Frazier songs (Love has a mind of its own, The train never stops at our town, Will you visit me on Sundays?) are among the other highlights on this excellent album.

    The title track of the second album here didn’t make number one on the country charts although it came close, peaking at number three. It nevertheless is among Merle’s most recognized songs, ahead of some of his number one hits. Merle wrote six of the songs for this album including the title track, although he included covers of California blues (Jimmie Rodgers) and It meant goodbye to me when you said hello to him (Lefty Frizzell).

    These two high-quality albums are typical of Merle’s music, and will give much pleasure to all fans of traditional country music.
