Merle Haggard's Finest Hour
Reviewed in the United States on July 21, 2008
The best of compilation from the one and only Merle Haggard, great material, "Silver Wings", "The Fightin' Side Of Me", "Workin' Man Blues", "Today I Started Loving You Again", "Daddy Frank(The Guitarman)", "Hungry Eyes". These are the Haggard recordings you'll wear out time after time, play after play, songs brilliantly written, songs that hit the soul way down deep inside, from a man who has tasted the bitter and the sweet from the ever changing seasons of life, Merle Haggard can sing a song like no other with a voice that is simply golden, and with the Strangers "the hag" could never go wrong. There are more Merle Haggard "best of" recordings out there, this one always stood out for me, one of the finer country music compilations.
