I sat in my cousins bedroom while he was at school (his spring break was different than mine) and listened to this album and Green River by Creedence Clearwater Revival nonstop back in the day and not surprisingly they are both still 2 of my top 10 albums ever! I could not stop listening to Mama Tried. The song relates to how my parents generation lived growing up Dust Bowl era and settling in the Central Valley of California from a bad boy point of view and I wanted to be THAT bad boy I guess. Merle owns on this disc, it is the Bakersfield Sound and it is real country. Fine lyrics and unmatched band propel this into legendary status imho.
