Synopsis

Amazon.com
Hag went into the studio in October 1994 to rerecord his Capitol classics of the 1960s and early 1970s. Thirteen of these 16 cuts come from that session--perfectly fine versions, but not the original versions--while three early-1980s Epic recordings round out the collection. Still, fans who want to hear the Capitol chestnuts in their original form should strongly consider the outstanding two-CD Lonesome Fugitive: The Merle Haggard Anthology. --Marc Greilsamer

CD Reviews

Outstanding sampling of Merle's long string of chart toppers

"This is vintage Merle Haggard at his best with a very wide selection of his singing and writing work covering the period from 1966 thru 1971 and on to 1981. These are all studio recordings with great instrument acoustics with very good voice to instrument balance levels."
I shoulda consulted with Amazon!!

"I picked up this CD in a store and when I got it home, realized that instead of the original versions of his hits, we have re-hashed re-recordings from 1994! What a let down! I was expecting the old classics recorded with the Strangers! Shame on Sony Music for not labeling this collection on it's outer package for what it is. Thank you Amazon for honestly describing the contents on your website!Anyone want a slightly-used Merle Haggard CD??"
Great music, unfortunately all re-recordings.

"I've been a Merle Haggard fan all my life and this CD is about as great as he gets. But, if you want the original recordings of these hits, look elsewhere."
