I've been looking for this album on CD for at least 15 years. Why? Because it's Merle Haggard's best ever album, and the best country album of the 1980s. It's an absolute classic by a musical genius at the top of his game. "Make up and Faded Blue Jeans" and Merle's remake of Hank Jr.'s "I Don't Have Any More Love Songs" are worth the cost of the CD by themselves. HIGHEST recommendation.

This is probably the best Merle Haggard release ever. If there were two country albums I would recommend it would be this one and Haggard's "Serving 190 Proof." They are Haggard at his finest.

There is not an average cut on this album. They are all superb. For the price, you can't go wrong.

This is the definitive merle Haggard album. Merle recorded this album in 1980 with MCA records and in fact the very first song "Misery and Gin" was in the motion picture "Bronco Billy" starring Clint Eastwood. It would be impossible to say which is my favorite song on this album because each one is a favorite to me, there is not a bad song on the disc at all. Merle Haggard is a class act and his music is some of the best in country music even today. If your a Merle Haggard fan and you don't have this album, I highly recomend you pick it up. Merle has other great albums as well but it is hard pressed to beat "Back to the barrooms". I also recomend his albums "The way I am" and "Going where the lonely go" but "Back to the Barrooms" is still the best. Hurry up!!! Amazon.com, get "Back to the Barrooms" on here for sale so the rest of the world can enjoy this musical legend like I enjoy him.

One of the finest stand alone country albums I've ever heard. Bookended by "Misery and Gin" and "I Think I'll Just Stay Here And Drink", each song is a little slice of life. Excellent cover of Hank Williams Jr's "I Don't Have Any More Love Songs".

"Makeup And Faded Blue Jeans" is as real a song as you're ever going to hear.

A great album from one of the giants of REAL country music. Get this today. They don't make music like this in Nashville anymore.

I purchased this along with Serving 190 Proof. Both are quintessential Merle Haggard at his best. Released back to back in 79 and 80 with this being the stronger of the two but solid songwriting and exceptional singing on both.

I am not a dedicated country western fan, but this album by Haggart is one of the best I have ever heard. His voice was in top-notch form when he cut this one. Well worth the money!

It's Haggard. How can you go wrong? I know some of Merle's music has been varied in acceptance, but he's had more hits by far, than the few that weren't.

My husband and I have always considered this album of Merle's to be his greatest. We're happy to have it in CD form for listening to while traveling.
