Recorded in the frenzied wake of the biggest hit of Haggard's career, this live 1969 performance (in Muskogee, OK) is a joy to listen to.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST LIVE COUNTRY ALBUM EVER MADE March 5, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is the definitive textbook on how country music ..real country music..should be remembered. Unlike today's mindless, fabrictaed country pop fluff and artists who can't sing on pitch when they perform live, Hag and the Strangers show that talent and a few Tele's and Twins can still rise above pitch correctors and lip syncing.

The tone on Roy Nichol's tele and the perfectly flawless singing by Hag and Bonnie Owens still leave me with my mouth open.

Recorded in a school gym somewhere in Oklahoma with bare bones PA and no frills, this live album set the standard for me and alot of my contemporaries.

This is the holy Grail of cant afford to NOT own this recording.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Real Deal October 25, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Here it is, the real deal -- Merle Haggard's classic live album from 1969, re-released in digital splendor. This is mighty Merle at his best, loose on-stage and in fine voice. This CD includes the best of his many versions of Okie from Muskogee, as well as a rollicking take on Mama Tried and Working Man Blues. The CD is true to its vinyl predecessor, including cuts originally intended to showcase Hag's band, as well as a cut by a since-forgotten Bakersfield vocalist, Gene Price.
It's too bad Capitol couldn't have been a little more creative with the re-release of this album, which has been out of circulation for a couple of decades. Generally, such repackagings include unreleased cuts, but nothing is added here. On the other hand, the bargain-basement price can't be beaten. There are also no new liner notes (although almost all the original packaging is here) and for some reason Ken Nelson's producer credit has been omitted (although the remaster producer's name is listed). These are minor quibbles that don't detract from the joy of having one of the finest and most influential albums in the history of country music available again.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Ones A No Brainer December 17, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I was fortunate enough to have caught Merle and The Strangers in 1970 at Madison Square Garden, just a few months after this brillant concert. Merle is on my short list of legends I was lucky enough to have seen in their prime. The others are Bob Marley and Van Morrison. My recollections of the MSG show are very similar to the Muskogge concert heard here. The Strangers and Merle sound like a fine tuned turbo-charged V8 and the song selection works absolutely perfect. Kudos to Capital for rereleasing this vintage performance. Kick back and enjoy. This is a NO-BRAINER!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars the Premiere country gentleman outlaw February 26, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Merle Hagard has long been to me the quenticential country singer.His style of singing has an almost spiritual value, it clearly shows its gospel roots. Listening to many of these songs as a child, I can still remember many of the words to his truly timeless songs. His music takes me back to better days.This music means more today thhen when it first came out.

5.0 out of 5 stars A True Legend! December 23, 2005
Format:Audio CD
One of country music's most beloved performers is Merle Haggard. Merle is one of best from the classic years of country music that didn't have a famous relative to pave his way to stardom. Or be one of the pretty boys of today that have to rely on their looks not their voices.

This Cd is a snapshot of country's most popular performer at his best. The song Okie From Muskogee stayed at #1 for 4 impressive weeks and won single of the year. Other notable hits included Mama Tried, Silver Wings and a medley of his others timeless classics. An instrumental from his band The Strangers called Blue Rock. Billy Over Came His Size was written by Merle for this recording as he was heading to Muskogee. And as he quotes in the CD,"I had a little help writting this tune, with Jim Beam". Hobo Bill's Last Ride is a sad tale of a man that was down on his luck and depended on the rails as a means of travel. With no family or friends to surround him. Hobo Bill's dynasty came to a tragic end. Other notable titles include White Line Fever, Workin' Man Blues and If I Had Left it Up To You. Closing out the CD with The Okie From Muskogee. One of the most honest hard working artist of our time. Merle Haggard deserves a Lifetime Award.

4.0 out of 5 stars only one better than this March 9, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is Merle Haggard at his live best--not the shot performer we occasionally hear now and cringe. He only did one better live album, and I fear it's out of print. It's the one he made in Philadelphia, with 'Harold's Super Service," on it, along with him singing impressions of Buck Owens, Marty Robins, even JOhnny Cash. Until that one is re-issued, if it ever is, this one will have to do--and it's a good piece of work.. "Sing me Back Home," Branded Man," "Mama Tried, Etc., certainly weren't on the Philadelphia album, released around 1970 or so. "in the Arms of Love," is terrific--not sung by Merle but one of his boys who never amounted to anything, sadly. I love "Billy Overcame his Size," because I've always been the one overcoming stuff--blindness, asthma, small size, etc., and trying to make a living of it. this is the one Haggard album I'd buy if I could only buy one.

Format:Audio CD
The label Capitol Nashville (Universal) has re-re-released Okie From Muskogee as a 2 CD edition. The first disc is "Okie From Muskogee." The second disc is the live Merle Haggard album entitled 'The Fighting Side of Me.' Both albums were previously released together on CD on the Disky label. 'The Fighting Side Of Me" was also released by BGO records on a two-fer CD, entitled "Just Between the Two of Us / Fightin Side of Me."

The misinformed editorial review is embarrassing to Merle Haggard fans. It states "The live 'Okie from Muskogee' album was originally released in 1969 as an attack on the liberal hippies who represented American pop culture in the late '60s and the title song struck a chord in audiences across the country."

Whoever wrote this editorial review needs to make some corrections. Merle Haggard didn't write 'Okie From Muskogee' as an attack on the hippies. Instead, it was Merle's humorous response to the bickering between the hippies and squares. Merle was observing the situation from his own perspective, as a third party.

Next, the editorial review states "Merle Haggard then released another live album called 'The Fightin' Side of Me' at the beginning of 1970, and it also shot to number one. This album went out of print around 1974 and has remained so until today. This is the first time audiences will be able to own a digital/CD version of 'The Fighting Side of Me' live album."

Once again, the editorial review is filled with blatant lies. Both of these albums have been re-issued multiple times and on CD on different labels.
