I've had this album on LP, Cassette, and now CD. One of my favorite albums and probably the best BASIC Merle collection on the market. Too many of the Merle Collections out there are re-recordings of a tired and burnt-out Haggard that leave the listener disappointed.....this one is not one of those. Get it while you can; a fine sampling of a legend in his heyday. A+

We've owned "The best of the best" in all 4 formats. If you love Mr. Haggard, this album is a must have. My family has never been on a road trip without it. Growing up, I listened to the record all of the time. Nowadays, I don't listen to country at all- but I'll always listen to Merle!

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.

Certainly a good record and a must have for any serious Merle Haggard fan! Nicely done and brings my father back to when he used to see him on the television set.

I first heard this on LP, then on cassette tape. I was very glad to have it on CD. A fine CD to add to your vintage country collection.

My husband loves Merle and claims this to be his BEST CD! The music is very classic country. Merle sounds crisp and clear in this CD!

This is "The Best Of The Best of Merle Haggard" albums.It was released in 1972 by Capital Records (ST-11082).It is a Stereo Vinyl LP and has excellent sound quality.Merle was born in Oildale,California on Apr 6,1937.He started his career in 1963 at the age of 26 and is still performing at the age of 78.When this album was released Merle was only 35;so one must remember that these were his "Best Of" early in his career.If you have been a lover of the Hag's music ,you will know how his voice has changed over the years,;but this album cathes his more youthful voice.It's unbelievable that so many of Merle's songs have been around so long and remain some of the most requested after so mamy years.
As a testimant to how good this Vinyl is,it was re-released as a MP3 in 1991.
For a sampling of the tracks check out the MP3.
