5.0 out of 5 stars 1966-2005 Best of Merle Haggard Nov. 7 2010
Format:Audio CD
One of the great country artists of the 20th century. Merle had a clean sound and this album has it all. Some of these songs bring me back to a time when I was 10 years old it was an era when we had so many talented country artists. Merle was an up and commer with so much raw talent he was simply the best of his time.

5.0 out of 5 stars AN INTRODUCTION TO HAG'S MUSIC. Oct. 27 2010
By alain robert TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
By buying this,you don't have all the good songs that MERLE HAGGARD produced from 1966 to 2006,but if you never heard any songs by him, which was i confess my case,it is a perfect cd to discover one of country music's true living ambassador.Once you start listening to that collection,i guarantee that you will want to dig deeper into his discography.I am now almost ashamed to admit that i didn't know HAG.My only complain about the selection is the inclusion of duets which i am not to fond of,but this is a minor complain because his songs are so enjoyable and often autobiographical.I must say to conclude that the legend of MERLE HAGGARD is not exagerated,he is a truely great artist.I now can distinguish a MERLE song easily which means that i became a fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Single Disc Out There On This Artist Dec 22 2007
By JG - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I say artist since Merle is indeed an icon not some single/45 maker typically known to this genre of music but a serious artist that is best served up on individual albums showing his development or with the great box set "Down Every Road" that beautifully sums it all up and belongs in any serious CD collection.
The song selection here on HAG is a great mix and flows seamlesly and is enough to turn any rock fan into a country fan.
The sound is extraordinary as is the running time and liner notes and overall a great CD that included his famous duets with the great Johnny Cash(from the CASH CD Solitary Man),and the classic Willie Nelson cut Pancho and Lefty as well as a newer track with Toby Keith spanning a trip down memory lane circa 1962- 2005..Interesting photos of Merle standing over a grave site within as a middle age man with additional shots of him younger and the elder statesmen which he now is, akin to 2006 when this great CD hit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best introduction to a legendary artist. May 22 2007
By BillyG in Texas - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
If you were going to buy a best of to introduce someone to Merle Haggard, this is a good one. Plenty of classics here, But I kind of wish they included more of his MCA and Epic era hits.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the greatest country artists ever.... March 26 2007
By Grigory's Girl - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I really like old country music. It's much more sincere and real that the current garbage permeating the airwaves. Merle Haggard is a prime example of that old country music. He's one of the greatest songwriters to emerge from country music, and his songs are still valid today. Many people dismiss him as a right wing blowhard because of songs like Okie from Muskogee and The Right Side of Me. I actually like Okie, and its criticisms of hippie lifestyles is kind of funny and true, considering hippies were silly and naive. I used to dislike The Right Side of Me, but it's grown on me over the last year, and it's not as jingoistic as I thought. Even if you don't like these 2 songs because of their (possible) right wing bias, one shouldn't dismiss everything Merle has done over his career because of them. Merle is a true artist and a complicated man. The Grateful Dead have covered his songs (most notably Mama Tried, included here), so even the hippie Dead recognized that Merle is a great songwriter, and his political views (which are probably more complicated than most people think) shouldn't matter when it comes to his art. Personally, I think there's more wisdom in a 3 minute Haggard song (and a Cline and Wiliams one) than in all the political rants of lefties and righties combined. There was a recent article on Amazon's plog about how people in Seattle were rather rude to him when he was performing, showing that liberals can be closed minded as well. The biggest surprise here is the duet Merle does with Toby Keith, She Ain't Hooked on Me Anymore. It's a great song, co-written by Keith himself, and it makes me want to go out and buy some CD's of Toby's. This is a wonderful collection, featuring many of Merle's greatest, including Mama Tried, Okie from Muskogee, Hungry Eyes, and The Bottle Let Me Down. Haggard is still going strong today, and his music will go on forever....

5.0 out of 5 stars HAG ! Nov. 13 2009
By Midnight Rider - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is one of the best CD's of any genre music that I own. I'm not a big country fan but I have always liked Merle , Waylon Jennings , and Johnny Cash. This is as excellent a compilation of Merle's work that you will find. The recording is outstanding and there is not a bad selection on this long CD. I tell all the kids I teach who like contemporary country, which sounds like imitation Southern Rock to me , about this CD. I listen to this CD constantly and never get tired of it. This is what real country music is supposed to sound like.
