5.0 out of 5 stars "Concepts" Box a Must-have for Haggard fans Sept. 12 2010
By Michael A. Sugarman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Even though they are all excellent, it still seems like every Bear Family set I purchase outdoes all the others. No one exceeds Bear Family for the overall care and devotion they offer to every set; to my ears at least, the re-mastering is always superb and better than other digital issues of the same material. And if you like Merle Haggard, this is some of his best material -- the Jimmie Rodgers and Bob Wills tributes, the live LP's, and the hard-to-find Land of Many Churches double LP set. This is all rounded off by several instrumental LP's by Merle's excellent band the Strangers. Speaking of the Strangers, Merle featured Roy Nichols on guitar and Norm Hamlet on steel for years -- if they had been free lancers out making their own names, we would be assigning them to the same categories of expertise as pickers like James Burton (also on this set quite a bit) and Speedy West. My point is that the instrumental albums are excellent as well. The hard cover book included has a lot of informative text and some great photos (where does Bear Family come up with all these old pictures?). Maybe we take Merle Haggard for granted because he's been around for so long, written so many songs, issued so many LP's and CD's, played thousands of concerts, but make no mistake; as a singer/songwriter he is almost peerless and part of a very elite group with Hank Williams and Gordon Lightfoot and few others. I've seen him in concert a few times and I don't think the man has ever sung a bad or false note in his entire career. Any Bear Family set is more than worth the investment, but especially so in the case of Merle Haggard, who is one of the best ever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worship at the alter of Merle Haggard! Dec 7 2007
By Robert Lett - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The first Bear Family box on Haggard was many years ago, so I was starting to think the second was never going to come. But wow was it worth the wait! Bear Family once again dazzles us with an exaustive, great sounding embarrassment of riches from Merle Haggard. Expensive but worth every penny and then some. Keep em coming Bear Family!

5.0 out of 5 stars merle haggard-the studio recordings Feb. 8 2008
By Sharon Filtness - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I am a passionate hag fan, I already own 50 cd's, but this is by far the best material I Have on Him. The cd cet is well presented and I can't say enough about the beautifully prepared book that comes in the set. Well done the Bear family for putting this together. I recommend this set to any Merle fan and to anyone who just likes their country music...Real country music......

5.0 out of 5 stars The set is complete Nov. 26 2010

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I purchased the Untamed Hawk box set when it came out then the Capitol Recordings box set now this one.I already have all of these songs minus the unreleased and Strangers stuff.I'm hoping the live in Philidelphia concert sounds better on this compilation than the re-release that BGO records turned out.They tried to make a live album sound like a studio album.It's very muffled.Anyway you can't go wrong with Merle and the Strangers.Just enjoy

5.0 out of 5 stars Super Hag July 17 2008
By Steven R Argast - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Hag At His Best between 1969-1976 on capital. A Six CD set (Don't be fooled when you open the box CD 5 and 6 are together in the last case). This includes a lot of great songs I had trouble finding including "Old Man From The Mountain, Movin' On, Jesus,Take A Hold,Cherokee Maiden, Here Comes The Freedom Train. It also includes a hard cover book which recounts the 8 year period. I may be Wrong but the first couple of CD's which were recorded at the capital studios seem to have slightly more ground hiss than the later ones (nothing that would deter me from recomending this though but it should be noted). I love Merle and if you've sought for more than the usual compilation look no further!
Heil Merle!
