Hag/Let Me Tell You About A Song by Merle Haggard (1971 / 72)
These two LPs were originally released in 1971 (Hag) and 1972 (Let Me Tell You) on the Capitol record label. Now available for the first time as a 2 on 1 CD

Maverick country singer Merle Haggard represents an unusual intersection in American music, a crossroad where folk, pop, jazz and blues traditions are used to create his own soul-baring form of expression. With an impressive 39 #1 country hits, numerous awards (Grammy, CMA, ACM, and BMI have all acknowledged him), the 65 year old Haggard has always set his own trends: he's the only country performer ever featured on the cover of jazz bible Downbeat; the only California born singer in the Country Music Hall of Fame; and the only artist who's done stints both as an invited entertainer at the White House and in San Quentin's infamous solitary confinement 'hole' - clearly a powerful, creative force.
