Merle Haggard - Someday We'll Look Back/I Love Dixie Blues...So I Recorded Live in New Orelans (2004
When Someday We'll Look Back was first issued in 1971,it was reviewed in Rolling Stone,and it received a favourable review as well.The reviewer also drew attention to the length of the Hags sideburns.That's the way it was in '71.Now,some 35 years on,we can see just how good an album it was,and just how well Merle Haggard had absorbed the best of country music.
Hag not only recorded his own songs he picked other writers contributions and brought them in to the attention of us all.Here we have Roger Millers Train of Life,a sad wistful song,Dallas Fraziers California Cottonfields, an angry commentarymore… on the exploitation of migrant labour,"broken men with broken dreams",a great Tommy Collins song,Carolyn,as fine a love song as you could wish to hear.
Of course,he also sings his own and Tulare Dust is a classic,reminding us of his roots.Merle Haggard was also capable of turning an ordinary song into something special,and I'd Rather Be Gone, a hit for Hank Williams Jnr,is sung beautifully with Bonnie Owens harmonising.
Live in New Orleans is a pleasant confection,interesting,joyful and nice to have.We even get a live Carolyn.
But,the one you want is Someday We'll Look Back.Utterly brilliant,it was Haggard towards the end of his Capitol days,eschewing hits for songs with meaning and purpose.
Add this to your collection and say a private thank you to a great performer.
