This is one of the all-time best recording of country music, particularly of Merle Haggard.
I highly recommend and continuously enjoy this recording.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't believe the product description 30 Mar 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Two separate CDs of the original classic live albums - "Okie From Muskogee" (1969) and Fightin' Side Of Me" (1970) for the 45th Anniversary of the former title.

Contrary to the product description the latter title HAS been re-issued on CD - first time by Disky (EMI Holland) in 1995 and more recently by BGO (UK) from 2004. The American record industry (not the focused fans and collectors) tend not to recognise albums re-issued outside the USA. I wonder how many Hag fans know that his first Capitol title to be re-released on CD was "Same Train, A Different time" from Japan in 1990 ?

Anyway, both releases are the so called two-fer CDs - two albums on one CD.

Disky paired "Okie From Muskogee" and "Fightin Side Of Me" on one CD and gave it the title of "The Hit Albums" - be aware that the song "Okie From Muskogee" was on both the original live albums, so Disky omitted it from the 1970 running order so as to avoid needless duplication, otherwise "The Hit Albums" is the complete repertoire of both titles.

the BGO CD is a pairing of "Fightin' Side Of Me" and Merle's only duet from his Capitol period - "Just Between The Two Of Us" with Bonnie Owens, first released in 1965. An odd choice which I reviewed elsewhere.

However this 45th Anniversary re-issue is the first time that the 1970 album has had a single stand alone CD re-release, unlike the 1969 title which was previously re-issued digitally remastered on CD by Capitol (US) as part of their Cornerstone series in 2001.

I'm told the quality of this 2014 re-release is excellent, the best yet.

4.0 out of 5 stars Merle goes back to his roots 7 Jan 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Although I've been interested in country for many years this is actually the first Merle Haggard album I've listened to, and it's a pleasant surprise. Recorded live before a very enthusiastic audience in Muskogee, Oklahoma (where members of Merle's family originated from) the songs run the whole gamut from humour, through pathos and difficulties to songs that return to his origins and express some of his beliefs.

The remastered recording from 1969 are excellent, so if you enjoy a good concert of country music and you want to hear the essence of Merle Haggard, do yourself a favour and buy this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars in my humble opinion a classic 25 May 2011
By cordy
Format:Audio CD
I first heard this on LP in 1973,my then girlfriend and i used to babysit for a cousin of mine who owned it.My girl and i played it constantly and we were both 17 at the time and as well as Slade,Rod Stewart,this LP became a firm favourite.That girl and i eventually married and as soon as we could we bought this album at that time it had to be ordered from USA through a record shop.This is my second cd i gave the first to my son who also grew up hearing and loving it,if you own no music of Merle Haggard try this and i challenge you not to end up adoring it from the haunting Hobo bill,to the emotional Silver wings the album takes you through a reflection in part to Merles own life with the problems he had with alcohol,prison etc,take a chance buy and enjoy i dont think you will regret it.
