By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 10 Sept. 2014
Format: Audio CD
The first album here, simply titled Hag, contains four big country hits (Soldier's last letter, Jesus take a hold, Sidewalks of Chicago, I can't be myself) and plenty of other strong songs including No reason to quit, Shelly's winter love, The farmer's daughter and I've done it all.

The second album here includes the #1 country hits Daddy Frank and Grandma Harp. I was intrigued to learn that Merle wrote the purely fictional Daddy Frank after seeing the Maddox Brothers and Rose in action. Again, there are plenty of great tracks among the other tracks, any of which might have been considered for single release, though the two chosen were the most obvious. This album contains some comments about the songs at the beginning of each track, hence the album title. In other circumstances, these could be a distraction and / or irritation, but they work well here.

Great stuff.

HASH(0x8e8551b0) out of 5 stars 2 great albums from the 70's 9 Sept. 2003
By Darrin Warren - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have played both of these albums over and over again. So it's a nice surprise to see 2 great records on one disc. 1971 saw the release of "Hag" which featured 4 hits with no filler what so ever. My favorite song from the album is "Shelly's Winter Love". "Let me tell you about a song" from 1972 combines great stories and song. This album has many autobiographical elements in it from Merle. This is a must have for every Hag fan!!!!
HASH(0x8e84d54c) out of 5 stars HAGGARD ALWAYS THE BEST 28 Jun. 2014

Merle has a release of two albums from the 1970's HAG and LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT A SONG , in their day these two albums
were million sellers and compared to today's country, are still winners. There is nothing being released today would come within a mile of this double album set. I would say , to you if you do not own this double album, do yourself a favour and buy it. I rate it 10/10
a real winner.
HASH(0x9175c648) out of 5 stars 1970s Merle .. 8 Dec. 2011
By timmyd1970 - Published on Amazon.com

These 2 albums represented here are interesting , because they really show an emotional side of Merle Haggard in the early '70s . " Soldier's Last Letter " , " Shelley's Winter Love " ( my favorite ) , " the religious song " Jesus , Take A Hold " , " The Farmer's Daughter " ( not the same song as the Beach Boys from '63 ) . This album , ' Hag ' , was truly something that Merle had thought out emotionally and I love it !

Then we have " Let Me Tell You About a Song " , from '72. This is an interesting album because it did contain some hits " Daddy Frank " , " They're Tearin' Down the Labor Camps " , " Turnin' Off A Memory " . The most emotional song on this album , " The Funeral " , would've fit perfectly on the earlier release " Hag " and it makes me cry everytime I listen to it ! These 2 lps together are a great listening if you're wanting to hear Merle in his mid 30s singing about what's inside of him @ the time and I HIGHLY recommend this ! It's too bad that he didn't perform alot of these songs during the 70s up to now . I think Hag should go back and pull some of these for use in his tour instead of giving us the same songs such as " I Think I'll Just Stay Here And Drink " or " Ida Red " . ( no offense ) but these 70s songs of his were the best of the best !!

HASH(0x8f1e37d4) out of 5 stars Classic Haggard 24 Aug. 2006
By Jess - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This CD contains the recordings of two of Merle's earlier Albums. These are superb albums, and pre-date the tired sound that seem to be present in later Haggard recordings. A lot of good music here. The last album present on the CD contains a selection of numbers that Merle has chosen. They are prefaced by a short verbal intro by Merle himself, giving a little background on each song. It's a fine look into the stylings and influences of Haggard. The recording and mixing of this CD are excellent; it is a very enjoyable collection that will remain in your rotation. B+
