1-CD with 20-page booklet, 29 tracks. Playing time approx. 77 mns.
Merle Haggard's 1969 classic double LP played a pivotal role in bringing the music of Jimmie Rodgers to a new audience. In it, he was true to the spirit of Rodgers, but brought a new twist to the legacy. This CD not only includes all of the original two LPs, but two additional Rodgers songs that Merle recorded later. James Burton's dobro is stellar throughout. Titles include My Rough And Rowdy Ways, Waiting For A Train, Carolina Sunshine Girl, Mule Skinner Blues, Travelin' Blues, Frankie And Johnny and Gambling Polka Dot Blues. Essential!
