This early-1980s live concert recording features Merle Haggard on his home turf in Southern California, performing a variety of favorites, including his classic drinking songs "Misery and Gin," "I Think I'll Just Stay Here and Drink," and "Back to the Barrooms Again." There's also a Haggard fiddle solo, as well as a nod to his musical roots in Jimmie Rodgers' "Blue Yodel #9," and to his time in San Quentin in the sentimental prison ballad "Sing Me Back Home."
