This value-added twofer combines two classic 1960s Merle Haggard albums. Until the late 1980s, the country music industry was entirely oriented toward singles, and many artists exerted minimal effort to release quality albums--Merle Haggard being one of the exceptions. Among the non-single tracks on SING ME BACK HOME are such great originals as "Wine Take Me Away," "I'll Leave the Bottle on The Bar," and "Look Over Me." Haggard has never denied his debt to earlier country greats, and here he tips his hat to one of his favorites, Lefty Frizzell, with a fine cover version of "Mom and Dad Waltz." THE LEGEND OF BONNIE AND CLYDE also combines Haggard originals with other writers' material, notably Dallas Frazier's beautiful "Love Has a Mind of Its Own." Haggard's own "Today I Started Loving You Again," written with his wife, Bonnie Owens, is a country masterpiece that was originally the B-side of the album's hit title track.
