I wasn't even in the mood for Merle Haggard when I started meandering, but I ran across a live set from 1981 at A Truer Sound, and figured it wouldn't be there forever, so this would be as good a time as any to acknowledge someone I consider to have few peers. A good many of you know his music far better than I, so I won't even attempt a bio. This is just to hip you to the live set; and I threw in a few other individual songs just to round shit out.
(For the ladies.)
