Same Train, Different Time is Merle Haggard's affectionate tribute to Jimmie Rodgers. Haggard provides narration between the songs, offering tales of Rodgers' life and music. While the album is rooted in the past, the key to its success is how Haggard updates these traditional songs without losing sight of their roots. There are contemporary folk, country and blues influences scattered throughout the record, adding depth to the music and proving that Rodgers' music is indeed timeless. © Stephen Thomas Erlewine /TiVo

Usually, Merle Haggard's musical eclecticism is a virtue, but on If We Make It Through December, it hurts the overall impact of the album. Many of the individual tracks--particularly the gentle, yearning title track and good versions of Lefty Frizzell's "I'm An Old, Old Man (Tryin' To Live While I Can)" and the country standard "To Each His Own"--work well on their own, but often the straight-up country, western swing, Dixieland experiements and pop-tinged ballads seem at odds with each other. As a result, the LP never quite gels, yet there are enough fine moments to make it a worthwhile purchase. © Stephen Thomas Erlewine /TiVo

Country - Erschienen am 1. Januar 1970 | Capitol Nashville

After releasing his tribute to Jimmie Rodgers, Merle Haggard immediately set about working on a tribute to his other major musical idol, Bob Wills. Haggard learned how to play fiddle and, within a month, he recruited many of the original Playboys to augment the Strangers and began recording the album that became A Tribute to the Best Damn Fiddle Player (Or My Salute to Bob Wills). Where Same Train, Different Time was a measured, heartfelt tribute, Best Damn Fiddle Player is a ragged, enthusiastic good time. Haggard, the Strangers, and the Playboys play their hearts out, breathing life into Wills warhorses like "Right or Wrong," "Stay a Little Longer," "Time Changes Everything," and "San Antonio Rose," while bringing attention to lesser-known songs like "Brain Cloudy Blues," "I Knew the Moment I Lost You," and "Old-Fashioned Love." The fact that Western swing re-established itself as a viable country genre after the release of A Tribute to the Best Damn Fiddle Player is a testament to the power and charm of this record. © Stephen Thomas Erlewine /TiVo

The Roots of My Raising is Merle Haggard's final recording for Capitol. Like its predecessor, My Love Affair With Trains, it features only one of his originals. But it's difficult to say whether Haggard was saving his own songs for his new deal with MCA or had specifics in mind when he made these albums. It was a hell of a way to go out though: The album garnered two number one singles (Hag's 23rd and 24th) in the title track written by the great Tommy Collins and Cindy Walker's "Cherokee Maiden," which Bob Wills hit with in 1941. The most interesting thing about these songs as hit singles is how far outside the mainstream of country music they were. The music was becoming slicker and more urban for the first time in a decade, and urban cowboy was just around the corner. One of Haggard's most overlooked gems is here, though it was never issued as a single. "What Have You Got Planned Tonight, Diana?" is a deeply moving love song from the bed of a dying man. There's also Haggard's definitive version -- he recorded it three different times -- of Lefty Frizzell's hit "I Never Go Around Mirrors" and his own lovely and poignant "Am I Standing in Your Way." The Strangers remained the most rock-solid of country bands, able to slide from honky tonk to near-bluegrass stomp to Jimmie Rodgers-style blues ("Gamblin' Polka Dot Blues" and "Delta Blues") to Western swing with a horn section on "Cherokee Maiden." While The Roots of My Raising ended a 12-year relationship with Capitol, it was also the end of a particular stylistic direction for Haggard. The move to MCA would see an evolution in his sound and recording approach. © Thom Jurek /TiVo

While the title track is a gentle, affecting ballad, It's All in the Movies doesn't contain enough similarly engaging material to make the record successful. The album is at its best when Haggard delves into western swing, such as "Living with the Shades Pulled Down," or when he delivers straightforward ballads like "Nothin's Worse Than Losing" and "I Know An Ending When It Comes, " but too many of the songs on the LP are pleasant, but inconsequential, filler. © Stephen Thomas Erlewine /TiVo

Country - Erschienen am 1. Dezember 1972 | Capitol Nashville

Despite the presence of the excellent title track, It's Not Love (But It's Not Bad) is only a fitfully entertaining album, equally divided between the excellent and the mediocre. A few of the throwaways are entertaining, particularly the rolling "New York City Blues," but songs like "Dad's Old Fiddle" and "My Woman Keeps Lovin' Her Man" fail to make an impression. There are a handful of hidden gems ("I Wonder Where I'll Find You At Tonight, " "I Wonder What She'll Think About Me Leaving, " "Goodbye Comes Hard for Me"), but the record remains a frustrating listen. © Stephen Thomas Erlewine /TiVo

Country - Erschienen am 1. Januar 1971 | Capitol Nashville

Released in 1971, The Land of Many Churches is similar to other Merle Haggard tribute albums released in the same era, including Same Train, Different Time and I Love Dixie Blues. To his credit, Haggard had a greater need to shine light on the music that influenced him, more so than the need to release material that guaranteed a surefire hit. These 24 tracks include gospel chestnuts "Precious Memories," "Turn Your Radio On," "Amazing Grace," and a great version of the Hank Williams composition "I Saw the Light." Recorded live at the Nashville Union Rescue Mission and several rural churches across the country, Haggard is joined by guests Bonnie Owens and the Carter Family. Highly recommended to traditional country fans. © Al Campbell /TiVo
