Continuing with the subtle folk streak running beneath The Legend of Bonnie & Clyde and Mama Tried, Merle Haggard turned in one of his finest efforts to date in 1969's Pride in What I Am. While there are no flat-out classics outside of "I Take a Lot of Pride in What I Am" -- it's the only track on the album here that was a hit -- the album is certainly not lacking in strong material. In fact, it gains considerable strength from a diversity of material, where the rolling, folk-tinged sound epitomized by the title song is balanced by twangy, spare country and bits of hard honky tonk, blues, and cowboy, not to mention the slyly inventive arrangement on his version of Lefty Frizzell's "It Meant Goodbye to Me When You Said Hello to Him." There are also hints of the direction Hag would take in the near future, including a Jimmie Rodgers song (his tribute to the singing brakeman, Same Train, Different Time, would follow next), and the encroaching celebration of a time passed, though his cover of Red Simpson's "I Think We're Livin' in the Good Old Days." There is another Simpson cover in "Somewhere on Skid Row," but what fuels Pride in What I Am is a selection of graceful, low-key minor masterworks from Haggard himself, who explores gentler territory with "The Day the Rains Came" and "I Can't Hold Myself In Line," while kicking up the tempo with the delightful "I'm Bringin' Home Good News" and laying back with the steady-rolling "I Just Want to Look at You One More Time." None of these may be among his most celebrated songs, but they're all small gems that illustrate what a fine songwriter he is. They also help form the core of this subtly adventurous, rich album that may not be among his flashiest, but is another excellent record by one of the most reliable recording artists in country history.

Merle Haggard, le bad boy de la country

L’alcool, la prison, la drogue et la misère. Merle Haggard qui pratiqua les quatre passa sa vie à chanter l’Amérique des marginaux et des laissés-pour-compte. Instigateur du son de Bakersfield, il épurera la country music pour rendre son propos encore plus incisif.

Johnny Cash derrière les barreaux

Grâce à deux albums live entrés dans la légende, Johnny Cash a relancé sa carrière à la fin des 60’s, devenant une véritable superstar. Deux disques pas comme les autres car enregistrés en prison. Mais comment l’Homme en noir s’est-il retrouvé dans une salle de concert aussi inhabituelle ?

Ray Charles, styliste sous influence

Père fondateur de la soul dont la carrière a duré un demi-siècle, Ray Charles ne saurait se résumer à la poignée de tubes que tout le monde connaît. C’est surtout le maître du crossover musical, la variété haut de gamme qui fait du mélange des genres un art, en approche un pour mieux embrasser l’autre. Ray Charles a sécularisé le gospel, enrichi le blues, joué du jazz, chanté de la country et frôlé le rock’n’roll. Retour sur son style unique fondé sur les cinq qui précèdent.
