Merle Haggard Mama Tried on 180g Vinyl LP
The Latest Releases from the Capitol Vaults: Historic Titles Presented on 180g Audiophile Vinyl for Premium Sound!
One of Merle Haggard's finest recordings, 1968's Mama Tried is comprised of a number of strong originals and several excellent covers. While "Mama Tried," "I'll Always Know" and "You'll Never Love Me Now" all happen to be some of Haggard's most solid original offerings, it's his gritty and honest interpretations of songs like "Little Ole Wine Drinker Me," "In the Good Old Days (When Times Were Bad)," "Teach Me to Forget," "Run 'Em Off" and "Too Many Bridges to Cross Over" that help distinguish Mama Tried as perhaps the most quintessential "Bakersfield-Sound" album ever recorded.
