In 2002, BGO released Merle Haggard's 1971 album Hag and 1972 effort Let Me Tell You About a Song on a single CD. These two albums were separated by two other records: Land of Many Churches and Someday We'll Look Back, both from 1971. If Someday We'll Look Back would have fit better with Hag on a two-fer since it shares a similar sound and sentiment, it's still hard to complain about this disc, since neither album has been released on CD before and they're both among Haggard's best. Which, of course, means this is a necessary purchase for any serious fan of either Hag or country music.
