AllMusic Review by

Containing re-recorded versions of some of Merle Haggard's best-known songs, BEST OF THE BEST features the country legend and his band performing classics like the redneck anthem "Okie From Muskogee," his archetypal drinking song "Swinging Doors," and the sentimental prison ballad "Sing Me Back Home." Haggard's mature-sounding vocals and stellar instrumental performances by his sidemen lift this best-of out of the ordinary.
