I like a bit of Merle, I like it even more when he does his bluegrass thing. So whilst clearing out our extensive back catalogue of emails I came across a plea to post someting about Merle's Bluegrass Sessions album. This hasn't been released in the UK (where we're based) so it rather fell off my radar, but a few listens to the tracks on repeat was all it took to realise it's a lonesome post.
Listen: Merle Haggard - Mama's hungry eyes
Listen: Merle Haggard - Wouldn't that be something
Buy it (on import still!)
