Merle is one of the most genuine voices in American music history. His struggle is well documented........the first time I heard "Mama Tried", it sent shivers down my spine. I LOVE the way he thought the Flying Burrito Brothers (well documented!) were a bunch of fruits. Best song: Rainbow Stew; it brought it all back....the ghost of Hank, Jimmy Rodgers-and Ernest Tubb. Oh yeah, also Faron Young, and most importantly-The GREAT swingin' Bob Wills.
