Born and raised in Bakersfield, Ca. The country music offshoot had a distinct rock 'n roll flavor and relied heavily on electric instrumentation, a far cry from the squeaky clean, string-laden country music of Nashville that was popular at the time. Haggard is also one of the most frequently cited "influences" for country artists today. There's little doubt that Haggard is an enduring country music legend. This album is a terrific slice of Haggard's earlier work.
Production was difficult at first, but Haggard hit a creative streak and ended up penning 10 of the album's 12 tracks. Always Wanting You. Movin' On. It's All In The Movies. The Roots Of My Raising.
