99. Merle Haggard - I'm a Lonesome Fugitive
Release Date: 1967
It's been a long time since a country album has cropped up on this list. Like Frank Sinatra before him, Merle Haggard was obviously ploughing his own musical furrow in 1967 whilst everybody else dropped acid. I listened to this album this morning, but although I enjoyed it, it hasn't really stayed with me throughout the rest of the day.
There's a book you may or may not have heard of called '1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die'. Here is my attempt to do just that. Follow my progress from Frank Sinatra to Arcade Fire as I write my thoughts and feelings about each album.
