Album Review

As the title implies, His Epic Hits: First Eleven covers the first 11 hits Merle Haggard had on Epic Records, including "Are the Good Times Really Over (I Wish A Buck Was Still Silver)," "Pancho & Lefty," "Reasons to Quit," "That's the Way Love Goes," "My Favorite Memory," "What Am I Gonna Do (With the Rest of My LIfe)," and "You Take Me for Granted." Since most of his early Epic albums were uneven, His Epic Hits is especially useful, gathering his best material onto one disc. It should be supplemented by Greatest Hits of the '80s, which covers his mid-'80s hits for Epic, as well as a few fine cuts that didn't make this collection.
