    [QUOTE]Thompson had a pure country voice, no doubt. But I think Snow, Cash, Hank and this guy are are true country/western legends: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eFHJ41ktt3Q&feature=related
    Posted by harness[/QUOTE]I love me some merle. He and Buck Owens are who I was alluding when I mentioned the country music capitol of California. There seems to have been a lot of great country music that has come out of Bakersfield. We used to do a rock and roll version of this one of my bands.

    And thank you for pulling Are You sure Hank done it this way? I used to have an album, I think it was called Outlaw Country that had that track on it. I think Willie, Waylon, Lisa Coulter and maybe David Allen Coe were on it.

    With all due respect, I wouldn't put Buck Owens in or near Haggard's class.
    However, I'll test UR Californis rock roots...

    Always loved Baker Street. You have to admit that this is a great country song though.

    Yes, it is a very good country song. Owens chose his songs wisely. He had to, because he had extremely limited singing range. Guys like him and Porter Wagoner definitely went far given their limited gifts.

    Carnie! I found the mystery singer! This is the guy I couldn't remember:

    Hal Ketchum, my mom loves this guy. That's usually a good sign because she has excellent taste in music. Maybe I just love Buck because he was from Bakersfield and Bakersfield has always been an underrated hotbed of country music. Back to your post about California rock, I've always thought of CA rock as being epitomized by the fusion of country, rock and roll and jazz that was going on in the 70s. Skunk Baxter is an excellent example of the approach IMO.

    Re: So Long, Manny Ram

    Getting back to Hal Ketchum for a moment, I thought his voice rose above the nasal sound of the last 20+ years. That particular song really impressed me - it's innovative licks and lyrics, considering it's genre.

    I identify California rock with the Beach Boys, who I can live without. You are more aware of the rock/country fusion there than I am.

    BTW: They actually play some of Steely Dan's stuff on the jazz stations!

    Haggard lived a life you could appreciate. He rode freights as a kid. You can hear it in his music: He's the real article. I read his Bio. Really interesting. 
    I believe he was on death row. His life story would make for an interesting flic.

    I wonder if Manny Ram would be interested in playing Merle. If so, this thread will have come full circle!

    Hey harness, have you ever listened to the Texas Tornadoes?

    No. But now I'm hungry for some Cajun food.
    Have you ever heard of the hoosier hurricane?

    Charlie Daniels is from Indiana? Who woulda thunk it? I actually found out about the Tornadoes because I'm a huge Freddy Fender fan. Million Mile Reflections was always one of my favorite albums. Remember this one?

    And a little Freddy Fender because every night goes better with a little Freddy.

    C. Daniels probably isn't from Indiana, but Hoosier hurricane sounded rather poetic:)

    Glad he's still alive and kickin'. A super talent. Here's another country-rock (crock?) group that I enjoyed.

    Here's a clip with C. Daniels playing fiddle with the MTB. Kind of interesting that both Toy Caldwell and Freddy Fender played the guitar with their thumbs.
