HILLBILLYS IN A HAUNTED HOUSE - Merle Haggard - "Someone Told My Story" (1967)
It would be Saturday right about now, and it seems like a pretty good time to kick some scheiss around, and who would be better than anyone to do that than the one & only, and still kicking, Mr. Merle Haggard. Now this here movie, "Hillbillys In A Haunted House" catches a lot of flack for being a puffball piece of garbage and a waste of the talents of Mr. Carradine, Chaney and Rathbone, but where else can you get a vintage video of Merle Haggard in glorious living colour? Come on, it's a fair trade-off, Merle was pretty young and the other guys were ready to retire, enjoy it for what it's worth! And for all you people who have never figured it out, "Okie From Muskogee" was a song Merle wrote for his Dad, it wasn't His take on life! Merle is the real Boss, not Bruce! Amen!
