DVD of Merle Haggard's very first Austin City Limits performance, recorded in January 1978. 12 different songs than previous Live from Austin, Texas release (recorded in 1985). Five #1 Country singles (The Fugitive Song, Sing Me Back Home, Cherokee Maiden, the Farmer's Daughter, and Workin' Man Blues). Features four classic Bob Wills (King of Western Swing) songs with Merle on fiddle. When he stepped onto the Austin City Limits stage for the very first time on that brisk January day in 1978, Merle Haggard was at the top of his game. It had been over a decade since his first national hit, 'Sing a Sad Song', and not that long after 'Okie from Muskogee' had firmly planted his music in to the world.
