The Hag dropped I'm a Lonesome Fugitive in 1967 -- that's important! Because not only is it a stellar collection of Bakersfield honky tonk, but it also presages West Coast country-rock. Sure, the Byrds would cover "Life in Prison" the following year, but check out the rest of this classic LP: stripping away Nashville's saccharine productions, Haggard's wide-open sound perfectly matches rural California's sweeping vistas. And those anti-establishment hippies knew it. Plus, they dug his fugitive image.
