      Buck Owens’ legendary live albums from Carnegie Hall, Japan and London were landmark efforts that captured Buck and the Buckaroos at their peak, but he also recorded other live albums overseas. The most obscure of Buck’s live releases was his April 1970 show in Oslo, Norway that featured Don Rich with the Buckaroos, Buck’s son Buddy Alan and the Hagers. Fiery and intense, it reflects that unique early ’70s period when Buck was experimenting and broadening his sound beyond his old style. With...

                        Buck Owens was the original, border-bustin’ ambassador of American country music. Beginning with his acclaimed live stint at Carnegie Hall, to Japan where the crowd’s overwhelming enthusiasm was downright staggering, Buck would continue to herd his posse into venues worldwide. But he’d wait to hit yet another landmark locale before recording his next live album. At the renown London Palladium, Buck and his Buckaroos performed a full program of their all-time hits and added to the festive...

                          Inspired by a phrase Buck often said to his concert audiences, the title track of 1968’s It Takes People Like You to Make People Like Me was written as a “thank you” to his legions of fans. Beyond the title track, there is much to be thankful for on this admirable album. Back by the inimitable Buckaroos and select special guests, the “Tiger” is enjoying himself immensely here. With all twelve tracks written or co-written by Buck, the album flew in the face of Nashville’s countrypolitan song...

It is all the more unusual, then, that none of the selections on this album would chart. Even more unusual, the title track was not even released as a single. However, the lack of chart action is in no way a comment on the album’s quality. Yet again, Buck and his Buckaroos serve up a superior mix of tracks: some upbeat, some ballads but all expertly sung and played. Guitar fans will...

                                  As a boy growing up on an isolated dairy farm outside Sherman, Texas, Buck Owens was enthralled by the Monroe Brothers, Wayne Rainey and the other bluegrass musicians he heard on the powerful border radio station XELO. Buck carried this love of bluegrass music throughout his career, transforming the pile driving rhythm of genre patriarch Bill Monroe into his own “freight train” sound. Having recently opened his own studio in Bakersfield, Buck was free to record the music that he wanted and...

                                    Buck Owens’ friendship with Harlan Howard began in California, bearing fruit in many fine co-written songs. The collaboration continued as Buck rose to be a top recording artist and the relocated Howard became one of Nashville’s top songsmiths. On Buck Owens Sings Harlan Howard, Buck performs eleven of his favorite Howard compositions, two of them co-written with Buck, and adds one of his own, “Think It Over,” for good measure. On cut after cut, Buck puts his unique stamp on classics like...

                                      Back when Buck Owens was a struggling guitar player, bouncing around the bars of Bakersfield, Tommy Collins heard him and hired him for his band. When Capitol Records producer Ken Nelson heard Buck’s skills during a Collins recording session, he was so impressed that he began using him on other artists’ sessions regularly and signed him to the label as a solo artist. With Buck Owens Sings Tommy Collins, Buck acknowledged the career boost given to him by Tommy and repaid the favor by recording...

                                        During his peak recording years, many of Buck’s LP’s featured one or more instrumentals, spotlighting the Buckaroos’ superior solo skills. The core band of guitarist/fiddler Don Rich, steel guitarist Tom Brumley, bassist Doyle Holly, drummer Willie Cantu and Buck himself on transcendent Telecaster leads all have a chance to shine on these selections. The Instrumental Hits collects previously released tracks, some of which had appeared on earlier Buck albums. The lone exception is the lead...

The two title tracks spent several weeks chasing each other up the country charts in 1964, even switching the #1 and #2 positions in consecutive weeks and then switching back again! Beyond those two classic tracks, the album is filled with other charting singles and well-known songs like “Hello Trouble,” “A-11” and “Close Up...

                                            His third full-length LP for Capitol, 1962’s You’re For Me found Buck evolving rapidly as an artist. The title cut, which hit #10 on the country singles chart, was a song he had originally written for Tommy Collins in 1954. Beyond the chart position and airplay the song garnered, it was significant for introducing Buck’s trademark “Freight Train” sound, employing a hard drum backbeat in driving 2/4 time. He later explained that he “always loved music that had lots of beat. I always wanted to...

Backed by the unparalleled mastery of the Buckaroos, Buck romps through the joyfully rollicking “Sam’s Place,” a chart-topping song inspired by a real Richmond, CA saloon.

Elsewhere on the album, Buck gives a heartfelt reading of former Buckaroo Merle Haggard’s song, “House of Memories.” Need more? How...
