After nearly 30 years, Sundazed restores this catalog to its rightful place atop the A-list of classic country. Celebrate the joy of pickin' and the heartbreak of lovin'!

        Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Buckin' the establishment! Perennial trailblazers whose electrifying Bakersfield sound topped the country charts for most of the '60s, Buck Owens and the Buckaroos plowed even newer ground with the 1971 album Bridge Over Troubled Water. Bridge finds Buck and the boys giving a big thumbs-up to the thoughtful folk-rock sound of Simon & Garfunkel, Bob Dylan and Donovan. Bridge saw heavy chart action, justifying Buck Owens' desire to roll with the times while...

          There was no stopping Buck Owens in 1964! I Don't Care, released in November of that year, contained another #1 smash country hit in the title track. The album also initiated the tradition of showcasing the individual talents of the Buckaroos along with Buck himself. Featuring vocals by bassist Doyle Holly and guitarist/fiddle player Don Rich, the band turned in spirited renditions of current country hits like "Abilene" and "Louisiana Man." Buck also served notice of his premier guitar prowess...

              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...

                Released in February 1966, Roll Out the Red Carpet arrived in the midst of a flurry of Buck Owens hit singles. 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...

                  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...

                        There is something palpably avant-garde in the frenetic energy of Owens' unmistakably American (read: Bakersfield) sound set against the cultural backdrop of Tokyo. However, Buck Owens & His Buckaroos prove the adage that the currency of music defies borders and is indeed the universal language. On Buck Owens & His Buckaroos in Japan!, the band rises to the occasion, performing perennial favorites and previewing tracks from its upcoming album, It Takes People Like You to Make People Like Me....

                          Led by the smash hit title track, 1967's Your Tender Loving Care extended Buck Owens' best-selling album run. 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. Featuring the deft left hand of guitarist Don Rich, the song remains a fan favorite. Elsewhere on the album, Buck gives a heartfelt reading of former Buckaroo Merle Haggard's song, "House of Memories." Need more? How...

                              Based around numbers he was performing in his live shows, 1963's On the Bandstand features a mix of self-penned songs and then-current country favorites. Besides Buck, the spotlight shines on individual band members throughout the album. Speaking of the band, they were mere months away from being named The Buckaroos, courtesy of Merle Haggard who served briefly as their bass player before moving on to his own solo career. The sole hit on the original version of the album was "Kickin' Our...

                                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...
