The Buck starts here
Buck Owens spesielle versjon av country har vist seg å ha svært lang levetid. Det innebærer at det fra tid til annen er marked for en ny samleplate. Denne gangen er det Time Life som tar jobben, og benytter anledningen til å smette inn noen country-snobb godbiter. Her er selskapets pressemelding og platas utvalg:
Time Life is proud to release the definitive Buck Owens collection. BUCK OWENS: ALL-TIME GREATEST HITS includes over a dozen #1 tracks plus many of his best-known songs that didn't reach #1, such as »Under Your Spell Again,« »Above & Beyond,« and »Crying Time« (originally a B-side, and later a big hit for Ray Charles).
BUCK OWENS: ALL-TIME GREATEST HITS also includes the rare original version of »Streets of Bakersfield,« (re-recorded 15 years later by Buck and Dwight Yoakam and a #1 hit). Not only is this definitive collection packed with signature songs and rarities omitted from previous best-of collections, but it won't disappoint his casual fan with 13 #1 hits like »Act Naturally,« »Love's Gonna Live Here,« »Together Again,« »Sam's Place,« »My Heart Skips a Beat« and »Before You Go.«
No other country artist dominated the 1960s like the Bard of Bakersfield. Buck Owens' twisted, long syllables and twangy interplay with guitarist Don Rich put a signature stamp on material ranging from the up-tempo »I've Got a Tiger by the Tail« -- a pop crossover smash as well-to the heartfelt »Together Again« and »Only You (Can Break My Heart).« Back in 1965 he issued his pledge to country music: He vowed to only be a country singer his entire career -- and naturally, he did just that to the very end.
