Eleven #1 hits are included, but in true Omnivore fashion, 'I've Got A Tiger By The Tail,' 'Love's Gonna Live Here,' 'I Don't Care (Just As Long As You Love Me),' 'Sam's Place,' and 'Before You Go' are in their original mono single versions. Live versions (including some from the historic Carnegie Hall concert) of 'Act Naturally,' 'Buckaroo,' and 'Together Again' are featured and alternate versions of 'My Heart Skips A Beat,' 'Where Do The Good Times Go,' and 'How Long Will My Baby Be Gone' make their US CD debut. Add in a previously unissued version of 'Under The Influence Of Love' and the CD debut of Omnivore's sold-out Record Store Day single 'Close Up The Honky Tonks,' this collection shapes up to be indispensable to not only fans of Owens and The Buckaroos, but any fan of classic Country Music.
Beginning with three Pep Records sides from 1955-56 through 1967's triumphant tour of Japan, Buck 'Em! tells the story of Buck Owens like no other release has. Buck 'Em! will be released as a companion to the upcoming Buck 'Em! The Autobiography Of Buck Owens by Buck Owens with Randy Poe, coming November 5 from Backbeat Books/Hal Leonard Books. Featuring liner notes taken from the book, detailed session information, and rare photos, Buck 'Em! looks to be the audio release that every Country Music fan will want for Christmas. (Good thing it also contains the original mono single version of 'Santa Looked A Lot Like Daddy!')
Buck 'Em! works as a great introduction to the new Buck Owens fan, and a fascinating listen with some new rarities for the longtime one. It s hard to believe this much music came into the world in only twelve years, but Buck 'Em! The Music Of Buck Owens (1955-1967) proves it was not only Buckin' possible, but Buckin' incredible.
