My Buck Owens’ review posts to Elmore magazine

10 Jan

Elmore Magazine | Buck OwensFifty original recordings by the late country legend Alvis Edgar “Buck” Owens Jr. and his band, the Buckaroos, sound better today than ever before with the release of Buck ‘Em! Volume 2: The Music of Buck Owens (1967-1975).

This double album, a sequel to Buck ‘Em! Volume 1: The Music of Buck Owens (1955-1967), features beloved Owens classics alongside seven previously unreleased tracks. Personal favorites include “Corn Liquor,” “The Battle of New Orleans,” “Let the World Keep On A Turnin,’” “Today I Started Loving You Again,” and “Streets of Bakersfield.”

In addition, exceptionally high-energy recordings of Owens’ live performances deliver front-row-seat entertainment on tracks like “I’ve Got a Tiger By the Tail,” performed in Washington, D.C. while President Lyndon B. Johnson served in the White House, “Johnny B. Goode,” from London, and “Rollin’ in My Sweet Baby’s Arms,” from Australia.
