Honky Tonk Man – Buck Sings Country Classics

CD (Item 640093) Omnivore, Early/Mid 70s — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock


4.60 26

Classic-level Buck Owens covers of honky tonk standards – recorded at his own Bakersfield studio in the early-to-mid 70s to be ready to use on the Hee Haw show – but never released before this excellent compilation on Omnivore! The show was famous for trotting out both contemporary and classic country tunes for Buck and others to sing – and as both a host and a presenter, Buck prepared a heck of a lot of great stuff, just to be stocked up and prepared. All of the tracks here are previously unreleased, and it's probably as strong as just about anything else Buck was recording at the time! Includes "Honky Tonk Man", "Swinging Doors", "Hey, Good Lookin'", "Stay A Little Longer", "I'm Movin On", "In The Jailhouse Now", "Live Fast, Love Hard, Die Young", "Jambalaya (On The Bayou)", "My Bucket's Got A Hole In It", "The Bridge Washed Out" and more.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Bold, beautiful work from one of our favorite contemporary bassists – a player with a great ear for his own instrument, and for its larger place in music as well! Torbjorn Zetterburg really hits things hard with this great set – writing, arranging, and producing a set of material that ... CD

Weird, wacky stuff that we can't help but like! Jenks Tex Carman was a strange dude who recorded for Capitol in the early 50s – singing pared down country ditties peppered with lots of mush-mouth gibberish that he claimed was Cherokee – it's NOT. He also added lots of odd Hawaiian ... CD
