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.

Rev-Ola (UK), 1971. New Copy
Sublimely orchestrated pop from the duo of Chuck & Mary Perrin – a rich blend of strings and folk guitar, done in a way that carries echoes of contemporary work from Nick Drake or Leonard Cohen. The style's a bit sweeter here than either Cohen or Drake – given the harmonizing that ... CD

Delmore, 1970. New Copy
Sublime solo work from Peter Walker – a hell of a guitarist with a very edgy sound, and a vocalist with this dark tone that almost takes us back to some of the moodier moments from the early Velvet Underground! The combination is amazing – very deft, complicated lines on a Gibson ... CD
