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

CD


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.

Plantation/Charly (UK), Late 60s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2 CDs
A totally great look at the unique Plantation Records label – home to some key crossover country hits at the end of the 60s, and a fair bit of wonderful novelty numbers in the decade to follow! Plantation was an imprint that came into being at a time when there was hardly a need to act like ... CD
Righteous (UK), 1950s. New Copy
Some of the best early heartbreaking country numbers you're likely to hear – the hugely underappreciated earlier records cut by singer Goldie Hill in the 50s – work the influenced some of the very best female honky tonk singers of 50s, 60s & 70s – but Goldie still doesn't get ... CD
Delay 68 (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
A fantastic follow-up to the first Folk Is Not A Four Letter Word compilation – and like that set, a CD that's bound to reshape your ideas of the genre! The work here is hardly the familiar folk of the 60s – and instead, tracks are pulled from a motherlode of obscure rarities that ... CD
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
Compete Paramount & Brunswick
Tompkins Square, Late 20s. New Copy
A beautiful collection of rare 78 rpm material – the complete 1929 recordings of Charlie Poole & The Highlanders – some of the smokingest string band music you'll ever find from the time! The set was lovingly remastered from vintage 78s cut for Paramount and Brunswick – and ... 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
RCA/Omni (Australia), 1970/1973. New Copy
Classic level greatness from Bobby Bare – with the complete The Real Thing and I Hate Goodbyes/Ride Me Down Easy records from 1970 and 1973 – plus a smattering of some his best ever recordings as bonus tracks! At his peak – and we consider this to be peak material – Bobby ... CD
Enja (Germany), 2013. New Copy
One of the greatest trumpeters on the European scene of the past few decades – heard here in a completely sublime setting! Dusko Goykovich has played in many styles and many ways, but hasn't ever done a date with full strings before – a long-overdue placement for his wonderful tone on ... CD
Bubble Gum Machine
Senate/Rock Beat, Late 60s. New Copy
A sweet 60s pop group that definitely lives up to its name, but one that also has a surprisingly soulful undercurrent too! The leadoff cut – "Wha Cha Gonna Do For Me Now" – has a killer break at the start, and a pretty groove groove all the way through – and is arranged ... CD
Uniko (Canada), 1961. New Copy
We're not sure if Jose Fajardo actually recorded this album in Japan, but we can say that it's a great little smoker that stands with his best from the early 60s – filled with lively pachanga rhythms, and graced with plenty of his own deft work on flute! The vibe is upbeat and lively – ... CD
