  • Buckaroos - Plays Buck & Merle (CD)

    18,00

    When a young Merle Haggard played in Buck Owens band, he suggested the name Buckaroos for the combo. While Merle s tenure in the band was shortlived, he did pretty well for himself afterward. And The Buckaroos name not only stuck, but the band became almost as notable as their leader. Their playing became as noticeable as Buck s distinct songwriting and delivery.So, it was only natural that The Buckaroos first LP would be a tribute to their leader. The Buck Owens Songbook was released in 1965 and gave fans a chance to sing along with their favorite Buck hits with The Buckaroos as their backing group lyrics provided. Six years and 10 albums later saw the band pay tribute on their last LP to the man who named them. The Songs Of Merle Haggard appeared in 1971, and featured The Buckaroos instrumental take on classics like Mama Tried and Okie From Muskogee. Sadly, that LP didn t come with a lyric booklet like its predecessor.It seems natural that these two releases should be joined together on one compact disc paying tribute to the leading pioneers of the Bakersfield Sound. The Buckaroos Play Buck & Merle features all 22 songs from both original LPs. And, this time, in addition to the words to the Buck songs, we re providing the lyrics to the Merle tracks, too! Add in original artwork, rarely seen photos, plus reminiscences from Buckaroos Willie Cantu, Doyle Curtsinger and Jim Shaw, and you ve got a release that is gonna make you want to sing! And, who better to back you up than The incredible Buckaroos!

  • Buckaroos - Best Of The (CD)

    Spotlighting the flying fingers of Buckaroos guitar-picking whiz Don Rich, the full-bodied pedal steel of Tom Brumley and the rocksteady rhythm of bassist Doyle Holly backed by the solid beat of drummers Willie Cantu and Jerry Wiggins, this Buckaroos smorgasbord is the perfect introduction to the band that created the Bakersfield Sound behind country music Hall of Famer Buck Owens. Here’s the definitive example of their forward-thinking style – an electrified honky-tonk sound that wowed the crowds wherever they played. This set clearly defines what made the vibrant Bakersfield sound of Buck Owens and the Buckaroos compelling enough to grab the country charts by the throat in the mid-’60s and not let go, while scoring plenty of cross-over pop-chart success at the same time.
