The second volume of the complete Buck Owens, this 7-CD set includes all of Buck Owens' studio recordings for Capitol from March 1965 until December 1968. This was his golden era when almost every single went to #1 on the country charts. The hits on this volume include such all-time classics as Only You Can Break My Heart, Buckaroo, Waitin' In Your Welfare Line, Open Up Your Heart, Where Does The GoodTimes Go, Sam's Place, It Takes People Like You, and many more.
This set also includes complete LPs, such as 'I've Got You On My Mind Again,' 'Before You Go / No One But You,' 'Open Up Your Heart' and 'Your Tender Loving Care' as well as the Buckaroos' LPs, featuring the great Doyle Holly, Don Rich, and Tom Brumley. Staying well away from the pop-country Nashville Sound, Buck Owens was unapologetically country to the core. His catchy, hook-laden songs were framed by Don Rich's vocal harmonies and biting Telecaster guitar leads and Tom Brumley's crisp steel guitar. The set also includes previously unissued alternate takes and all surviving unissued songs.
Drawing upon his extensive interviews with Buck Owens, his sidemen and business associates, country music historian Rich Kienzle provides a frank and detailed overview of Buck Owens' career. A complete discography and many previously unpublished photos are also included in a lavish hardcover book.
