New Buck Owens Collection Compiles Late ’60s Singles

Omnivore Recordings

Buck Owens and the Buckaroos’ Capitol Records singles, known for both song quality and a treble-heavy sound that made them stand out on AM radio, educated Dwight Yoakam and numerous others about the allure of West Coast country music. Omnivore Recordings and the Buck Owens estate want to make sure a new generation follows the same Bakersfield 101 syllabus with a series of singles compilations. The next two-disc volume, The Complete Capitol Singles: 1967-1970, arrives May 11.

Although these years overlap the time when Hee Haw first started overshadowing Owens’ more serious material, these 36 remastered A and B sides capture one of the best country bands ever building on prior success. Beyond the expected amped-up rockabilly and tender love ballads, this period introduced more variety to the Buckaroos’ catalog. For example, the compilation includes trippy baroque pop experiment “Who’s Gonna Mow Your Grass” and the international vibes of instrumental track Turkish Holiday.”
