Biography

Biography by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Buck Owens, along with Merle Haggard, was the leader of the Bakersfield sound, a twangy, electricified, rock-influenced interpretation of hardcore honky tonk that emerged in the '60s. Owens was the first bona fide country star to emerge from Bakersfield, scoring a total of 15 consecutive number one hits in the mid-'60s. In the process, he ...

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

This album is brimming with holiday country classics-a dozen of Buck's best, including Christmas Time Is Near; Good Old-Fashioned Country Christmas; It's Not What You Give; A Very Merry Christmas; One of Everything You Got; Tomorrow Is Christmas Day , and more.

Amazon.com

Buck Owens almost single-handedly created the fabled Bakersfield sound that made such singers as Merle Haggard and Dwight Yoakam famous. And it's pure Bakersfield Buck through most of this record, with its borderline maudlin tunes about absent daddies, bulging families with a christmas shopping list that threatens to put them in the poor house, and moralistic songs such as "It's Not What You Give." Ordinarily these sentiments would drive many a sane and good-hearted person from the room. But in the hands of Owens and his Buckaroos, whether they're doing "A Very Merry Christmas" or the record's timeless highlight, "Merry Christmas from Our House to Yours," it's practically required listening, and with ample charm and country-rock satisfaction. --Martin Keller

5.0 out of 5 stars Christmas ain't Christmas without Buck Owens ;-) December 10, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I just ordered 3 copies of this album! One for me, one for my sister, and one for my parents! When I was a kid we had the Buck Owens "A Merry Hee Haw Christmas" Double Album. It had 10 songs from this "Christmas Shopping" album and 10 songs from the "Christmas With Buck Owens" album.

All I can say is you can't have one without the other. It's not Christmas in our house until we listen to Buck Owens.

This album is the best of the two in my opinion, although listening to only one is like eating a P.B. & J. without the jelly. It may still be good, but it won't be as sweet!! ;-)

Buck Owens Christmas albums stand the test of time like no other Christmas albums I've ever had.

There are songs on here that I loved as a kid ("Christmas Shopping" & "One of Everything You Got") and still love as an adult. You don't outgrow this album!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Classic Country Christmas Album June 3, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Buck Owens gives his all for a fantastic collection of unique Christmas songs.
If you are looking for songs far from the mainstream Christmas staples, this is the album for you. For anyone who ever was a child or has a child, you'll be able to identify with "One Of Everything You Got", a humorous song about children and there requests for gifts. And "All I Want For Christmas Is My Daddy", will surely tug at your heart strings.
Every song is destined to become a family favorite. Hearing them brings me back to my childhood, when my Grandfather would play this record for me, and we would sing every song to each other.

5.0 out of 5 stars I can't believe I found it! December 16, 1999
Format:Audio CD
I grew up listening to this album every Christmas. Our family has been looking for it ever since. It just doesn't seem like Christmas without it. It is by far the best Christmas album ever.I was in disbelief when I saw it.I still know every song by heart and I havent heard it in 24 years. I've just been singing them every year instead of listening to them. Once again I can belt them out to the music. I cant wait!

5.0 out of 5 stars After a Long Search Christmas is Christmas again September 16, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
5 years ago I went throught the pain staking process of finding a mint LP of Buck Owen's Christams albums. So I coudl have the songs I had as a kids from the Buck Owens "A Merry Hee Haw Christmas" Double Album again. Like a previous reviewer said It had 10 songs from this "Christmas Shopping" album and 10 songs from the "Christmas With Buck Owens" album. And I agree with him when he said It's not Christmas in our house until we listen to Buck Owens.

I am buying multiple copies for my family as well. It's wonderful and I am so glad they brought it back.

5.0 out of 5 stars All I Want For Christmas Is My Daddy... December 21, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
My daughter-in-law lost her dad several years ago and this particular CD was one of her special Christmas memories of him. I wanted to surprise her with it this Christmas and was so glad that i checked out Amazon. When i presented it to her she couldn't wait to play it...and she sang along with all the familiar songs. Its well worth the money for those looking for old fashioned down home good country music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Honest and true country April 24, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I grew up listening to Buck Owens every Christmas. I am first generation born American and my parents strived to be as American as possible, so we listened to country occasionally. For me, it isn't Christmas until I hear this record- so nice to have it on CD. It gives one a feeling that it's still possible to have a warm, comforting, wholesome holiday season without the commercialism.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Christmas Music! January 6, 2009
Format:Audio CD
We used to listen to this every year as I was growing up as we decorated the family Christmas tree. Finding this on cd has allowed me to continue that tradition with my children. It brings back wonderful memories of Christmas past and is creating new memories for my own family. I'm so glad this is available on cd now!
