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

The Sundazed label has had no album requested more for reissue than this 1966 LP, on which Buck puts aside the honky-tonk anthems and delves into sacred songs!

4.0 out of 5 stars +1/2 -- Bakersfield praises the Lord January 5, 2004
Format:Audio CD
The bulk of this album was recorded at the end of 1965, right in the middle of Owens' phenomenal run of Bakersfield Sound recordings. The albums "I've Got a Tiger By the Tail" and "Christmas With Buck Owens" were lighting up the charts, and the Buckaroos triumphant Carnegie Hall concert was just ahead in 1966. This timing produced twelve original songs of faith that were written and recorded to the band's high-powered twang, rather than being adaptations of the band to a more traditional gospel sound.
From the opening bars of "Pray Every Day," it's clear that the joyful sound of the Buckaroos' hits was perfectly suited to stories of prayer, bible and family. Owens sings with the full-throated honky-tonk conviction of Hank Williams', but with harmonies (either his own, or those of Don Rich) mindful of the Louvin Brothers. Add the twang of Telecasters and pedal steel, and you have the soundtrack to Bakersfield's salvation.
Owens co-wrote many of the album's songs with the legendary Red Simpson; he also co-wrote a pair of tunes, "Bring it to Jesus" and "Eternal Vacation," with his mother, Macie. The album's title tune, along with "I'll Go to Church Again with Momma," recall Macie's own mother, Mary Myrtle, and reflect on the supportive family from which Owens' career sprang. The album is a Bakersfield hymnal of waltzes ("Jesus Saved Me" "All the Way With Jesus"), two-steppers ("Would You Be Ready?" "Satan's Gotta Get Along Without Me"), and fiddle-and-steel weepers ("Dust on Mother's Bible"). Every one of them is stamped through-and-through with the classic Buckaroos sound.
For reasons unknown, this album was not released with the bulk of Sundazed's reissues in the late `90s. Wrong finally righted, it's time for fans to rejoice and enjoy this essential entry in the Buck Owens catalog.
4-1/2 stars, if allowed fractional ratings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Maybe the BEST Buck album November 4, 2004
Format:Audio CD
In terms of sheer consistency and quality of songs, Dust On Mother's Bible might be the best Buck and the Buckaroos album. I'm not a religious person, but these songs are moving and entertaining at the same time. Pick this one up regardless of your beliefs. Honky Tonk Saviors would have been another appropriate title with multiple meanings!

5.0 out of 5 stars Buck Owens CD May 3, 2013

I can remember hearing these songs on one of my dad's 8track tapes back in the 1960s.
It brings back a lot of good memories. The music is still great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gospel done Bakersfield style! February 14, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am a dyed in the wool fan of both Buck and classic country gospel, so this was a no brainer for me. I was concerned, though. In the 50s and 60s, there was a trend in C&W music to "slick up" the gospel albums. Steel and fiddles were replaced by organs, muted guitar and , occasionally, choruses. With some artists, such as Jim Reeves, this worked. For Buck, it would have been a disaster. Thankfully , the powers that be at Capitol had discovered the easiest way to have great records on Buck was let the man do his thing. The result here is a honky tonk gospel set that uplifts the soul and keeps the toe tapping at the same time.
Recorded in 1965 (except for one session in 61) and released early the next year, Dust on Mother's Bible is treated with the dignity it deserves by Buck, Don , and all the Buckaroos. A must have.
