Editorial Reviews

(8-CD LP-sized Box Set + 108 page hardcover book) This 8-CD set chronicles every existing recording from Buck Owens' last years with CAPITOL RECORDS. Every week he was on the hugely popular 'Hee-Haw' TV show, his concerts were sell-outs, and he was building a business empire in his adopted hometown, Bakersfield, California. He recorded at his own studio and fans across the country had an insatiable appetite for his raw voice, his clever, snappy songs and the band's minimalist twang. It was success on a scale that every singer dreamed of, but few ever got and fewer still could handle.

During his last years on CAPITOL, Buck tried to bring more variety to his sound. Acutely aware of changes in pop music, Buck admired rock bands' freedom to create and experiment with new and unorthodox sounds. This set includes a wider mix of styles than Buck had ever tried on record before. There are over 20 charted hits, beginning with Tall Dark Stranger and ending with Buck's exciting new version of The Battle Of New Orleans. In between are Buck Owens classics like I Wouldn't Live In New York City (If They Gave Me The Whole Dang Town), Bridge Over Troubled Water, Ruby, Rollin' In My Sweet Baby's Arms, Made In Japan, Ain't It Amazing Gracie, On The Cover Of Music City News, Monsters' Holiday, and the original version of Streets Of Bakersfield (later a #1 hit duet with Dwight Yoakam). This set also includes all the LPs, his bluegrass sessions, all the duets with Susan Raye, Buck's son, Buddy Alan, and an amazing unreleased duet with R&B singer Bettye Swann. Plus all the Buckaroos' albums! Alongside the hits, there are many previously unreleased songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars A masterpiece! July 30, 2012
This third Bear set on Buck's Capital recordings, is a true gem. There are many previously unreleased songs and some remakes of some of his old 60's hits. This is a fantastic set to own as it contains some outstanding songs such as his version of Today I Started Loving You Again, and he does some rock covers such as BridgeOver Troubled Water, and Homeward Bound. Buck experemented a lot in the 70's and this set has a great deal of those recordings of rock covers. It features his duets with Susan Ray and they do a beautiful job on Mickey and Sylvia's Love Is Strange. Highly, highly recommended! Now, it's time for Bear to do a set called, Complete Live Recordings! Like with the Merle Haggard Concepts set, they should do a set on all his live releases.

4.0 out of 5 stars Missing the Tall Dark Stranger July 1, 2013
Verified Purchase
This Box Set should be called "Missing the tall dark stranger". This set is supposed to include buck owens 1969-1975 Capitol recordings. All The CD jewel cases have pics of the tall dark stranger but the only 2 songs in the set from the original album are "Tall Dark Stranger" & "But you know I love you".
9 Missing tracks are: "There are gonna be some changes made", "White Satin Bed", "Darlin' you can depend on me", "In the middle of a teardrop", "Across the town and gone", "Maybe If I closed my eyes", " I would do anything for you", "Sing that kind of song", "Hurtin' like I never have hurt before". I haven't finished going thru this cd set or book so my rating might change. that is why I am giving it a 4 out of 5 for now. I might revise when I am finished going thru set. I am not sure what else is missing if any.
Bear family, do your research, ur dropping the ball. Hey Bear family, Capitol, or anybody! Please Come out with the complete Tall Dark Stranger original album, on CD.
