What's especially remarkable about this concert is a song selection that introduces many new songs, including a few that appear nowhere else (or, at best, very obscurely) in the Buckaroos record catalog. Among the new tunes are "Adios, Farewell, Goodbye, Good Luck, So Long," "Open Up Your Heart," and a trio of instrumentals: "Fiddle Polka," "Steel Guitar Polka," and "Tokyo Polka." The Buckaroos also take on Cajun music with Bob Morris' "Fishin' on the Mississippi," with Owens' partner, Don Rich, taking the lead vocal.
As on the Carnegie disc, Owens and Rich sing harmonies with a magnetism that is supernatural. As polished as their duets are on disc, sung live makes daring is all the more evident. Accompanied by ringing telecasters (both Owens and Rich show off their ability to play stinging leads), Tom Brumley's twanging steel, and the solid bottom end of Wayne Wilson and Willie Cantu, these tracks are at once letter-perfect, yet swinging and free. The Buckaroos had a musical chemistry that few bands could ever match, and "In Japan!" captures the band's essence in all its glory.
