Tall Dark Stranger on CD

THE WAY IT WAS IN '69... 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 Owens tried to bring more variety to his sound. Acutely aware of changes in pop music, Buck Owens 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 Owens' 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 Owens' son, Buddy Alan, and an amazing unreleased duet with R&B singer Bettye Swann.
