Buck Speaks!

I purchased this next record from the vaults of the estate of the late, great Buck Owens! After he passed away, they found a lot of records in his archives, and they're being sold to collectors like myself who want the original vinyl with cool provenance. Or something like that. I'd never seen this record before, and it's the sort of thing that's right up my alley. It features greetings from Buck and his stable of artists from 1970, including some of his fellow Buckaroo's and his frequent duet partner Susan Raye. I think all of Buck's Christmas music is now out and available wherever fine downloads are sold, so that sort of stuff is off the table, but I'm sure you'll enjoy these holiday greetings. It's not just Christmas, you also get New Year's, Easter, the Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and even a generic holiday driving message. Artists include Buck Owens, Don Rich, Buddy Alan, Susan Raye, The Hagers, David Frizzell, Tony Booth and Larry Booth. It's quite the selection, 54 tracks in all, though they're very short. This is Merry Christmas/Happy New Year (Buck Owens Enterprises 7" 33 RPM PRO-1, Stereo, 1970).



  1. Thanks! Great stuff - I love Buck, have all his Capitol LPs.

  2. Thanks, Ernie. After big Saturday evening meals at the farm where mom grew up - Hee-Haw was always on and Don Rich was featured quite a bit with Buck and Roy Clark. I appreciate the share as always, Ernie. Thank you.

  3. There's a great Hee-Haw greeting on here from The Hagers which I'm sure will sound great on that Hee Haw Christmas collection I keep threatening to make! :)
