Product Details

Digitally remastered two-fer containing a pair of albums from the Country outfit best known for backing Buck Owens. When a young Merle Haggard played in Buck's band, he suggested the name Buckaroos for the combo. While Merle's tenure in the band was short-lived, he did pretty well for himself afterward. And The Buckaroos name not only stuck, but the band became almost as notable as their leader. So, it was only natural that The Buckaroos first LP would be a tribute to their leader. The Buck Owens Songbook was released in 1965 and gave fans a chance to sing along with their favorite Buck hits with The Buckaroos as their backing group lyrics provided. Six years and 10 albums later saw the band pay tribute on their last LP to the man who named them. The Songs of Merle Haggard appeared in 1971. It seems natural that these two releases should be joined together on one compact disc paying tribute to the leading pioneers of the Bakersfield Sound. The Buckaroos Play Buck & Merle features all 22 songs from both original LPs.
