Overview

A long-overdue reissue of Buck Owens's 1965 classic, Christmas with Buck Owens and His Buckaroos features a dozen choice songs, many of them cowritten by Buck and the venerable Red Simpson. This is some kind of honky-tonk Yuletide blowout, with a song to suit every mood and temperament, from the festive to the meditative to the forlorn. Highlights include the bouncy, witty hit single, "Santa Looked a Lot Like Daddy (Daddy Looked A Lot Like Him)"; the Owens-Simpson heartbreak classic, "Blue Christmas Lights," which now sounds like a ready-to-bake Mavericks cover; the beautiful, yearning "All I Want For Christmas Is You"; and the devastating "It's Christmas Time For Everyone But Me," replete with one of Buck's best blues-tinged vocals on record. Two sprightly instrumentals, "Jingle Bells" and "Christmas Morning," showcase the Buckaroos' impeccable instrumental chops. This one sounds better every year.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Cub Koda
This 1999 reissue of Owens' 1967 Christmas album is a straight-up affair; with no hidden bonus tracks, just the straight 12 tracks from two 1965 sessions (odd they waited two years to put this stuff out), this is prime Buck Owens and His Buckaroos in the holiday mode. Featured here are "Santa Looked a Lot Like Daddy," "Santa's Gonna Come in a Stagecoach," and enough Yule-time weepers to make you realize that the holidays have a mighty dark side, too.
