The Carnegie Hall Concert

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Scott Schinder
At the height of their immense popularity in the 1960s, California-based Buck Owens and his supremely gifted band the Buckaroos were the foremost purveyors of the Bakersfield sound, which fused traditional hardcore honky-tonk with electrified guitar twang and driving, rock-'n'-roll-derived beats. Both a witty, hook-savvy songwriter and an ingratiatingly effervescent vocalist, Owens was equally adept at romantic ballads and heartbroke weepers, but it's their catchy, up-tempo material that really defined his and his group's organic genius.

Barnes & Noble - Scott Schinder
At the height of their immense popularity in the 1960s, California-based Buck Owens and his supremely gifted band the Buckaroos were the foremost purveyors of the Bakersfield sound, which fused traditional hardcore honky-tonk with electrified guitar twang and driving, rock-'n'-roll-derived beats. Both a witty, hook-savvy songwriter and an ingratiatingly effervescent vocalist, Owens was equally adept at romantic ballads and heartbroke weepers, but it's their catchy, up-tempo material that really defined his and his group's organic genius. Carnegie Hall Concert commemorates Owens's now-legendary 1966 show at the hallowed New York venue - a landmark at the time, signaling country's acceptance into the musical mainstream as well as urban audiences embrace of the music. It's a virtual greatest-hits album that finds Owens and group -- including the great guitarist/fiddler/harmony singer Don Rich and the equally brilliant steel guitarist Tom Brumley -- tearing into such Owens classics as "Act Naturally," "Love's Gonna Live Here," "I've Got a Tiger by the Tail," and the rollicking instrumental "Buckaroo" with their usual blend of joyous innocence and sophisticated expertise. There's also some agreeably corny between-song schtick that shows off the natural comedic flair that would serve Owens well in his long-running stint as cohost of TV's Hee Haw, not to mention a humorous but rocking version of "Twist and Shout" that demonstrates Owens's genuine affection for his British admirers the Beatles, who'd already covered "Act Naturally."
All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Buck Owens & the Buckaroos' 1966 concert at Carnegie Hall was a landmark not only for the band, but for country music: It signaled that country had firmly integrated itself not only into America's popular music mainstream, but also urban centers like New York. Owens and the Buckaroos had to deliver a stellar performance, and they did -- the group sounded like dynamite, tearing through a selection of their classic hits with vigor. Several decades removed from the performance itself, what really comes through is how musical and gifted the Buckaroos were, particularly Don Rich. For dedicated fans, it's a necessary addition to their collection.
