Country music guitarist, singer and songwriter Buck Owens was, along with Merle Haggard, one of the most noted pioneers of the Bakersfield sound which became popular during the early 1960s, and named after the California town where it had it's creative origins. The sound was characterised by twangy guitars and prominent drums in the contemporary rock 'n' roll-influenced style while retaining the traditional elements of fiddle and steel guitar. 

This album is an entertaining overview of his key formative career before he embarked on his better-known era as a high-profile hit maker through the 1960s and '70s and offers a fascinating insight into the roots of the Bakersfield sound.
