Craft Recordings is pleased to announce three vinyl reissues, available January 17th, from some of the most popular names in country music: Roy Clark, Buck Owens, and Susan Raye. All three artists—interconnected through their love of entertaining—were household names thanks to the television show Hee Haw, but each of them broke new ground in their own right when it came to country music. The titles include Roy Clark’s Greatest Hits, The Very Best of Buck Owens & Susan Raye, and Susan Raye’s 16 Greatest Hits.
If someone thinks they’ve got a cooler Buck Owens collection, we’ve got two words for them: Buck ’Em! As the newest release in its continuing and acclaimed reissue campaign, Omnivore Recordings is proud to announce Buck ’Em! The Music of Buck Owens (1955-1967) — an anthology of a different kind.
In its continuing mission to promote the Bakersfield country legacy of Buck Owens and the Buckaroos featuring Don Rich, Omnivore Recordings will issue two collections that spotlight the town’s most storied musicians: Don Rich’s That Fiddlin’ Man from 1971, and the all-instrumental The Buckaroos Play Buck and Merle, which marries the 1965 LP The Buck Owens Songbook and 1971’s The Songs of Merle Haggard.
