Buck Owens – Live in Scandinavia (1970)

Share this:

Among some of my Internet friends, I’m known for being into “obscure” jazz. I suppose this is true, though given the average person’s engagement with the jazz world (face it people, it’s a pretty small number, percentage-wise), the definition of “obscure” is a slippery one.

Maybe I just like obscure things, period. Like this country record. Thank goodness for Sundazed Records. They have reissued so many cool and obscure (hey, there’s that word again) rock, country, soul, surf, and rockabilly albums. In this era of the bean-counter-driven record label, it’s heartening to see that somebody out there still cares about music.

Sundazed has been a champion of the entire Buck Owens and the Buckaroos back catalog, and this entry added to that legacy. Check it out, because Buck was much more than an guy who played guitar and laughed at bad jokes on Hee Haw.
