Album Review

Long one of the finer efforts in the Buck Owens album catalog and also one of the finest live country records of all time, In Japan! shines in its compact disc reissue. Originally released by Capitol in 1967, this finds Buck Owens & His Buckaroos in the prime of their chart-topping existence and playing like a well-oiled machine, firing exquisitely on all cylinders. The opening and closing remarks and between-song translating banter to the audience from MC Tetsuo Otsuka make for wonderful ambience throughout, and Owens' good-natured master-of-ceremonies turns work hand in glove with him. Musically, the Buckaroos, led by Don Rich, are at the top of their game, and the live versions here of "Open Up Your Heart," "Roll Out the Red Carpet," and "Where Does the Good Times Go" sometimes eclipse their better-known hit studio versions. Although his Live at Carnegie Hall album is considered by most fans as definitive, here's another one that shouldn't be dismissed for a second.

Customer Reviews

Buck and the boys at their best!!!

This album was recorded live in Japan at the height of Buck Owens' career, and unlike Bucks other live albums, the usual hits (Act Naturally, Tiger By The Tail, Together Again, etc) are missing from this album, being replaced with some newer songs heard for the first ( and last) time here, such as the opening track, "Adios, Farewell, Goodbye, Good Luck, So Long" and "Born To Be In Love With You. This album doesn't dissappoint, however, as the performance is well up to Buck's usual standard. All of the Buckaroo band members get to do a solo spot, and the musicianship is tight. The Buckaroos were one of the hippest country bands of the '60's. If you like vintage honky tonk country music driven by twangy Telecasters and pedal steel guitars, check this one out. Five stars , in my opinion.
