Buck Owens' career was in high enough gear by this point for I Don't Care to be his third album for the year. The reason was simple: the hit status of the title track, which held the number one position on the country charts for six weeks. Like his previous albums, this one features solo performances from Owens (this batch featuring "Don't Let Her Know," "You're Welcome Anytime," "Playboy," "This Ol' Heart," and a duet with Rose Maddox, "Loose Talk") mixed with solo turns by the rest of the band. In addition to Don Rich's takes on Roger Miller's "Dang Me" and "Louisiana Man," this also features two vocals from bassist Doyle Holly ("Abilene" and a version of "Understand Your Man" that's positively growly), "Bud's Bounce," a showcase for steel guitar man Tom Brumley, and a surprise guitar solo from Owens on "Buck's Polka." [The two bonus tracks feature instrumental versions of "Don't Let Her Know" and the title track, both under the direction of Rich from the 1966 Buck Owens' Songbook album.]
Includes the #1 smash country hit "I Don't Care"!
There was no stopping Buck Owens in 1964! I Don’t Care, released in November of that year, contained another #1 smash country hit in the title track. The album also initiated the tradition of showcasing the individual talents of the Buckaroos along with Buck himself. Featuring vocals by bassist Doyle Holly and guitarist/fiddle player Don Rich, the band turned in spirited renditions of current country hits like “Abilene” and “Louisiana Man.” Buck also served notice of his premier guitar prowess on the instrumental “Buck’s Polka.” The two bonus tracks on this remastered Sundazed Music edition are instrumental versions of “I Don’t Care” and “Don’t Let Her Know,” originally found on the album The Buck Owens Songbook. Dang me, this album is good!
