I was watching a very fine best-of-clip show of artists who had been on the Ed Sullivan show on SkyArts the other night and was stopped in my tracks by a very fine song called Tall Dark Stranger by a bloke called Buck Owens. It sounded like something The Flying Burrito Brothers or Gram would do. Country but really rockin’ along at a grand pace. Went on T’Amazon and there was quite a bit to choose from by him. Apparently Buck Owens and Merle Haggard were big names in, and I quote: ‘The Bakersfield Sound’. All new to me pal. Any recommends because if all his stuff is as good as ‘Tall Dark Stranger’ I need to own it. All of it.
