Buck Owens and His Buckaroos - In Japan! - Download on iTunes

Recorded at Tokyo’s Kosei Nenkin Hall on February 6, 1967 before a standing room only crowd, Buck Owens and his Buckaroos' In Japan! was the first live country album ever recorded outside the United States. Such was the band’s popularity in Japan that the crowd was on their feet from the first note to the last. Buck wrote a song specifically for the concert, titled “Tokyo Polka,” which combined the musical strains of the U.S. and Japan, arriving at a unique “country & eastern” style. “Second Fiddle,” the first Buck Owens single released in Japan, receives a particularly rousing welcome from the crowd as you will hear. And while you’ll hear announcer Tetsuo Otsuka interpreting Buck’s stage remarks for the crowd, the music of Buck and the boys needed no translation whatsoever. Listen to one of the finest country bands ever to grace a stage, from Tennessee to Tokyo!
