I have to admit, I came to appreciate Buck Owens through other artists' versions of his songs. Primarily Ray Charles, but there were many others. My selection of the day is one of Buck's finest as performed by Oklahoman country-pop singer Jody Miller (whose birthday is today). Like a lot of country of the 1960s, this record incorporates elements of pop and soul (check out that pumping dirty horn driving this song along). I tell ya, it doesn't get much better than this.

I'm excited to highlight some of my favorite records in a variety of genres (soul, R&B, classic country, rockabilly, oldies, garage rock, etc). These won't all necessarily be "dance" records per se. They will all be records that I believe deserve a special listen. I simply love good music, rare or not. Hopefully you will spend some time here and love music right along with me! Lets give this a shot!
