    Wow! Just when I think I’ve heard it all, more great live albums of Buck keep surfacing tat I wasn’t aware of.

    Sounds like someone oher than Owens singing, but interesting they did that, in 1970. Make sense they did it in a different market.

    This is way off the point of Ellroy's post, but I envision the album cover designers having a lengthy discussion about whether to put the word "live" in quotation marks.

    -- if you DO, then it makes the reader wonder if this was really recorded in front of a live audience, or just maybe some kind of simulated deal with fake applause, etc.

    -- if you DON'T, then it looks like Buck is encouraging people to live in Scandinavia (i.e., to take up residence there).

    -- yes, I have too much time on my hands.

    I like it! I'm not a country fan, so I'm continually surprised how much I enjoy the Buckaroos songs y'all post.

    I see nothing wrong with hearing this as rock.

    I don't disagree, but the guitar tones are pure Tele, and the groove has a different feel from the original, that to my ears has a bit more of a 60s-70s country vibe.

    I think those differences make it much more interesting than a spot-on remake.

    It's at the boundaries of honky tonk, but doesn't quite get to rock.

    The Band on the other hand covering this is pretty solid Rock.

    I love the Band's version.

    I can get with all of that. Country rock is still rock! Whatever we want to call it I’m in.

    I do too and I think this rocks at least as much. Genre distinction is kind of a loose thing sometimes. I like it whatever we call it.
