AllMusic Review by

The Very Best of Buck Owens, Vol. 1 contains a great deal of Buck's most essential songs, including "Under Your Spell Again," "Act Naturally," "I've Got a Tiger by the Tail," and "Waitin' in Your Welfare Line." The set runs from 1959 to 1971, picking up a good cross-section of his biggest hits along the way. The compilation is a perfect introduction and what songs it doesn't cover are readily available on The Very Best of Buck Owens, Vol. 2. Of course, listeners who want the most comprehensive set available should invest in the triple-disc box set The Buck Owens Collection.
