AllMusic Review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Spanning three discs, The Buck Owens Collection is the most comprehensive compilation ever assembled on one of the founders of the Bakersfield sound. Although his earliest recordings aren't included, all of his greatest Capitol hits are present, as is his 1988 duet on "Streets of Bakersfield" with Dwight Yoakam and its followup single, "Hot Dog." The box is a necessary purchase, simply because it presents all of Owens' biggest hits in one place. There might not be many rarities on The Buck Owens Collection, but with an artist as consistent as he has been, all you need is the good stuff and it is all on this essential set.
