The Very Best of Buck Owens, Vol. 2 contains all the essential Owens songs the first volume didn't cover, including "Above and Beyond," "Love's Gonna Live Here," "My Heart Skips a Beat," "Cryin' Time," "Buckaroo," and "Big in Vegas." Like its predecessor, the collection spans from 1959 to 1971, and features an excellent cross-section of his biggest hits along the way. Not only is it a perfect supplement to The Very Best of Buck Owens, Vol. 1, the compilation works as a good introduction, even though the first collection is a better choice for a new fan. Of course, listeners who want the most comprehensive set available should invest in the triple-disc box set, The Buck Owens Collection.
