Full Title - Together Again/My Heart Skips A Beat. Named after his double-sided number one hit single of early 1964, 'Together Again/My Heart Skips A Beat' is one of Buck Owens' strongest albums of the '60s, as well as one of his few records to stick firmly in the honky tonk camp. Now Sundazed brings you this reissue with 2 bonus tracks 'Love's Gonna Live Here' and 'Act Naturally', both of which were originally released by Capitol as singles. 1995.

"If CD's wore like records, my copy of this one would have lots of crackles, pops and skips by now. To this day, Buck Owens' contribution to country music has been under-rated, notwithstanding the credit he justly receives for the "Bakersfield" sound. In fact, it could be argued that Buck ruled the roost of country music in the 60's.For certain, you won't hear anything resembling these cuts on today's so-called "country" radio stations. While any of the Buckaroos material is great listening, this one is my favorite and every cut is strong. Twangy Telecasters and sweet pedal steel make for that classic Buckaroo sound.If you like old-style country and don't have this CD, get it, particularly if you're not familiar with Buck or can only envision him as a side-kick on "Hee-Haw".In my book, Buck is right up there with Hag and George Jones, and there is no better Buck CD than this one. Highly Recommended!"
Where today's country came from

"If you want to see where today's country came from, this is required listening. But listening to this CD is not simply an academic exercise. It is also enjoyable to listen to, even today. It is amazing how much influence on music Buck has had. "Act Naturally" and "Save the Last Dance For Me" were covered by other groups and who can forget his harmonies. Many of these tunes hit the charts when they were new.If you only know Buck from his goofy skits on Hee-Haw you owe it to yourself to listen to these tunes."

"When I first bought this one I didn't take it out of the player for two weeks. Even if you don't like what passes for country music nowadays you should give Owens a chance. I challenge anyone not to sing along with Truck Drivin' Man, Act Naturally, or Storm of Love. There really isn't a weak song on it though I think these are the standouts."
