Original Album Liner Notes:
This is a dream come true… a fairy-tale album filled with high mountains, shining knights, a maiden whose long, soft hair blows in the wind, sunny days, a castle and the seven seas.
It was The Great White Horse that made this an album come true… a totally romantic, tender and loving album come true. And it was Buck Owens who created the song “The Great White Horse.” And on the day he wrote it, Buck surely must have been touched with magic, for the song is one of the loveliest, most beautiful ever written. He sings it here with Susan Raye, one of the loveliest, most beautiful and most talented girls ever created. Listen. Their voices blend perfectly and give such beauty to “The Great White Horse” that is likely to become one of country music’s most treasured ballads.
There are more Buck and Susan duets here… all pretty enough to fill Cinderella’s slipper. Together, they sing Buck’s unforgettable “Your Tender Loving Care”; young Buddy Alan’s “I’ve Never Had A Dream Come True Before”; Merle Haggard’s composition “Today I Started Loving You Again,” already a classic, and “Tennessee Bird Walk,” brimming over with fun.
Once you listen to them all, you’ll decide for yourself that the songs are like pots of gold at the end of the rainbow. To find them, follow The Great White Horse along with Buck and Susan.
