(It’s A) Monsters’ Holiday
Release date: October 1, 2021
Available on CD & Digital for the first time as originally issued in 1974.
Throughout Omnivore Recordings’ 12-year relationship with the Buck Owens Private Foundation, one request from the fans was clear and consistent—to make Buck’s late-’60s/early-’70s releases available again as stand-alone reissues. Omnivore is proud to answer that call and announce 9 titles to be released throughout the summer and fall of 2021. The albums will be released as they were originally issued and for the first time, appear in their original configuration on CD and Digital, remastered, and with expanded artwork and new liner notes.
1974 gave Buck Owens and His Buckaroos their 23rd top 10 country album with (It’s A) Monster’s Holiday. The title track would peak at #6 on the singles chart, and it features “On The Cover Of The Music City News,” a re-write of Shel Silverstein’s “Cover Of The Rolling Stone,” adapted by Owens and Jim Shaw.
Now, nearly four decades later, the classic album returns—remastered by Grammy®-winner Michael Graves, Produced for release by Grammy®-winner Cheryl Pawelski, and featuring expanded artwork including new liner notes from author Randy Poe (Buck ‘Em! The Autobiography Of Buck Owens).
Available for the first time since its original album release and for the first time on stand-alone CD and Digital formats. The reissue of these latter-day Buck Owens And His Buckaroos albums is a cause for celebration!
