In depth analysis by Grammy-nominated Bakersfield Sound historian Scott B. Bomar.

Foreword by Foo Fighters guitarist Chris Shiflett.

Buck Owens and Merle Haggard emerged from the dim lights, thick smoke and loud, loud music of Bakersfield, California's thriving honky-tonk scene of the 1950s and '60s and changed country music forever. But what is the ''Bakersfield Sound?'' While twanging Telecasters and crying steel guitars come to mind, the music that emanated from Central California in that era reflected a variety of influences that was expressed in myriad ways.

''We represent the end results of all the years of country music in this town,'' Haggard once remarked about the California city that served as home base for the two Country Music Hall of Fame inductees. But how did the musical world from which Buck and Merle emerged come to be? How were the twin pillars of the Bakersfield Sound shaped by the city's larger musical community? Who were their influences, and what were the musical markers along their paths to success? In what ways did their achievements reshape the local scene from which they emerged?

3.0 out of 5 stars Buyer Beware: Many Merle Haggard Songs are Now Gone!
Reviewed in the United States on 18 January 2020
If you read the note inside this otherwise lavish box set, you will feel my pain and anger over these last-minute Merle Haggard deletions! It states, "Due to a legal claim that was received just prior·to the release date, twelve songs have been removed from this collection." WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT.
