The press release from Omnivore's publicist, Cary Baker of Conqueroo, states, “This is an incredible opportunity to own a piece of country music history direct from the collection of the artist! (Please note, because these are sealed, vintage stock, and anomalies may exist, there will be no returns nor replacements.)

“Also on May 31, Omnivore Recordings, in conjunction with the Buck Owens Estate, will release Buck Owens and the Buckaroos' The Complete Capitol Singles: 1971-1975, available on CD and digital.

“The set is the third and final volume in a series chronicling every one of Buck's historic Capitol singles from the 50s, 60s, and 70s. Taken from the original stereo masters, The Complete Capitol Singles: 1971-1975 collects the A- and B-side to all 21 singles from that period, including nine Top Ten hits, in their original, chronological form.”
