This new set of releases include Roy Clark's "Greatest Hits," Susan Raye's "Greatest Hits" and "The Very Best Of Buck Owens & Susan Raye." These titles have never been released on vinyl and are sure to fill -up our country heart with these well-known hits.

Beginning with Roy Clark's "Greatest Hits," we get fourteen of his most well-known solo tracks that cover his 40-year career in the music industry. Clark may also be best known as the co-host of the very popular television show "Hee Haw" and a frequent co-host for Johnny Carson on "The Tonight Show." This set includes his first top ten hit "Tips Of My Fingers," as well as the sweet ballads "Yesterday When I Was Young" and "Come Live With Me." Roy Clark also knew how to have fun, performing "The Lawrence Welk-Hee Haw Counter-Revolution Polka," as well as showcasing his skill on the guitar with the instrumental version of "Riders In The Sky." Roy Clark also brought a gospel sound to country music with "Heart To Heart," before this compilation closes with the light-hearted "Think Summer."

During the early seventies, famed country singer Buck Owens teamed up with then up-and-coming female country singer Susan Raye for a handful of successful albums. Another new release is this vinyl reissue set features fourteen tracks from their collaborations, beginning with a couple of their biggest hits "We're Gonna Get Together" and "Togetherness." Her beautiful voice is the perfect match to Owens' classic country twang when they come together for "The Great White Horse" and "Your Tender Loving Care." The two hit gold once again with the swinging tempo of "Looking Back To See" and "The Gold Old Days (Are Here Again)."

Susan Raye also had a very successful solo career with twenty Top 40 country hits, as sixteen of them are featured on the new vinyl reissue of her "Greatest Hits" set. It begins with her rendition of Jackie DeShannon's "Put A Little Love In Your Heart, before delivering her crossover pop hit "L.A. International Airport" from 1971. One of her highest country charting singles was the upbeat delivery of "(I've Got A) Happy Heart," as she continues to keep the the mood light with "Love Sure Feels Good In My Heart." Her voice is simply magical on songs like "Stop The World (And Let Me Get Off)" and "When You Sure Can See It From Here."
