Title - Your Mother’s Prayer
Artist - Buck Owens And His Buckaroos
For those unaware, throughout Omnivore Recordings 12-year relationship with the Buck Owens Private Foundation, one request from the fans was clear and consistent—to make Bucks 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.
Starting August 6th, Omnivore will put out these 9 albums, offered as standalone reissues. Each drop will consist of three albums: Sweet Rosie Jones, I’ve Got You on My Mind Again and Tall Dark Stranger, then on August 27th, they will release Your Mother’s Prayer, The Kansas City Song and I Wouldn’t Live in New York City, and then finally come October 1st, they will put out In the Palm of Your Hand, Ain’t It Amazing, Gracie and (Its a) Monsters Holiday.
The albums will be released as they were originally issued and for the first time, appear in their original configuration on CD and Digital, mastered from the original analog tapes, and with expanded artwork & new liner notes.
Originally released in early 1970, Your Mother’s Prayer saw Buck and His Buckaroos returning to a musical genre they always loved — gospel.
Ten of the 11 songs were written, co-written or arranged by Owens and the release has become one of Buck’s most coveted albums.
Now, over four decades later, the classic album returns — mastered from the original analog tapes 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).

Opening on the gently twanging title track, Owens then slides easily into the comfy and cozy WAIT A LITTLE LONGER PLEASE, JESUS, the pert and perky THAT OLD TIME RELIGION and the sing-along of THE GREAT JUDGEMENT, before bringing us the wholesome IN GOD I TRUST.
Next up is the harmonious calling of the Lord within WHEN THE ROLL IS CALLED UP YONDER and the uptempo, banjo-imbued JESUS, JESUS, HOLD TO ME, which are in turn backed by the justified incantation of LONESOME VALLEY, the joyful vibe of THAT SUNDAY FEELING, with the album rounding out on the mid-tempo fiddle ballad MY SAVIOR LEADS THE WAY, closing on the pleasingly euphoric embrace of JUST A FEW MORE DAYS.
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!
