Entertainment Reviews:

No Depression - p.62
"Bonnie surprises you with the in-your-face lies of 'Number One Heel,' and you can see the power she often brought to country classics during these years, and even more so, arguably, in the years beyond."
Record Collector (magazine) - p.90
5 stars out of 5 -- "[T]here is a fine body of solo work here....Bonnie Owens had the perfect voice for duets. You can hear it even when she is double-tracking herself."

This well-assembled four-CD box set compiles some of the best moments of the career of Bonnie Owens, the artist to be forever known as the woman who married (and divorced) both Buck Owens and Merle Haggard. The female voice of the Bakersfield sound and a true country music archetype, Owens provided a forthright counterpoint to the rollicking antics of the music's male stars with her performances of such songs as "Too Used to Being With You," "I Wish I Felt This Way at Home," and Haggard's "You Don't Have Very Far to Go."
