Owens -- who is most notable as a lead vocalist -- is highlighted on this release as one heck of an underrated instrumentalist.

Owens played the club nearly every Friday and Saturday night, but he hadn't been feeling up to it, and was headed for the car to go home...

 I've Got a Tiger by the Tail: Reviews, Discography, Audio Clips, and more ||| Music.com
Buck Owens had his share of country hits prior to the release of I've Got a Tiger by the Tail and the hit single that spawned it.
But "I've Got a Tiger by the Tail" was Owens' national breakthrough, featuring everything right about his Bakersfield honky tonk sound sweated down to a 2:12 single that proved to be a irresistible piece of crossover magic to non-country fans without diluting his basic sound one iota.
This 14-track CD reissue brings together the original Capitol tracks from that album (which also included the hit "Cryin' Time," later to be a crossover hit of its own when recorded by Ray Charles), along with two bonus tracks.
