One of Buck Owens' early champions - and the first person to function as his manager - was musician Terry Fell. Born in Dora, Alabama, Fell left home as a teenager and headed for California. He eventually started performing and recording in the Los Angeles area in the mid-1940s. He signed with the 4-Star label, before moving on to RCA's "X" imprint, where he scored a hit with Don't Drop It in 1954. It was the B-side, Truck Driving Man, that became a honky-tonk staple and was later adopted by Bill Woods as a theme song. Fell produced sessions for Buck in the summer of 1955 that were to be released on "X."
When the label folded, however, Fell was transferred to RCA proper, and Owens was dropped. The masters were picked up by Pep Records, for whom Buck soon recorded as Corky Jones. With Buck playing guitar, Terry recorded What's Good For the Goose in Bakersfield. It would be his last recording session for RCA. "They called me and said, 'Go ahead and do the session out there,'" Fell recalled years later. "'Do it where you want to, and use who you want to,' so I guess I went a little wild." Recorded at the Tally studio, the driving piano blues, accented with Buck's stabbing guitar licks, leaned further from Fell's country sensibilities than his typical fare.
He was 45 years old at the time, and RCA wasn't interested in his then-contemporary musical explorations. What's Good For The Goose wasn't released.
