Notes

Buried Country 1.5 is called '1.5' because it’s not all-new – if it was it would warrant the '2' suffix – but it is rather a remix, with about half the tracks from the 2000 original now joined by new songs that were released since.

The 2000 compilation was originally released in conjunction with a book and documentary of the same name.
