Missed this one...

I don't really dig too deeply into the 50's pioneers as far as collecting, but I always have the utmost respect for them and what they contributed to rock and roll.

He died the year I was born, such a waste he was only getting started.

This is my favourite Buddy song. I'm starting to become more of a fan that I used to be of him.

Buddy Holly 20th Century Classics



1. That'll Be The Day
2. Words Of Love
3. Peggy Sue
4. Everyday
5. Not Fade Away
6. Maybe Baby
7. Oh Boy!
8. It's So Easy
9. Rave On
10. True Love Ways
11. Think It Over
12. It Doesn't Matter Any More

Normally I try to avoid the greatest hits albums but this truly is Holly`s best work!
These songs were remastered and compiled on one disk in 1999, so it sounds so clear and clean that you would almost think that Buddy is still with us! Timeless Classic! 8/10



And just for grins...I found this picture while doing a search on Holly!

The Crickets and their new Brit bikes; Joe B. Mauldin on this Thunderbird, Jerry Allison on his TR6A Trophy, Holly on his Cyclone. Photographed outside a Dallas Texas dealership May 1958.

Has anyone heard that previously unrealesed song ideas recording? I heard about it a couple years ago on npr but still have yet to hear anything other than the few minutes they played on the radio. Even though it was just him and a guitar it sounded really cool.

Wow, how could I miss this? Buddy Holly is one of my other true loves.

"True Love Ways"



"Early in the Morning"
(Such a voice on this man, seriously.)



"You're So Square (Baby, I Don't Care)"

I wonder why I love you, baby. I guess it's just because you're so square.



"Ready Teddy"



How can a rock lover not fall in love with Buddy Holly? He was such a badass in his day.
