Pioneer of rock 'n' roll in his solo album debut!
Rock 'n' roll legend Buddy Holly produced some of the most distinctive and
influential music of his era. Three months after the release of The Chirping
Crickets came this self-titled 1958 classic, Buddy's last album released prior
to the plane crash in Iowa that struck him down in 1959 at age 22.
Analogue Productions' version features stellar remastering by Kevin Gray at
Cohearent Audio from the original analog master tapes. Followed by
state-of-the-art plating and pressing on 200-gram heavyweight vinyl at Quality
Record Pressings, maker of the world's finest-sounding LPs. Stoughton Printing
provides a sturdy old-style tip-on gatefold jacket with added photos to round
out the package.
Born on Sept. 7, 1936 in Lubbock, Texas, Buddy Holly was well-versed in several
music styles and was a seasoned performer by age 16.
When Buddy Holly & the Crickets broke through nationally in 1957, they were
marketed by Decca Records as two different acts whose records were released on
two different Decca subsidiaries — Brunswick for Crickets records, Coral for
Holly records. But there was no real musical distinction between the two, except
perhaps that the "Crickets" sides had more prominent backup vocals.
This reissue marks the debut album credited to Buddy Holly. It features Holly's
Top Ten single "Peggy Sue" plus several songs that have turned out to be
standards: "I'm Gonna Love You Too," "Listen to Me," "Everyday," "Words of
Love," and "Rave On."
