Buddy Holly was a true original, bringing a nerd chic and Texan drawl to the early rock ‘n’ roll movement that set him apart from fellow greaser contemporaries. His time in the limelight tragically only lasted for a year and a half as Buddy was to lose his life in a plane crash and because of this only three full studio albums were produced, two of which we have included here. Disc 1 includes Holly’s eponymous debut which includes the hits ‘Peggy Sue’, ‘Words Of Love’, ‘Everyday’ and ‘Rave On’. Other highlights include ‘Heartbeat’ and ‘Real Wild Child’ as bonus tracks. Disc 2 features the album Buddy Holly And The Chirpin Crickets which includes the hit ‘That’ll Be The Day’ and it was this album that would prove to be a prototype for so many bands to follow, (most notably the Beatles).
