Country, rockabillly and R&B fused into epochal rock 'n' roll
Remastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio from the original analog master tapes!
This is a musical duo to be reckoned with. For this Hybrid SACD we've included two of the greatest albums in the Buddy Holly canon for a can't-miss package for rock 'n' roll history buffs and music fans of all stripes.
One of rock's greatest albums is the debut album by the Crickets and the only one featuring Buddy Holly released during his lifetime. The Chirping Crickets contains the group's number one single "That'll Be the Day" and its Top Ten hit "Oh, Boy!." Other Crickets classics include "Not Fade Away," "Maybe Baby," and "I'm Looking for Someone to Love."
Three months after the release of The Chirping Crickets came the self-titled 1958 classic. It was Buddy's last album released prior to the plane crash in Iowa that struck him down in 1959 at age 22. The album Buddy Holly features the Top Ten smash "Peggy Sue" plus several songs that went on to be standards: "I'm Gonna Love You Too," "Listen To Me," "Everyday," "Words of Love," and "Rave On."
These are among the best rock 'n' roll songs of the 1950s or ever, making this SACD a collectible of truly historic and memorable tunes — "ranking with Elvis Presley and Meet the Beatles," writes AllMusic.
