Product Description

The tragic death of Buddy Holly, together with the Big Bopper and Richie Valens in a plane crash on 3 February 1958 came at a time Buddy s career was on the up. He had registered three Top Ten hits in his US homeland, including one chart topper in That ll Be The Day, whilst his two albums had been steady sellers even if they had failed to chart. It would have been scant compensation, but because Buddy recorded so prolifically during his short career, his record labels Coral and Brunswick were able to release new albums and singles for fully ten years after his death! The first album to hit the shops was the hastily compiled The Buddy Holly Story, which drew material from all three of his albums to date and was thus something of a greatest hits package. Ironically, it became the first of his albums to make the chart, peaking at number eleven in the US and selling over half a million copies. It similarly became his album chart debut in the UK, hitting number two and spending some three years on the chart as British fans tried to come to terms with his sudden demise. --This text refers to an alternate Audio CD edition.

Format: Audio CD
Please note this is NOT the soundtrack from the movie, this is the CD we have had to wait years and years for. In my opinion, this album now finally on CD is one of the main reasons Buddy Holly still sells 49 years after his death. The tracks on the CD are the originally released versions not the later overdubs. Every track transports us oldies back to our youth complete with the joy of hearing the tracks clearly and cleanly again so many years after having worn out the old vinyl record. A must buy for all fans and any person wondering about Buddy and his music. This is the Buddy of legend.

Let us hope and pray that "The Buddy Holly Story" Volume II will also be available in the very near future. Please please please give us Volume II

This was the first album I ever bought, aged 12, in 1962. I still have it and would never get rid of it. A Buddy Holly song would be one of my desert island discs (though which one? Almost impossible to choose). I know nearly every note of every song on this disc, and nearly 50 years has not diminished these great songs in any way. I love them all. I am hoping there will soon be a complete set of Buddy's recordings (I have a great Readers Digest set from the 70s). But if you want to hear the best of Buddy get this disc - forget the Ultimates and the Best Ofs - this is the one.

Format: Vinyl
THE BUDDY HOLLY STORY, IN A VINYL BOX SET BY WORLD RECORDS, WAS GROUNDBREAKING ON IT`S RELEASE. FIVE LP RECORDS, EACH CONTAINING 16 TRACKS (8 ON EACH SIDE), ARE ENTITLED AS FOLLOWS......THE STORY BEGINS, THE FIRST GREAT HITS, TRIUMPHS AND TRAGEDY, THE UNFORGOTTEN STAR, AND THE LEGEND LIVES ON. THERE IS A 32 PAGE BOOKLET WITH PHOTOS AND NEWSPAPER EXTRACTS, AND ON THE BACK OF EACH LP THERE IS AN EXCELLENT BIOGRAPHY BY MALCOLM JONES OF THE VARIOUS STAGES OF THE HOLLY LEGEND.
THESE ARE ORIGINAL STUDIO RECORDINGS WITH NO ALTERNATE TAKES, AND THE MAJOR HITS SUCH AS... OH BOY, THAT`LL BE THE DAY, PEGGY SUE, RAVE ON, TRUE LOVE WAYS, HEARTBEAT, PEGGY SUE GOT MARRIED, IT DOESN`T MATTER ANYMORE, AND OTHERS ARE ALL INCLUDED. ALSO FEATURED ARE HOLLY`S GREAT COVERS OF... READY TEDDY, BABY I DON`T CARE, RIP IT UP, SHAKE RATTLE AND ROLL, AND MANY LESS WELL KNOWN NUMBERS LIKE.. THAT`S MY DESIRE, LITTLE BABY, HOLLY HOP, AND OTHERS.
THE VINYL SOUND QUALITY IS EXCELLENT, AND IT SEEMS RIGHT AND APPROPRIATE TO BE HANDLING LPS OF BUDDY HOLLY, (COMPARED TO OTHER MODERN FORMATS). I DO REMEMBER THAT I COULD NOT AFFORD TO BUY LPS IN THE LATE FIFTIES, BUT I DID TRY TO BUY ALL OF BUDDY`S RELEASES IN 45s OR 78s (AND STILL HAVE THEM). THIS BOX SET DOES TAKE ME BACK TO THE 50`S ERA, AND THE HALCYON EARLY DAYS OF ROCK AND ROLL, WHICH I WAS PRIVILEGED TO EXPERIENCE AND LOVE. BUDDY HOLLY IS A GIANT OF THOSE TIMES, AND ALTHOUGH I HAVE MANY HOLLY CDS ETC. THIS BOX SET HAS A VERY SPECIAL PLACE IN MY COLLECTION.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
My reason for buying was to replace my vinyl original copy (which I haven't played in years) which I want to preserve. I have the songs on other CD collections but not the album itself on CD. Hearing the songs again in the order I remember them is great and the music is as fresh as ever - but I have been a Holly (and Crickets fan) since 'That'll Be The Day', so I could be biased! The bonus tracks are nice extras to have, but to me were not essential. My advice, buy it, if you're a Holly fan you'll like it, if you're not, you will be!
