When Buddy Holly and his band the Crickets broke through in their native United States in 1957, they were marketed by Decca Records as separate acts: Brunswick for the Crickets and Coral for Buddy Holly.
Jerry Allison of the Crickets married Peggy Sue Gerron, the girl immortalized in song: Peggy Sue and Peggy Sue Got Married. Sonny Curtis is another Cricket who wrote More Than I Can Say (my favourite version is that by Bobby Vee). The Crickets later moved to Liberty label.
This Rave On: The Coral Story is a 2 CD set with 50 songs. The sound is quite clean with minimal hiss.Read more ›
The Holly and Burnette tracks contained herein should be in everyone's collection. If by some faint chance you've not heard them, a single listen to these tracks should convince you of their merits. Elsewhere, there are a number of forced / inorganic rockers in this set i.e. attempts to emulate the sort of sound being put out by the Bill Haley band, and comparison of these to tracks like Holly's "Rave On" or Burnette's "Lonesome Train" highlights the strengths of the latter.
There's a fair amount of teen pop present but it's tinged with early fifties easy listening. Indeed tracks like those from Teresa Brewer and Debbie Reynolds take us right across to undiluted easy listening. This is where personal taste comes very much into things. I'd confess to be happy not to hear "Sugar in the morning, sugar in the evening, sugar at suppertime" ever again - with deep apologies to the McGuire Sisters - but I'm only too well aware that no two people's musical tastes are identical. These tracks are certainly representative of what was charting at the time, and One Day have done a perfectly good job in reflecting that in this collection.Read more ›

Buddy Holly and The Crickets have always been magic, but I'm afraid that the Coral label didn't produce half as much classic material as it would have liked you to think!Published on 4 Jan. 2013 by Mr. Alfred A. Blackler
I have liked Coral records since I first heard Buddy Holly in 57 and enjoy all the other singers on that label. I wiil keep a look out for other similar cd's and buy themPublished on 15 Dec. 2012 by R. Cunningham
