Buddy Holly- S/T LP. Pioneer of rock 'n' roll in his solo album debut is finally reissued and remastered for this release! 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 S/T 1958 classic. Born on Sept. 7, 1936 in Lubbock, Texas, Buddy Holly was well-versed in several music styles and was a seasoned performer by the age of 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 and Coral for Holly records. But there was no real musical distinction between the two, except perhaps that the Crickets had more prominent backup vocals. This reissue marks the debut album credited to just Buddy Holly and features Holly's Top Ten single "Peggy Sue" plus several songs that have turned out to be Buddy Holly standards including "I'm Gonna Love You Too," "Listen To Me," "Everyday," "Baby I Don't Care," and "Rave On." Import from Italy.
