Hollybilly : Buddy Holly 1958 - The Complete Recordings (2-CD)
Buddy Holly has come to be known as one of the foremost performers and innovators of the first wave of Rock 'n' Roll, even though his actual recording career lasted less than three years before being cut short by his death in an horrific plane crash.
Hollybilly is a double CD collection which features the complete 1956 recordings of Buddy Holly, his first as a solo artist, and includes all the surviving masters from his three Nashville sessions for US Decca.
There is also his first demo sessions cut at Norman Petty's state-of-the-art recording studio in Clovis, New Mexico, and home recordings from Lubbock too.
In addition to Buddy and his usual cohorts such as Jerry Allison, Sonny Curtis and Don Guess, the tracks also include the accompaniment of the famed Nashville "A Team" boasting Floyd Cramer, Harold Bradley and the superb Grady Martin.
