BUDDY HOLLY 1957 : THE COMPLETE RECORDINGS : Not Fade Away

THE COMPLETE 1957 RECORDINGS.
3 CD SET, 8 PAGE BOOKLET, FULL '57 DISCOGRAPHY 1957: The breakthrough year After having served his apprenticeship on local West Texas radio in the early 1950s, Buddy Holly spent a year as a solo artist with the unsympathetic Nashville arm of mighty US Decca in 1956 (see El Toro ETCD 1012) which not only proved disastrous commercially, but also denied him the artistic freedom which he desired in order to carve his own niche in popular music. Having learned a valuable lesson in Owen Bradley's clock-watched studio, in early 1957 Buddy Holly formed his own group, The Crickets, and began utilising the well-equipped recording facility belonging to Norman Petty in Clovis, to produce finished masters for the Brunswick and Coral labels, which would include influential rock 'n' roll classics such as "That'll Be The Day", "Peggy Sue", "Not Fade Away", "Oh Boy!" and "Maybe Baby" - all of which can be found on this entertaining and important compilation. Like Eddie Cochran in California, Buddy Holly enjoyed being a creative musician perhaps more than being a famous recording star, and much of his short life was spent in the recording studio not only rehearsing and recording his own tracks, but also providing accompaniment to the stream of vocalists that stepped through the sound-proofed doors. This three CD set (90 tracks!!) Provides a distillation of the high-points of the annus mirabilis which was 1957, featuring the complete recordings marketed as both The Crickets and as Buddy Holly - as well as a wealth of tracks on which Buddy, J.I. and Joe B. backed those other country, pop and rock 'n' roll singers, along with the soundtracks from TV shows, on-air interviews and amusingly-tailored promo jingles to massage the egos of various music industry figures. These were the recordings that made Buddy Holly and The Crickets national, and indeed international, stars. Things would never be the same again...
