5 STARS ALL MUSIC GUIDE
 
One of rock & roll’s finest and most joyful pioneers, the legendary Buddy Holly (who died tragically in a plane crash at the tender age of 22) left an impression as deep as if he had been in the business for decades. His enthusiastic and energetic “rockabilly hiccup”, boy-lovesgirl style put his indelible stamp on the music destined to be America’s — and much of the world’s — favorite genre. Holly’s trademark “chord lead” brand of rhythmic guitar playing can be heard in virtually every rock & roll band, and his music was a major influence for such rock legends as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, Lou Reed and Elvis Costello. This definitive and remastered collector’s edition contains Buddy Holly’s most famous and essential albums, consisting of his debut LP The “Chirping” Crickets (1957) and the selftitled Buddy Holly (1958). These two masterpieces helped define the exact nature of rock & roll. In addition, we have included 11 outstanding bonus tracks.
