Buddy Holly Collected on Limited Edition 180g Import 3LP
Buddy Holly was without a doubt one of the greatest, most inventive artists in the first wave of rock & roll, which Collected certainly illustrates. The 57-track selection ranges from his wild-man rockabilly beginnings through to his sensitive singer/songwriter material. Although his career was cut short at the young age of 22 by a tragic airplane crash, Holly has been described by many including music critic Bruce Eder as "the single most influential creative force in early rock and roll."
Pressed across three 180g LPs, Buddy Holly Collected stands as the most comprehensive and greatest retrospective of the legendary artist. Though it certainly contains all of his most beloved hits like "That'll Be the Day," "Not Fade Away" and "Peggy Sue," the set encompasses much more, delving deeper into Holly's groundbreaking body of work.
An absolute necessity for anybody who loves American music of the 20th century, Buddy Holly's works and innovations inspired and influenced many contemporary musicians, notably the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, and Elvis Costello, and exerted a profound influence on popular music in general that is still felt to this very day!
