Album Review

This three-disc set from Music & Melody chronicles the legendary Buddy Holly's brief but truly impressive career. Holly wrote and released some of rock & roll’s most iconic songs, all of which popped out of the ether in a couple of years before his untimely death at the ripe old age of 22. This budget-priced European collection doesn’t miss a beat, boasting 55 album cuts, singles, and alternate takes, all of which make for essential listening.
