“That’ll Be The Day” by Buddy Holly - album review

features in: Album Chart of 1958Album Chart of the Decade: 1950s

TJR says

Following a string of successful releases for Brunswick and Coral, Decca seized the opportunity to package up their old (and unsuccessful) Buddy Holly recordings from sessions recorded in Nashville in 1956, including the original take of “That’ll Be The Day”, the re-recorded ’57 version of which had been a major smash for The Crickets. I’m not too convinced by these performances, they often feel a bit contrived and drippy to me, although, hey, it’s Buddy Holly, they could never be terrible.
