“The “Chirping” Crickets” by The Crickets - album review

TJR says

Stellar debut from the Texan quartet led by Buddy Holly, issued in November 1957. At this stage The Crickets were lead guitarist and vocalist Buddy Holly, drummer Jerry Allison, bassist Joe Mauldin, and rhythm guitarist Niki Sullivan. Who can resist Niki Sullivan’s Rock n Roll onslaught on “Oh Boy” or Jerry Allison’s card-box percussion on “Not Fade Away” or Buddy Holly’s vocal acrobatics on “That’ll Be The Day”? 10 tracks were written in house whilst 2 were covers – “It’s Too Late” (Chuck Willis, 1956) and “Send Me Some Lovin’” (Little Richard and his band, 1957).
