Lubbock, Texas's most celebrated sons, Buddy Holly and his group, The Crickets, released this, their debut album way back in 1957. Though it's nearly 60 years old, the sounds are familiar to most everyone who has not been living under a rock. If you want only one taste of the pure and true brilliance of Buddy Holly, this record is it. It's track listing reads almost like a greatest hits album; "Oh Boy!, " "Not Fade Away, " "Maybe Baby, " and "That'll Be The Day" are all found on this LP. Buddy would be dead less than two years later, in that infamous plane crash of February 3, 1959, "The Day The Music Died, " but his music lives on, immortal. An essential American rock and roll staple on Rumble.
