"Buddy Holly"

Apart from this CD being from one of the greatest 50's performers of all time who tragically past on way before his time along with other stars whoose talents like Buddy's were not at that time totally released as had he had the chance then record sales would have boomed.

He was a household name and to many even in 2005 remains one of the most reknown artists of this genre of music.
When you listen to this CD it makes you think back to the era when playing your guitar in a friends garage was what it was all about and you can picture when you close your eyes being there accross the road watching and listening to the raw beat and riffs(guitar solos) as they were performed with out any enhancing like you get with todays music.

This CD has his most well known hits and songs on and is perfect for those relaxing evenings at home or travelling in your car, or when you are on the bus going to work etc, though be careful as do to the content you will end up singing out loud to everyone around you.

This collection of songs is everything everybody remembers of Buddy Holly, Classics like Oh Boy, Peggy Sue, Rave On , Not Fade Away etc you can almost imagine how much heart this artist put into these songs because the tone words just go hand in hand with each other. Buddy Holly will always be heard and played world wide due to the effect his music has on us. This is a must for any devoted or new Buddy Holly fan of any age.
Also this is excellent summer time tunes if your young and do not know who Buddy Holly is just ask mum and dad for their record you will be hooked.
Here is the complete playlist for all:-

1. Peggy Sue
2. That'll Be The Day
3. Listen To Me
4. Everyday
5. Oh Boy
6. Not Fade Away
7. Rainning In My Heart
8. Brown Eyed Hansome Man
9. Maybe Baby
10. Rave On
11. Think It Over
12. Its So Easy
13. It Doesn't Mater Anymore
14. True Love Ways
15. Peggy Sue Got Married
16. Bo Diddley

As i said when you go through this list they're all there the fast and the slow.Excellent.
