REVIEW: Buddy Holly and The Crickets made some of the greatest Rock & Roll records of all time. It’s a remarkable fact that such classics as “That’ll Be The Day”, “Peggy Sue”, “Oh Boy”, “Maybe Baby”, “Rave On” and “Think It Over” were all recorded in a little less than twelve months during 1957-1958. Everything about these tracks is so perfect: The fabulous songs which completely capture the spirit of Rock & Roll, Buddy’s outstanding vocals and guitar playing, Jerry Allison’s subtle, unique drumming, Joe Mauldin’s subtle keeping time on slap bass. The wonderfully atmospheric backing vocals by Gary & Ramona Tollett, The Picks or The Roses…and Norman Petty’s production, arguably at that moment in time, Petty, whose studio was in Clovis, New Mexico, was the greatest record producer in the world. Buddy died in a plane crash on 3rd February along with The Big Bopper and Ritchie Valens near Clear Lake, Iowa whilst travelling to the next leg of a concert tour.
