Finally, 50 years and ten months late they have realeased the complete Buddy Holly recordings in one place and digitally remastered. See this Guardian review:
http://www.guardian.co.uk/music/2009/dec/03/buddy-holly-not-fade-away-review

Of course, most of us Holly Heads have obtained them by fair means or foul over the years but it always irked me to have to buy an album in order to get one or two tracks that were mixed up in the mishmash of patchy releases that have come out over the years. And, yes, I have bought bootlegs because the stuff was simply not available any other way.

Anyway, now it is

This is good news. His voice was two important to lose, in the history of 20th C. music.

Well, that's my Xmas (self) pressie sorted!

The review is very good, as I always expect from Richard Williams. The emphasis on the New York apartment tapes (and the extras from these) is justified.

I really wish that something had come out of BH's desire to work with Ray Charles. Was never to be.......

All I want now are the Carolyn Hester recordings with BH on guitar.

How much is this box set retailing for?

Some recordings with Carolyn Hester were released last year on yet another BH compilation called "1957, The complete Recordings". There are just two tracks:
Scarlet Ribbons and The Wreck of the Old 97

£60 on UK amazon for the box set. I bought a bootleg of the apartment tapes + Hansen and Petty overdubs a few years ago from eBay - perfect CD quality for £3 including postage.

Locking hut 327 were you?

I was in my bed, second from the toilets door. Number 128. Boarding School (Oprhanage actually). Strictly against rules, listening with headphones to Radio Luxemberg on a Sunday night if my memory serves me well. Might even have been a Jimmy Saville prog (As it happens).

Aha, Les but can you remember what was advertised from Keynsham?

Certainly - the Horace Batchelor Infra-Draw Method.

I also remember Garner Ted Arnstrong's 'The World Tomorrow' (immortalised in the Bonzo's Intro and the Outro).

And how was Keynsham spelled?

"That's K-E-Y-N-S-H-A-M...."

I just hope that when / if the day comes around when I can't remember what I had for that morning's breakfast, and I'm sitting there waiting to be changed, that the songs filling my head will be Buddy Holly's.

Sadly, I'll probably be sitting there singing "Bumpity bumpity bumpity bump, here comes the galloping major".

hi leadfingers

Hey I was at Locking too....but a couple of years earlier. I can't be as specific as you as to my EXCACT location there. Probably this was due the regular amounts of " draught scrumpy" we supped in Churchill.

The day Buddy died I was still in the RAF up in Inverness.

......not fade away

Cheers

Mike
