64 years ago today, Buddy Holly recorded That'll be the Day with The Crickets in Norman Petty's studio - infinitely better than the original Decca version. It has surely stood the test of time!!

Completely agree, Bonz. I can remember the first time I heard it - I was 10 and my auntie took me to the funfair which came to the rough ground down the street from my gran’s. They played in on the Gallopers, and my life was changed forever.

I was still singing it with the R&R band I played with from the mid-‘90s until 2005-ish.

I he'll never last' (musically, of course) bought the 78 some time in 57/58- my mum listened to it & said 'he'll never last' (musically of course.
Well BH lasted a long time, and I'm still a fan, but I'm not sure he means much to today's generation.....

Big loud speakers at a funfair,
.. still the ideal way to hear real rock and roll..


Fortunately a showman who ran rides at a fair,
which occasionally visited our part of Scrumpyshire,
upheld that great tradition...

Fingers crossed covid has not permanently killed off funfair rock and roll...

Wikipedia says "That'll Be the Day" was written by Buddy Holly and Jerry Allison. It was first recorded by Buddy Holly and the Three Tunes for Decca in 1956, but Decca did not release that recording. It was re-recorded on February 25, 1957 by Buddy Holly and his new band, The Crickets. And it gets even more convoluted and confusing. Read the Wikipedia article. It's an interesting insight into the music industry.

The 78 recording of this classic song I bought in England in 1957 or 8? was on the Coral label.
   I don't have it any more but I have a feeling it was labelled as by 'The Crickets' with no mention of BH, although he was the singer & certainly WAS billed on 'Peggy Sue' & the rest.

- it's a long time ago, is my memory playing tricks?

Someone sang 'When I'm 64'
Used to think that was old.

You are right Jim. It was the Crickets only and I had it as well and along with many others over the years it got broken...shellac! However Lonnie Donegan 78's on vinyl survived and quite a few others that I really looked after

I saw Jimi Hendrix live, there was no programme you paid your money and you experienced, probably a bit wild compared to Buddy and his Cricket,Jimi was certainly bowling the maidens over

'funfair rock and roll... ' is yet another memory. Waltzer cars spinning while guys hang over the back to take the money. Long time since I did that but you're right about the showground amps and speakers. Todays music lovers I guess would rather download a track and listen on the ubiquitous smartphone.

A serious question Bonzo, why did you post this after 64 years. It seems a strange anniversary to celebrate. 25, 40, 50, 75 or even 65 years would normally be the accepted milestones.

Send me a postcard, drop me a line, if you're still alive.
Will you still need me, will you still feed me, when I'm sixty-five?

Had Bonzo chosen to post about the Beatles song "When I'm Sixty Four" that would have been understandable.

PS Henryp your "poetry" is appalling !! ;-) Don't give up your day job!!

Nothing wrong with it.
It rhymes AND it SCANS, which is more than can be said of many a poem posted on Mudcat.
