Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All time No. 420, plus Buddy in his solo album debut! Two albums on one Hybrid Mono SACD! Country, rockabillly and R&B fused into epochal rock 'n' roll. Remastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio from the original analog master tapes!

This is a musical duo to be reckoned with. For this Hybrid SACD we've included two of the greatest albums in the Buddy Holly canon for a can't-miss package for rock 'n' roll history buffs and music fans of all stripes.

One of rock's greatest albums is the debut album by the Crickets and the only one featuring Buddy Holly released during his lifetime. The Chirping Crickets contains the group's number one single "That'll Be the Day" and its Top Ten hit "Oh, Boy!." Other Crickets classics include "Not Fade Away," "Maybe Baby," and "I'm Looking for Someone to Love."

Three months after the release of The Chirping Crickets came the self-titled 1958 classic. It was Buddy's last album released prior to the plane crash in Iowa that struck him down in 1959 at age 22. The album Buddy Holly features the Top Ten smash "Peggy Sue" plus several songs that went on to be standards: "I'm Gonna Love You Too," "Listen To Me," "Everyday," "Words of Love," and "Rave On."

These are among the best rock 'n' roll songs of the 1950s or ever, making this SACD a collectible of truly historic and memorable tunes — "ranking with Elvis Presley and Meet the Beatles," writes AllMusic.

What has Analogue Productions done to kick these classic albums up a notch? For starters, our version features stellar remastering by Keving Gray at Cohearent Audio. Gray transferred the high-res digital files used for this Hybrid SACD release to DSD, and Gus Skinas prepared the disc masters at the Super Audio Center in Boulder, Colo.

Born Charles Hardin Holley on September 7, 1936, in Lubbock, Texas, Holly was nicknamed "Buddy" by his mother. She felt that his given name was too big for her little boy. "Holly," the altered form of his last name, would later result from a misspelling in his first recording contract. Holly learned to play piano and fiddle at an early age, while his older brothers taught him the basics of guitar.

In early 1956, Holly and his band began recording demos and singles in Nashville under the name Buddy Holly and the Three Tunes, but the group's lineup was later revised and dubbed The Crickets. Holly wrote and recorded his breakthrough hit, "That'll Be the Day," with The Crickets in 1957. The song's title and refrain are a reference to a line uttered by John Wayne in the 1956 film "The Searchers." Between August 1957 and August 1958, Holly and the Crickets charted seven different Top 40 singles.

Composer and singer John Fogerty, of Creedence Clearwater Revival fame, inducted Buddy Holly into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame at the 1986 Hall of Fame induction ceremony. What Buddy Holly meant to him, Fogerty said, was destiny calling. Fogerty, 12, bought "That'll Be The Day" and soon began dreaming of forming his own combo, like the group of musicians — The Crickets — he saw on the album cover. And in Liverpool, England, "the same thing was going on with four other guys. They named their group The Beatles, because Buddy Holly's group was called The Crickets.

"We are, each of us, made up of the people we love and the people we admire," Fogerty, said. "We take those reflections, and hopefully, grow."

Holly's talented life was cut short in a plane crash on Feb. 3, 1959, that also claimed the lives of Ritchie Valens and J.P. "The Big Bopper" Richardson. This SACD is a tribute to what was, and what might have been a lengthy pioneering musical career.

The "Chirping Crickets" (1957):

The debut album by the Crickets and the only one featuring Buddy Holly released during his lifetime, The "Chirping" Crickets contains the group's number one single "That'll Be the Day" and its Top Ten hit "Oh, Boy!." Other Crickets classics include "Not Fade Away," "Maybe Baby," and "I'm Looking for Someone to Love." The rest of the 12 tracks are not up to the standard set by those five, but those five are among the best rock & roll songs of the 1950s or ever, making this one of the most significant album debuts in rock & roll history, ranking with Elvis Presley and Meet the Beatles.

Review by William Ruhlmann, Allmusic.com

Buddy Holly (1958):

When Buddy Holly & the Crickets broke through nationally in 1957, they were marketed by Decca Records as two different acts whose records were released on two different Decca subsidiaries – Brunswick for Crickets records, Coral for Holly records. But there was no real musical distinction between the two, except perhaps that the "Crickets" sides had more prominent backup vocals. Nevertheless, coming three months after The "Chirping" Crickets, this was the debut album credited to Buddy Holly. It featured Holly's Top Ten single "Peggy Sue" plus several songs that have turned out to be standards: "I'm Gonna Love You Too," "Listen to Me," "Everyday," "Words of Love," and "Rave On." The rest of the 12 tracks weren't as distinctive, though Holly's takes on such rock & roll hits as "Ready Teddy" and "You're So Square (Baby I Don't Care)" provide an interesting contrast with the more familiar versions by Elvis Presley. This was the final new album featuring Holly to be released during his lifetime. Every subsequent album was an archival or posthumous collection.
