This is an interesting collection, because it looks like the first time anyone has found a legal way of selling "Buddy Holly and the Picks" tracks without actually mentioning The Picks.

I haven't actually heard the album, but here's my theory: this disc is widely sold by all the usual suspects; BestBuy, Amazon etc; that suggests it is not a bootleg. But it has none of the usual licensing blurb (MCA / Universal, who own the copyright on the back catalogue). What it does say is:

Licensed by Play 24-7 Limited. This compilation (p) 2012 Play 24/7 Ltd, © Play 24/7 Ltd. All single artist tracks are by the original artist but may be re-recorded tracks. Featuring groups may be re-recorded and may not include all of the original group members.

Which, of course, covers a multitude of sins. The album features the weirdest photo I have ever seen of Buddy Holly (and I've seen a few). It appears to have been produced by someone who got photoshop for Christmas, but lost the instructions.

However, further research (by John Mathewson's daughter), has solved that mystery.
