Buddy Holly - The Music Never Died

Music Never Died

"Of all the pioneers who helped cultivate the roots of rock & roll music, few - if any - had brought so much to the cause in such an incredibly short period of time as the late Buddy Holly. Yet unlike Chuck Berry, Elvis, Little Richard or any of the others who, for the most part, have been well represented over the years on both records and CDs as well as on home video, very little has been made available where Holly's contributions are concerned. With many of his rarities once obtainable on vinyl but never on CD, and nothing new culled from the vaults for over 20 years, the time is long overdue for fans of this muscial legend to get what they truly deserve.

And this collection promises to do just that, with a 41-track CD containing wellover an hour's worth of previously unreleased material bu Holly including his earliest known recording, alternate versions, spoken-word radiop promos, jingles, incredible interviews, guest appearances with other artists (including several never-heard Waylon Jennings songs) and, finally, his most sought-after recording ever: the infamous "Decca Records Phone Call"!

Also included is a DVD featuring Holly and the Crickets' never-before-available complete performance of "Oh Boy!" from their second appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show, plus other video rarities.

And complementing all this is an exclusive 40-page booklet which not only provides in-depth, track-by-track annotations for both discs, but also provides more than 120 amazing photos that have never been published or circulated anywhere before!

This limited-edition collectors' item is topped off with a tri-fold poster of the group in a never-seen performance shot that defies description.

Prism Records is proud to present this brand-new chapter in the timeless musical legacy that was left to us by the one-and-only Buddy Holly, one that we know you'll be enjoying for years to come!"
