Buddy Holly was one of the greatest, most inventive artists in the first wave of Rock & Roll, which The Buddy Holly COLLECTED certainly illustrates. The selection shows his wild-man Rockabilly ways as well as his sensitive songwriting.


Although his success lasted only a year and a half before his death in an airplane crash, Holly is described by critic Bruce Eder as "the single most influential creative force in early rock and roll." The Buddy Holly Collected triple album stands as a great retrospective of the legendary artist.


Though it contains all the big hits, "That'll Be the Day", "Not Fade Away", and "Peggy Sue", this collection encompasses much more, delving deeper into Holly's body of work. An absolutely necessity for anybody who loves American music of the 20th century.


His works and innovations inspired and influenced contemporary and later musicians, notably the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, and Elvis Costello, and exerted a profound influence on popular music.
