Rock 'n' roll legend Buddy Holly produced some of the most distinctive and influential music of his era. Three months after the release of The Chirping Crickets came this self-titled 1958 classic, Buddy's last album released prior to the plane crash in Iowa that struck him down in 1959 at age 22. What has Analogue Productions done to kick this classic album up a notch? For starters, our version features stellar remastering by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio from the original analog master tapes. Followed by state-of-the-art plating and pressing on 200-gram heavyweight vinyl at Quality Record Pressings, maker of the world's finest-sounding LPs. Stoughton Printing provides a sturdy old-style tip-on gatefold jacket with added photos to round out the package.
