UK issue of one of the most important recordings of the
last 60 years. Both sides are pure rockabilly and would
have fallen on deaf ears in the UK, when it was released
in 1956. It's fair to say that once Peggy Sue and
That'll Be The Day had great success in '57 people who
liked these two may have noticed this in a catalogue and
tried to order it. Of the Holly fans I've spoken to over
the years, this was generally the case, and several
attempts would sometimes have to be made to find a copy,
with one guy waiting till 1961 to find one. How many
were pressed is anyone's guess, but UK Decca (who
pressed the Brunswick label) were contractually
obliged to press a quantity as part of a deal for the
rights to Bing Crosby, etc who were huge sellers for
them. It certainly happened with a whole host of other
artists that U.S. labels were keen to push. An initial
batch would be pressed and samples sent to America to
prove the record was out. Promotion was rarely carried
out, and great records fell by the wayside. This is a
great copy, and I've put full recordings of both sides
on the player, so you can check out it's sound.
a listen to the clips below. Exactly as recorded with
no bass, treble etc added, and no enhancing whatsoever.
Don't forget to turn the volume on the player up.
