Buddy Holly (1958)

Buddy Holly is Buddy Holly's second album, released in February 1958. Approximately one year later, Holly was killed in a plane crash. It contains one of Holly's best known songs, "Peggy Sue". Some re-releases contain the tracks from Holly's next single; "Early In the Morning" b/w "Now We're One" as well as the B-side to his Rave On! single, "Take Your Time".

In 1959 The Crickets` recorded a tribute to Buddy written by member Sonny Curtis, "(I Love You) More Than I Can Say". It was later a charted hit for Bobby Vee in 1961 (#61) and Leo Sayer in 1980 (#02).


The Beatles took their name in tribute to Buddy Holly and the Crickets. John Lennon and Paul MacCartney were both inspired to write their own songs after learning that Holly wrote (or co-wrote) many of his own songs. In the period of 1958 to 1960, the band had been using many different names, most prominently The Quarrymen (after the school they attended) and Johnny and the Moondogs. According to some stories, it was Stuart Sutcliffe (the famed "5th Beatle") who suggested the name "The Beetles" and that John changed the spelling to give the name a double meaning.
