Rave On Buddy Holly
CD ($11.99)

Holly, who died at the tragically young age of 22 in 1959, would have been 75 in September—and he certainly would have enjoyed hearing this boundary-crossing tribute from a musical spectrum of artists, all of whom tip their hats to the lyrical genius, melodic craft and enduring emotional resonance of his songs. One of the coolest things about the project is that no one felt obligated to color inside the lines, giving a freewheeling sense of broad stylistic re-interpretation to “It’s So Easy,” “True Love Ways,” “Peggy Sue,” “That’ll Be The Day,” “Rave On” and 14 other classics from one of pop music’s most significant pioneers.
