The movie briefly touched base on Buddy's musical passion to learn, expand, and do more than a traditional 3-4 piece Rock & Roll band could on their own.
On October 21, 1958, Buddy took a leap of faith with his musical aspirations, doing a 3.5 hour recording session with Decca Studios in New York, with an 18-piece orchestra. Unheard of at the time for Rock & Rollers, such as himself.
Watch the promotional video, which includes special appearances by Buddy's wife, his brother, and others connected to Buddy and the project.
According to the Decca Records Classical YouTube post:
1. "True Love Ways"
2. "It Doesn't Matter Anymore"
5. "Raining In My Heart"
6. "Oh Boy"
7. "Rave On"
8. "Words Of Love"
10. "Peggy Sue"
12. "Maybe Baby"
Being a long-time Buddy Holly fan, having visited the Buddy Holly Center in Lubbock 3 times, his grave site, and Nor-Va-Jak Studios in Clovis NM twice (1.5 hours away, where he recorded his earliest hits under the direction of Producer Norman Petty), I am truly a Buddy Holly fan. Personally, I miss some of the instrumentation from the original versions. However, if this helps introduce Buddy Holly & The Crickets to a new generation, excellent. Those new listeners will seek out the original recordings to hear the difference.
God bless and R.I.P., Buddy.
