    Buddy Holly Collected

    Import


    Buddy Holly was one of the greatest, most inventive artists in the first wave of Rock & Roll, which The Buddy Holly Collection certainly illustrates. The selection shows his wild-man Rockabilly ways as well as his sensitive songwriting.


    Although his success lasted only a year and a half before his death in an airplane crash, Holly is described by critic Bruce Eder as the single most influential creative force in early rock and roll. The Buddy Holly Collection stands as the most comprehensive and greatest retrospective of the legendary artist.


    Though it contains all the big hits, this is not the place to turn if you're only looking for That'll Be the Day, Not Fade Away, and Peggy Sue. This collection encompasses much more, delving deeper into Holly's body of work. An absolutely necessity for anybody who loves American music of the 20th century.


    His works and innovations inspired and influenced contemporary and later musicians, notably the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, and Elvis Costello, and exerted a profound influence on popular music.

    The Chirping Crickets (200 Gram Vinyl)

    Ranked 420/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time


    Country, Rockabilly And R&B Fused Into Epochal Rock 'n' Roll


    Remastered By Kevin Gray At Cohearent Audio From The Original Analog Master Tapes


    Plating And 200-Gram Vinyl Pressing By Quality Record Pressings


    Old-style Tip-on Gatefold Jacket From Stoughton Printing


    One of rock's greatest albums, this is the debut album by the Crickets and the only one featuring Buddy Holly released during his lifetime. The Chirping Crickets contains the group's number one single That'll Be the Day and its Top Ten hit Oh, Boy!. Other Crickets classics include Not Fade Away, Maybe Baby, and I'm Looking for Someone to Love.


    These are among the best rock 'n' roll songs of the 1950s or ever, making this one of the most significant album debuts in rock 'n' roll history - ranking with Elvis Presley and Meet the Beatles, writes AllMusic.


    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. 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 jacket to round out the package.


    Born Charles Hardin Holley on September 7, 1936, in Lubbock, Texas, Holly was nicknamed Buddy by his mother. She felt that his given name was too big for her little boy. Holly, the altered form of his last name, would later result from a misspelling in his first recording contract. Holly learned to play piano and fiddle at an early age, while his older brothers taught him the basics of guitar.


    In early 1956, Holly and his band began recording demos and singles in Nashville under the name Buddy Holly and the Three Tunes, but the group's lineup was later revised and dubbed The Crickets. Holly wrote and recorded his breakthrough hit, That'll Be the Day, with The Crickets in 1957. The song's title and refrain are a reference to a line uttered by John Wayne in the 1956 film The Searchers. Between August 1957 and August 1958, Holly and the Crickets charted seven different Top 40 singles.


    Composer and singer John Fogerty, of Creedence Clearwater Revival fame, inducted Buddy Holly into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame at the 1986 Hall of Fame induction ceremony. What Buddy Holly meant to him, Fogerty said, was destiny calling. Fogerty, 12, bought That'll Be The Day and soon began dreaming of forming his own combo, like the group of musicians - The Crickets - he saw on the album cover. And in Liverpool, England, the same thing was going on with four other guys. They named their group The Beatles, because Buddy Holly's group was called The Crickets.


    We are, each of us, made up of the people we love and the people we admire, Fogerty, said. We take those reflections, and hopefully, grow.


    Holly's talented life was cut short in a plane crash on Feb. 3, 1959, that also claimed the lives of Ritchie Valens and J.P. The Big Bopper Richardson. This album is a tribute to what was, and what might have been a lengthy pioneering musical career.

    Buddy Holly (200 Gram Vinyl)

    Pioneer Of Rock 'n' Roll In His Solo Album Debut!


    200-Gram Vinyl Pressed At Quality Record Pressings


    All-Analog Mastering By Kevin Gray At Cohearant Audio


    Deluxe Tip-On Gatefold Jacket From Stoughton Printing


    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. 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.


    Born on Sept. 7, 1936 in Lubbock, Texas, Buddy Holly
    was well-versed in several music styles and was a
    seasoned performer by age 16.


    When Buddy Holly & The Crickets broke through
    nationally in 1957, they were marketed by Decca Records
    as two different acts whose records were released
    on two different Decca subsidiaries - Brunswick
    for Crickets records, Coral for Holly records. But
    there was no real musical distinction between the two,
    except perhaps that the "Crickets" sides had more
    prominent backup vocals.


    This reissue marks the debut album credited to Buddy
    Holly. It features Holly's Top Ten single "Peggy Sue"
    plus several songs that have turned out to be standards:
    "I'm Gonna Love You Too," "Listen to Me," "Everyday,"
    "Words of Love," and "Rave On."

    Beat Group

    Originally released in the U.S. in 1966, Beat Group! was the American cousin to the Hollies' British LP Would You Believe?. However, identical cousins they were not: Beat Group! boasts substantially altered musical content and completely different cover art. Led by the snap-jangle-pop of the smash single, I Cant Let Go, the album is a thrilling combination of originals and R&B covers ripped from their riotous live sets. Highlights include commanding versions of Buddy Holly's Take Your Time, Sam and Dave's I Take What I Want and the Otis Redding/O.V. Wright classic That's How Strong My Love Is. Original songs Hard Hard Year, Oriental Sadness and Fifi the Flea, along with Mersey Beat staples A Taste of Honey and Mr. Moonlight round out the disc.


    Out of print for decades, this classic album is FINALLY available again. Sourced from the aurally awesome original U.K. mono master, this LP is pressed on pristine 180-gram vinyl per your turntables request. Get in the queue!


    Perhaps the most undervalued band of the original British Invasion, The Hollies hits are well known in the U.S. but their early albums are almost impossible to find! Taking their name from Buddy Holly and modeling their harmonies on the Everly Brothers, the Hollies gathered these American musical ingredients and whipped them into a wholly-UKnique concoction. Forging their sound to the east of their Liverpool brothers-in-beat, this Manchester quintet had it all: the soaring vocals of Allan Clarke, Graham Nash and Tony Hicks; Hicks cascading, arpeggio-laden licks on guitar and a hard-hitting rhythm section driven by drummer extraordinaire Bobby Elliot. On top of that, their keen ears for top quality songs, written by the premier songsmiths of the day like teenage wunderkind Graham Gouldman, Chip Wild Thing Taylor and the stellar in-house writing team of Clarke/Hicks/Nash, ensured that their albums were extraordinary from start to finish. In short, they were a band that exuded greatness on all fronts. Now, as that greatness has been acknowledged by their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Sundazed Music is proud to present meticulously restored vinyl editions of the rare U.S. mono versions of the Hollies third and fourth Imperial label albums, from 1966.

    Bus Stop

    No rest for the Hollies in 1966! Hot on the heels of Beat Group!, Bus Stop rolled into U.S. record shops, right on schedule. Written by Gouldman, the title track became the bands first Top Ten U.S. single, peaking at #5, and featuring their bell-tone harmonies to perfection. In addition to the sparkling single, the album is packed with their renditions of contemporary hits like Simon and Garfunkel's I Am A Rock, Smokey Robinson and the Miracles' Mickey's Monkey' and the Fred Neil/Roy Orbison chestnut Candy Man. Self-penned songs We're Through, Don't Run and Hide and You Know He Did also shine brightly and prove there was no danger of covering up the band members writing skills. With this disc, the Hollies put the rock world on notice that they were the British Invasions most beat-filled battalion!

    Ricky Sings Again

    Ricky Nelson Ricky Sings Again on Numbered Limited Edition LP from Mobile Fidelity Silver Label


    Foundation-Establishing Rock n' Roll Album Includes Eternal Hit Lonesome Town


    A Late 1950s Vocal and Instrumental Touchstone: Nelson Comes Into His Own, Moving Away from Teen Pop and Towards Serious Rockabilly


    Stellar Backing Band Includes Elvis Presley Sideman/Guitarist James Burton and Backing Vocalists the Jordanaires


    Also Includes Top 10 Singles Believe What You Say, It's Late, and Never Be Anyone Else But You;


    Superb Sound: LP Mastered on Mobile Fidelity's World-Renowned Mastering System and Pressed at RTI


    Ricky Nelson will forever be identified with the ageless single Lonesome Town. The career-defining smash is included here, on a record that arguably remains the picturesque idol's peak moment, a 1959 set on which the singer moves away from teen pop and towards serious rock nl' roll and rockabilly on par with the likes of Elvis Presley and Buddy Holly. Loaded with material expressly written for Nelson as well as tunes penned by Hank Williams and Johnny Cash, and featuring an all-star session musician band, Ricky Sings Again is a foundation-building 1950s album.


    Exceeding the fidelity of any prior analog pressing and affording a warmth missing from Capitol's out-of-print digital reissues, this Silver Label LP, pressed at RTI and mastered on Mobile Fidelity's internationally acclaimed mastering system, teems with detail, presence, dynamics, and authority. With help from his legendary father, Ozzie, Nelson enjoyed superb studio production, heard here in the form of balanced instrumentation, natural tonalities, wide and deep soundstages, and you-are-there vocals. Studio dimensions, too, come across with palpable body and precision. Since the record is a collection, some of the tracks are in mono, others in early stereo.


    Backed by a stellar band that includes Elvis Presley guitarist James Burton and in-demand studio bassist James Kirkland, Nelson delivers what remains a 1950s classic that stands up to everything recorded by his famous contemporaries. Burton mimics the sound of a train on One Of These Mornings, just one of the myriad tunes here on which the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member lays down fabulous lines and rockabilly licks that both shade and support the concise melodies. While largely recognized for the melancholy ballad Lonesome Town, one of four Top 10 singles on the set, Ricky Sings Again is as much about early rock n' roll and extraordinary singing. About that voice.


    Simultaneously tender and rollicking, innocent and mature, Nelson conveys a rainbow of emotions, pouring over country-flavored weepers and beat-driven rockabilly numbers with equal parts sensitivity, smoothness, and sincerity. A surfeit of heavenly background harmonies and innovative guitar-led breaks make masterpieces out of upbeat offerings such as You Tear Me Up as well as slow-dance invitations like Old Enough to Love. Add the Jordanaires on back-up vocals, and there's something for everyone here.


    No matter the performance, Nelson demonstrates time and again on Ricky Sings Again why he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in the institution's second year of existence, and why, even more so than Elvis during 1958-59, he was the period's leading singles artist.

    Go Bo Diddley


    The Bo Diddley/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Series Begins!


    Bo Diddley's Masterwork Album!


    First Time Official Audiophile Vinyl - Stunning First Time Gatefold Cover


    Mastered From The Authorized Chess Records Mono Tapes By Joe Reagoso


    Bo Diddley (Elias McDaniel) was truly an American original. There will never be another Bo Diddley nor anyone in the music
    industry who could influence generations upon generations of aspiring rock 'n rollers like Bo Diddley has and continues to this
    day, even years after his short time on earth.


    Celebrating six decades in the music business, this Mississippian native initially captivated millions of kids in the fifties
    with his first recordings like Bo Diddley and Say Man. He drove the rockers mad with his famous guitar riffs and boogie beat,
    filled with poetic lyrics and a thrilling presence on the stage.


    Bringing his original "Bo Diddley Beat" to Chess Records in early 1955, the Chicago based label and the pioneer rocker hit
    a goldmine immediately with his arsenal of tunes that he presented to Phil and Leonard Chess. A lot of these great songs became
    top charting singles which culminated in his masterwork album Go! Bo Diddley.


    Kicking things off with one of his finest smash hits Cracking Up, Bo roars through a treasure trove of 11 more champions
    which made this one of the most important and emulated albums of all time. The album features classic gems like his classics
    Dearest Darling, Say Man, Don't Let It Go and The Clock Struck Twelve. Noted for his stellar guitar work, pretty much introducing his Bo Diddley Beat riff to a whole new generation of guitar players, Go! Bo Diddley was truly a primer for a ton of rock and
    blues artists for years like Eric Burdon and The Animals, George Thorogood, Buddy Holly, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles and
    The Yardbirds.


    Bo Diddley opened the doors for millions of music fans around the world to enjoy rock and blues, making him along with
    Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley and Little Richard as one of the first pioneers of the popular recording business that we all enjoy to
    this day.


    Friday Music is no stranger to the music of the legendary Chess Records arsenal of fine recordings. That is why we are so
    very proud to announce our first installment in The Bo Diddley/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series with his legendary
    masterpiece Go! Bo Diddley.

    from the Chess monophonic tapes, Bo Diddley's Go! Bo Diddley will truly become one of the most important and historical 180

    Weezer (Blue Album) (Blue Vinyl)

    Ranked 297/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    Limited Edition Numbered Blue Colored Vinyl LP


    Mastered From The Original Master Tapes


    Features Superb Room-Filling Sonics


    1990s' Ultimate Geek-Rock Record: Includes Buddy Holly, Undone (The Sweater Song), & Say It Ain't So


    Weezer doesn't look like rock stars, its amusing name doesn't evoke stadium-heights glories, and the group's lyrics don't exude confidence or flash. For precisely these reasons, and the fact that the band's songs on its self-titled debut are the stuff of air-guitar dreams and shout-it-out choruses, the quartet became ironic arena-rock stars equally celebrated by in-the-know hipsters and mainstream radio listeners. Replete with urgent melodies, quirky confessional narratives, wry humor, and gargantuan hooks, Weezer (Blue Album) remains the best geek-rock record ever made.


    Mastered from the original master tapes and pressed on 180g blue-colored vinyl at RTI, Mobile Fidelity's analog version of the 1994 release Rolling Stone named the 297th greatest album ever recorded finally possesses the grand-scale sonics that the music's bunker-busting hooks deserve. Cars frontman Ric Ocasek's polished production is now both free of artificial ceilings that squashed the explosive dynamics and rid of the compression that saddled the frequency range. Instrumental separation is vastly improved, and the amount of midrange energy seemingly doubled. This reissue is guaranteed to help you rock out.


    Underdogs and misfits, Weezer emerged from Los Angeles as nerdy kids that eschewed traditional party-hard ways in favor of studying Kiss records, engaging in conversations about old LPs, and playing Dungeons and Dragons. The band's awkwardness joyfully translates in its songs on its 1994 debut, largely concerned with jealous insecurities, pop culture, true-to-life heartbreak, common accidents, youthful misconceptions, and daydreaming. Unlike many of their indie-rock peers, Weezer finds no need to conceal feelings in obscurities, snark, or impossibly impenetrable quirkiness.


    While every song on Weezer is a delight, In the Garage, the ultimate ode to a heavy-metal practice space and private musical retreat, best spells out the album's appeal and the band's intent. I've got an electric guitar/I play my stupid songs/I write these stupid words/And I love every one/Waiting there for me/Yes I do, I do/In the garage/No one cares about my ways/In the garage where I belong sings leader Rivers Cuomo, his voice often meshing with that of Matt Sharp, and giving the material a barbershop-quartet harmonic boost in line with the catchiness of the guitar-driven bridges and rhythmic foundations.


    More than three-times platinum, the Blue Album, as it's often called, also claims an iconic cover that pays tribute to that of the Feelies' Crazy Rhythms. The picture - as well as the bubblegum-inspired content within - has become an indelible part of modern culture. Weezer graces must-have lists from Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, Guitar World, and more. And needless to say, My Name Is Jonas, Say It Ain't So, Buddy Holly, and Undone (The Sweater Song) are all modern classics.

    That's Why I'm Here

    Import

    That's Why I'm Here is singer-songwriter James Taylor's eleventh album. It was released in 1985, four years after his previous effort, Dad Loves His Work [MOVLP893], and contains a cover version of Buddy Holly's Everyday, as well as the participation of a number of artists, including Don Henley, Joni Mitchell and Graham Nash.


    Taylor had found his long-term niche with baby boomer fans now permanently tuned to Soft Rock radio - this was Taylor's first record to spawn three Top Ten adult contemporary hits, with the title track, Only One and a cover of Buddy Holly's Everyday. That's Why I'm Here eventually went platinum.

    To Win Or To Lose

    Their second release for K reflects the new age of darkness that has recently hit the global mass market. This record has fast songs about living and self-destruction, songs about natural disaster, public domain dance music, and tales of those who walk the streets, sleep in dumpsters or cars, or who jump trains. "[This] defiantly Alabamian punk/rockabilly troupe who used to practice in a graveyard have stumbled on a winning formula: choppy, rhythm-centric odes to Buddy Holly and Carl Perkins and distinguish [themselves] with deft arrangements and an old hound's sense of restraint" - Pitchfork.

    You're My Baby / Rockhouse

    Most likely recorded in June of 1956, ''Rockhouse'' is a prime example of quintessential, undiluted rockabilly. While Roy and the Teen Kings' stint with Sun would be brief, the sheer power unleashed on these tracks is palpable. Most folks are only familiar with Orbison's perfected pop orchestrations recorded for Monument Records in the '60s, but his roots were firmly planted in the dusty West Texas sound, were influenced heavily by Buddy Holly and Elvis Presley, and remain equally important as the work of both.

    A Place Where We Could Go (Discontinued)

    This is a debut album containing ten songs, but really it is a cinematic escapade into the mind of the illusive and evocative Jeremy Jay. A Place Where We Could Go is a statement of fiction and fact, the romance of life without the people and things that pull down the corners. It's a fairy tale illuminated by streetlight and a safe haven for the exploration of dreams. Jeremy Jay and his music is like Buddy Holly, Peter Pan and the John Hughes movies rolled into one, pure storybook.

    strippers, and intoxicated U.S. Marines. Fronted by
    Bruce Joyner - a swamp rat synthesis of Buddy Holly,
    Bryan Ferry and Jerry Lee Lewis - The Stroke Band were
    an art-punk aberration to anything else happening in
    South Georgia in 1978 - 79. This Anthology Recordings

    Perfectly imperfect - that's one way to describe LA based punk act, The Regrettes. Writing songs that proudly bear a brazen and unabashed attitude in the vein of acts Courtney Barnett or Karen O - with a pop aesthetic reminiscent of 50's and 60's acts a la the Temptations or Buddy Holly - the LA based four piece create infectious, punk driven tracks.

    Lead by outspoken frontwoman, Lydia Night, and comprised of Genessa Gariano on guitar, Sage Nicole on bass and drummer Maxx Morando, the group have left the LA rock scene floored, managing to capture the hearts of jaded rock critics while opening for acts like Kate Nash, Jack Off Jill, Bleached, Pins, Deep Vally and more.

    Hurley

    Weezer return to their indie rock roots on Hurley, their first release on Epitaph and the start of a new chapter in the bands storied career. In many ways, Weezer have always been the unlikeliest of pop bands, earning major radio and video play for left field singles like Undone and Buddy Holly, songs that hardly seem calculated to become radio hits. It is exactly this uncalculated quality that the band returns to on their eighth album. Hurley is as warm and embracing as the glowing smile on actor Jorge Garcias face that graces the cover, as ragged and endearing as fan favorite Pinkerton, as bold and hooky and open as Pork and Beans. And as if that wasnt confusing enough, Rivers Cuomo co-writes with Ryan Adams and legendary Elvis Presley writer Mac Davis (In the Ghetto). In other words, Hurley is in the classic tradition of the best Weezer albums, goofy and confessional and geeky and easy to singalong to.
