Buddy Holly Greatest Hits Rar Do BEST

AVID Rock N Roll continues with its Four Classic Album series with a re-mastered 2CD release set from Freddy Cannon, complete with original artwork, liner notes and personnel details.“Sings Happy Shades Of Blue”; “The Explosive!”; “Freddy Cannon Favourites” and “Palisades Park” plus seven bonus tracks.A quick check over some of the tracks on our latest rock n roll release and you will see what a well-travelled fellow Freddy “Boom Boom” Cannon was! After covering all “shades of blue” on our first title Freddy takes us on a journey across the US starting in Boston (My Home Town) (in fact he was born in Swampscott Massachusetts in 1936, but hey that’s artistic license for you). Next we move to Kansas City, Georgia, New Orleans (Way Down Yonder) one of his greatest hits, St. Louis, Indiana, Chatanoogie, Texas, California, Okefenoke, Carolina and of course Tallahassee (Lassie) another of his monster hits. And that’s not to forget his million seller of 1962, the classic Palisades Park, found on the classic album of the same name on CD2 of this set. A few Freddy Facts:- He holds the record for the most appearances on Dick Clark’s American Bandstand at an outrageous 110 times! His nickname “Boom Boom” comes from the loud crashing and thumping sound of his records and the fact that he never really made a sad song. They were all up tempo rockers! Freddy’s second album “The Explosive Freddy Cannon” became the first album by a Rock n Roll singer to top the UK charts in 1960, where Freddy also toured. Best of all... Freddy is still alive and going strong at 85 years of age!Technical note:- This CD will almost certainly be the first to include the correct mix of ‘Humdinger’ as released on a 7" single and on the ‘Favourites’ LP as originally issued by Top Rank in the U.K. the only CD compilations of his (that I’ve seen / listened to) have a not released at the time slightly longer version with additional orchestration in the instrumental break...Check out: - Chuck Berry (AMSC1238); Little Richard (AMSC1286); Bo Diddley (AMSC1296); The Everly Brothers (AMSC 1277), Elvis Presley (AMSC1384, 1299 & 1257); Gene Vincent (AMSC1314); Fats Domino (AMSC1272); Jerry Lee Lewis (AMSC1235); Roy Orbison (AMSC1232); Duane Eddy (AMSC1370); Buddy Holly (AMSC1217); Rockabilly Legends (AMSC1377); Rock N Roll- Classic Albums (AMSC1331).
