Album Review

Like any record company worth their salt, MCA knows a good gimmick when they see it, and when the millennium came around...well, the 20th Century Masters — The Millennium Collection wasn't too far behind. Supposedly, the millennium is a momentous occasion, but it's hard to feel that way when it's used as another excuse to turn out a budget-line series. But apart from the presumptuous title, 20th Century Masters — The Millennium Collection turns out to be a very good budget-line series. True, it's impossible for any of these brief collections to be definitive, but they're nevertheless solid samplers that don't feature a bad song in the bunch. For example, take Buddy Holly's 20th Century volume — it's an irresistible 12-song summary of his Decca/MCA recordings. There may be a couple of noteworthy songs missing, but many of his best-known songs for the label are here, including "That'll Be the Day," "Words of Love," "Peggy Sue," "Everyday," "Not Fade Away," "Maybe Baby," "Oh Boy!," "It's So Easy," "Rave On," "True Love Ways," "Think It Over," and "It Doesn't Matter Any More." Serious fans will want something more extensive, but this is an excellent introduction for neophytes and a great sampler for casual fans, considering its length and price. That doesn't erase the ridiculousness of the series title, but the silliness is excusable when the music and the collections are good.

The Man is Brilliant

These songs were way before my time, but I still love Buddy Holly anyway. I grew up to these songs, and ended up liking them more than my parents did. These songs are catchy--for a kid, and for an adult. Masterful indeed!

A true Legend who died way too soon!

Buddy Holly is quite simply one of the best muscians ever. His influence can still be heard today. I love everyone of these songs. I never get tired of hearing them. That geeky guy could rock!

I love Buddy!!!

All of Buddy's songs are amazing. I just saw the play "The Buddy Holly Story" and the guy who played Buddy was not only hot and georgeous, but amazing at portraying him. He was a great singer, dancer, songwriter, and guitarist, plus very strong willed. Now I love Buddy even more!!

Biography

Born: September 7, 1936 in Lubbock, TX

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '50s

Buddy Holly is perhaps the most anomalous legend of '50s rock & roll — he had his share of hits, and he achieved major rock & roll stardom, but his importance transcends any sales figures or even the particulars of any one song (or group of songs) that he wrote or recorded. Holly was unique, his legendary status and his impact on popular music all the more extraordinary for having been achieved in barely 18 months. Among his rivals, Bill Haley was there first and established rock &...
