Buddy Holly ‘s influence on The Beatles is widespread and well-known. Some of its most fertile seeds were sown on 20 June 1957, when the rock ‘n’ roll pioneer released ‘Words Of Love. Buddy’s admirably subtle and heartfelt composition clearly inspired those young men across the Atlantic. But it also became an immediate US hit for a Canadian doo-wop band. Holly’s original of ‘Words Of Love,’ produced as usual by Norman Petty, featured the singer’s own harmonies

Buddy Holly recorded under several names and with several different backing bands. The Crickets played on almost all of his singles in 1957 and 1958. Holly recorded prolifically before his untimely death in a plane crash on February 3, 1959. He released three albums in his lifetime. Coral Records was able to release archival new albums and singles for 10 years after his death, but their technical quality was mixed, some being studio recordings and others home recordings.
Buddy Holly, the first rocker to actually go on stage wearing horn-rimmed spectacles, who died in an air crash on 3 February 1959, and who thereby created rock’s very first tragic legend, was much more than simply another 50s rock ‘n’ roll front man who got thrown into unnatural notoriety by his premature death.
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. The rest of the 12 tracks weren't as distinctive, though Holly's takes on such rock & roll hits as "Ready Teddy" and "You're So Square (Baby I Don't Care)" provide an interesting contrast with the more familiar versions by Elvis Presley. This was the final new album featuring Holly to be released during his lifetime. Every subsequent album was an archival or posthumous collection.
