Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Mark Deming
Buddy Holly was just 22 years old when he died in a plane crash on February 3, 1959, a mere three years after he cut his first record, and in that brief amount of time, he wrote some of the greatest and most enduring songs in the history of rock & roll. 35 classic performances are collected on The Very Best of Buddy Holly, a set that features most of Holly's biggest hits ("Peggy Sue," "That'll Be the Day," "Rave On," "Maybe Baby," "Well, All Right") as well as some lesser-known classics ("Learning the Game," "Take Your Time," "Listen to Me," "Love's Made a Fool of You"), and a few choice covers ("Baby, I Don't Care," Brown Eyed Handsome Man," "Bo Diddley").

The set list covers the breadth of Holly's career, from his first recordings in Nashville to his final sessions in New York City, and Holly's sincere but passionate vocals and his impressive guitar work shine through on every track. While not every memorable tune in Holly's repertoire is featured here, the scope of this single-disc compilation is impressive, and it's difficult to imagine another single figure in rock history who produced this much great music in less than 36 months; calling this the definitive Buddy Holly collection is going too far to make a point, but if you only want to own one disc's worth of his music, The Very Best of Buddy Holly is a genuinely fine choice.
