Tommy Allsup The Buddy Holly Songbook
Tommy Allsup had the inspiration fot this all-instrumental album. He made the arrangements for the actual recordings, which took place in the studios of Norman Petty, in Clovis, New Mexico - the original scene of most of the hits by Buddy Holly and from The crickets. As you can hear here, everyone had a great time and enjoyed recording and thinking about "the good old days." You can share this great fun now and anytime you wish with this instrumental collection of Buddy Holly songs, featuring Tommy Allsup.
The originality of the great drum sounds heard here could only be created by none other than Jerry Allison, the noisy, fun-sharing young man who was the big beat behind most of Buddy's hits. Lynn Bailey, a friend of Tommy's from Lubbock, Texas, plays electric bass. If you listen closely, you'll hear Buzz Carson thumping piano.
