THE BIRTH OF Motown isn't the only 50th anniversary pop music is noting this year: 2009 also marks the 50th anniversary of Buddy Holly's death. It would seem the perfect opportunity for the release of that long-awaited CD boxset that Holly's estate (i.e., his widow Maria Elena) has held up for far too long. And, sure enough, late January saw the release of a three-CD "best of" collection (which was first a Best Buy exclusive but is now available everywhere) and a two-CD "rarities" package.
