Buddy Holly: A Rock & Roll Collection

Greg Shaw, Phonograph Record, September 1972

I DON'T LIKE to be made a fool of. Last January the folks at Decca told me of their plans for an elaborate Buddy Holly reissue, a 3-record set incorporating rare unreleased tracks and all sorts of goodies. I immediately volunteered to supervise the project to insure accuracy in every respect, but they assured me it was in the hands of a well respected authority and would be compiled with tender loving care. Thus armed, I set about writing a glowing rave for Umbrella, the company's house organ, commending MCA for its dedication to the rock & roll treasures in its custody.
