Buddy Holly is the latest rock legend to have his classic vocals blended with symphonic backing.
Buddy Holly With the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra: True Love Ways starts from vocals recorded on October 21st, 1958. During a three-and-a-half hour session at Decca Studios in New York, Holly opened a new chapter in his career, working with an 18-piece orchestra. They recorded four tracks: “True Love Ways,” “Raining in My Heart,” “Moondreams” and “It Doesn’t Matter Anymore.”
Those four songs, along with earlier Holly classics such as "Oh Boy," "Rave On," "Words of Love," "Peggy Sue" and "Maybe Baby," are reborn with a deeper sound that Buddy could ever have imagined.
