That’ll Be The Day – Buddy Holly (Live 1957)

Buddy Holly & The Crickets performing “That’ll Be The Day” on the Ed Sullivan Show on December 1, 1957. That’ll Be The Day is the second and final studio album from Buddy Holly. Decca, Holly’s first major record label, after failing to produce a hit single from Holly’s early recordings, packaged these 1956 tunes after he had some success with recordings from the Brunswick and Coral labels, i.e. the previously released single “That’ll Be the Day”. This is the last album released before his death in a plane crash on February 3, 1959, and is rare among collectors. What did you think?
