Like a lot of us here, I like to think my Buddy Holly/Crickets collection is pretty extensive, although I have never been a true completist. For that reason, it's always a fun surprise to find something I had not ever seen before.

In this case it's a box set overview of Buddy and the crickets
including an entire 3rd volume of the Crickets after Buddy.

the nearly new copy I found is on 3 cassettes, though I now see that it also exists as a 3 cd set.

So far i have only listened to the 3rd cassette with all the Crickets stuff featuring Earl Sinks, David Box et al.

My first impression is that the audio quality is terrific!
Nice stereo mixes where appropriate, not too awful reprocessed stereo on some tracks. Proper mono would have been nice on those cuts, but..oh well.

There is a quite lengthy unaccredited essay included, but no
musician credits or recording dates, nor a listing of original release dates.

The artwork for the package is not exactly stunning, but it's better than some packages of this type.

The only thing that would damper my mood regarding this set, issued in 2000, would be the inclusion of any Picks overdub

I can't imagine there will be any, as the whole set was officially licensed to Readers Digest by Universal Music.

So, if you see this set either on CD or Cassette at your local record shop or Sally Ann, consider grabbing it.

It gave me a fine excuse to listen to some later Crickets
tunes, for the first time in quite a while.
