In reply to: Larry 's message, "New Buddy Holly Photo" on Sun January 28, 2018 10:57:47

I’m thinking this photo is close to being authentic, perhaps as much as 98%. Buddy’s sight-line is bang on with at least 4 other people in the crowd who are looking straight at the camera (on a balcony?) and I don’t recall another photo of Buddy from which his head could have been ‘lifted’.

The coloured photo is somewhat problematic in that while it fixes the issue of that lump around Don Guess’s shoulders (in the b/w) and is satisfying in its resolution, the 3 friends are wearing jackets of a similar colour... I don’t recall Buddy ever wearing a salmon-coloured jean jacket. Unless Sonny has one hanging in his closet...

The central focus of the photo seems to be Cousin Minnie Pearl around whom an adoring crowd has formed a tight circle.

Finally, there’s the provenance of Kevin Terry’s tags, Bill Griggs’ scrupulous documentation, and paramount to all approbation here, is Roddy Jordan’s nod.
