Hi Mike

Perhaps you were on vacation when this story broke.


Initially, before more details came to light, it seemed as though there could be a possibility of Holly RECORDINGS being issued on BMG, making Buddy and Elvis label mates.

As the article shows, the deal with BMG is for song publishing and image rights, not audio recordings.

This article gives a bit more detail:

here is an excerpt:

The deal comprises three separate elements of the Buddy Holly catalogue:

US music publishing rights in virtually every song written by Buddy Holly including classics ‘Everyday’, ‘Peggy Sue’, ‘That’ll Be The Day’, ‘Words Of Love’, and ‘Not Fade Away’;
Royalties due throughout the world on sales of Buddy Holly recordings as well as his writer’s share of publishing royalties;
All of the rights in Buddy Holly’s name, image and likeness.
