It's entirely plausible that the show, and many others, were recorded. I'd be shocked if at least ONE Buddy Holly concert wasn't recorded by SOMEBODY. Maybe somebody wanted to test a new piece of equipment, maybe somebody recorded every concert that came to town but used the same tape so it got recorded over each time... the possibilities are endless.

Did any of it survive and/or if it did, do the people who have it know or care what it is? Sadly, that's quite unlikely.

If I had to speculate, I'd say that the Summer and Winter Dance Party shows are the most likely to have had recordings made. The big package shows? Eh, I'd doubt that, but for the shows that were more small-time affairs, a recording or two probably existed at one time. Crazy when you think about how historically significant such a recording would be today. I actually think Universal would pay a decent fee (think low five figures) if a live recording of releasable quality were to surface. It's not the type of thing that would go Platinum or anything, but it would sell enough copies to cover expenses.

Anyway, it's all pretty much moot anyway. With each passing year, it gets less and less likely we'll hear anything new.
