Subject: Buddy Holly Story Vol. 2

[ Next Thread | Previous Thread | Next Message | Previous Message ]

Hi everyone

I have just been listening to a 1963 (second pressing)
of the Buddy Holly Story Vol. 2, in mono CRL 57326.

I was most interested in the Jack Hansen produced overdubbing
of the N.Y. apartment recordings.

I'm very aware of the bad reviews these have often received
through the decades, but I must say that in several cases I
have a new respect for several of them.

Hearing them in the original monophonic format as opposed to the fake or even later genuine stereo mixes is very interesting.

The transitions (extended bits) from passages where
Buddy is performing to the sections added by Hansen to
lengthen the songs, are less jarring and sound more natural.

Also, the volume balance between Buddy's voice and the new Hansen backing is better achieved in true mono.

I like the guitar solo section in "That's What They Say"
so much that it seemed like a different take.

My point is that even after hearing all of these recordings
on so many different compilations and formats for so many years, there are still items of interest that pop up, and that there is always something to be said for a first
edition (or in this case, early second) pressing of a classic album.

lastly, yes, I do believe Buddy's legacy would have been well served if the "apartment tapes" had been issued
unadorned at the time. They are intimate and wonderful.

The point of this post was only to re examine what was done historically.
