Subject: Buddy Holly (the 1958 album)

Dale (true master tapes?)

Hi All

To my shame, I only recently learned of a 2017 (200 gram!)
reissue of the classic 1958 Buddy Holly album.

This time the label is "Analog Productions".

It sounds like a very nice presentation with "tape to lacquer" mastering, meaning not digitized.

The most exciting possibility of this release is that it may just be mastered from the first generation reel as spliced together and sequenced by Norman Petty's own hands.

In other words, not the 1958 safety copy that would have been sent to Coral.

Short of examining the source tape myself, that will remain an open question.

I open it to everyone here who may own a copy to share their thoughts regarding the audio richness of this latest pressing, particularly when compared to a nice clean 1958
original, or the 1995 180 gram "Heavy Vinyl Series" edition,
which I own.

I would like to know how either of those editions compares to an original, in true mono.

If you have read or heard of any article or video that may clarify the veracity of the all analogue source for
the new edition, please post the link here.
