Buddy Holly Legends never die !
Hello, my friends and comrade music-lovers. More than 2 years of targeted research here and there, as time permitted, went into my putting together this list of recorded songs, along with their titles and artists. Decades of published music history from Buddy Holly and other artists make up this list. The internet is full of lists, databases, and other forms of information. However, I have noticed that these lists are incomplete. Some of these sources seem to have started out with a bang, but then suddenly stopped before adding the latest items. By incorporating my own collection, which because of all the years and time invested might appear to be quite extensive, I have attempted to draw up as complete a list as possible. I have thoroughly and painstakingly exhausted all available and existing information to my knowledge. Although the result might seem impressive, in actuality its' completeness is temporary. Only for the moment. Aren't we all lucky that new songs and artists just keep popping in out of the blue at random? Our smorgasbord is infinite. "Buddy Holly Reloaded" is a prime example of what can suddenly materialize to add a rainbow of joy to our ears and hearts. Whoever wants to contribute and help to expand this comprehensive Buddy Holly database is cordially invited, and encouraged to send me any information that you think I should add. After all, this is a work in progress. A never ending story. And I like it ! One last thing. If you see a mistake or error that I might have made, I would appreciate your correction with source mentioned, please. Thank you so much, HANS
Rock 'n' Roll will never die
