Harold Bradley

The Smithereens

Hello Hans,
Congratulations on your excellent website!
I am sure you know the following...but, just in case.....
The brilliant guitarist Harold Bradley, together with his brother Owen, owned the Nashville recording studios where Buddy Holly recorded a lot of his early tracks. Harold Bradley played guitar on several of Buddy's early releases including 'Rock Around With Ollie Vee', 'Modern Don Juan' and 'You're My One Desire'. (recorded 15.11.1956). Apparently he was a good friend to Mr & Mrs Holley.
Three years after Buddy's tragic death, Harold released the very somber, Tex-Mex instrumental 'Maria Elena'. (see attached image of my own copy). This have just been coincidence, who knows!
Kind regards,
Rob Woodhouse,
