A fellow fan sent me some info & links to a 1984 New York stageshow, 

"Innocents" (alluding to the Biblical, "Slaughter Of The Innocents").

Starring a young Len Amato, now the HBO-boss, who also sang

                 "Well  Alright"  on  the  closing  credits  of  

                       "Rock  &  Roll  The  Early Days".

In the interview (the complete interview is worth to listen to) he talks about his

groundbreaking yet fairly unknown show; "INNOCENTS", 1984
 
pre - "Buddy Holly At The Regal, 1985 ... pre - "BUDDY, The Buddy Holly
 
Story" .... 1988.

The critic wasn't excited about the show.

Why, he explains in this stage review in the October 29,

1984 issue of the New York Times.

Maybe that's why we hardly know anything about this work.
               



Article about the Buddy Holly Revue 1984
                 



NEW YORK TIMES, 29 Oct 1984

By Stephen Holden

STAGE: BUDDY HOLLY REVUE

 

''Innocents,'' an affectionate musical tribute to the rock- and-roll pioneer, Buddy

Holly, is a failed attempt to capture the essence of an elusive musical personality.
 
The 26-song revue, which is playing at Cafe La Mama, features a studio band that
 
performs many hits by the Lubbock- born musician who ranks just behind Little
 
Richard, Chuck Berry and Elvis Presley as a seminal 1950's rock-and-roller.


In the less than three years he made records, Mr. Holly, who died in a plane crash
 
in 1959, lay the groundwork for a tradition of austere rock- and-roll minimalism
 
that continues to this day. His spare, thumping rockabilly, performed in an intense
 
hiccuping style, has exerted a deep influence on everyone from the Beatles to Elvis
 
Costello.


The quintet of studio musicians who perform Mr. Holly's songs, successfully re-

create the drum and guitar styles of Mr. Holly and his band, the Crickets, but their
 
leisurely paced arrangements fail to capture the music's quality of intense
 
compression. Neither Len Amato nor Michael Blair, who divide most of the vocals,
 
comes close to imitating the clenched, grainy quality of Mr. Holly's singing.


Instead of offering meaty biographical detail, the dialogue between songs treats
 
Mr. Holly's life as a kind of trivia quiz, in which the 1950's rock- and-roll is seen as
 
an exotic curiosity. But in fact, 50's rock-and-roll styles continue to thrive in the
 
music of the Stray Cats, the Blasters, Dave Edmunds and others.





Many thanks to John Beecher for letting me know!

The former guitarist of the Shadows presents 59 of his songs on this
 
release. Hank Marvin defined the sound of a generation; he was the

first owner of a Fender Stratocaster in the United Kingdom.

         A true Buddy Holly fan from the very beginning . . .

For many people of a certain age, their first awareness of the Fender Stratocaster

was on the cover of the 1957 Chirping Crickets album, on which Buddy Holly is
 
clutching his guitar. Two years earlier, Buddy walked into Adair Music in Lubbock,
 
Texas and traded his first electric guitar for a brand new Fender Stratocaster,

which back then cost a shade over $300. That equates to about $2,600 today.


Four years later, on the cover of the first album by British instrumental greats

the Shadows, Hank Marvin is holding (admittedly not as visibly) the Stratocaster
 
he had bought after seeing Holly’s on the Crickets album. Ask just about any

British guitarist that came after the Shadows and almost every one will admit to
 
having been impressed with Hank’s red and white Stratocaster.
