Buddy  Holly  Originals  And  Songs  He  Made  More  Famous




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

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' 
(2010) as well as 'The Baldy Holly Band' (2016) 
are 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,




              Please note: This list was not updated after the page was created.
