(C45s)Blue Days - Black Nights/ Love Me by Buddy Holly

Label: Decca 29854 Year: 1956
Factory sleeve included
Condition: M- $350.00
Blue Days - Black Nights/ Love MeHere's a beautiful promo copy of Buddy Holly's very first single release featuring two amazing full-blown Rockabilly rave-ups. As it turns out, Decca had contracted with Holly after seeing him as a warm-up act for Bill Haley & the Comets a few months earlier, but they apparently didn't really believe in his potential. With little promotion, none of the tunes he recorded for Decca got much airplay, and sold even fewer copies. One of those tunes was a little ditty called "That'll Be The Day."

After the two Decca singles failed, the company released Holly from his contract, and he went on to sign with Brunswick with his band's name ("Crickets") to get around a restriction Decca placed on him when letting his contract expire. He also wanted to record as Buddy Holly, though, so he also signed with Coral Records and released his "Buddy Holly" singles there. The songs Holly recorded for Decca were packaged up and released by Decca in 1958 on the album That'll Be The Day.

Note: This single is from a large collection we've purchased whose records typically have mint or near-mint audio and near-mint vinyl. The labels are near mint as well, but the owner had a habit of writing a date in small print on the label (in this case, the A side label ... see scan). The audio on this promo copy is beautiful and clear! This copy comes in a vintage Decca Records factory sleeve.
