"The songs collected on this disk prove that the biggest loss when that plane went down was indeed J.P. Richardson. Who knows where his talent and charm may have taken him. This disk also shows the Bopper's incredible diversity of style. If you have never heard anything but Chantilly Lace, you owe it to yourself to buy this one."
The big bopper was THE MAN

"The tragic death of the biggest bopper around is made even more tragic by the brilliant tunes and clever lyrics contained on this cd. It was the death of not only a young man with a family, but of a young musician with a future. No matter what music you're accustomed to, this cd is wholly enjoyable. The songs are relaxing, funny, and fun. It's not only good music, but it's a good time. One cannot help but fall in love with his endearing laugh, his excited voice, and his cheerful greeting so often heard throughout his songs: "HELLOOOO BABY!!" Like a fine wine, these songs only become better with age, as it is sure that the Big Bopper would have too, if he had had the chance."
The Bopper lives!

"On the anniversary of J.P. Richardson's tragic death, I wrote a piece for The Bopper's hometown newspaper, the Beaumont (TX) Enterprise, about his life, his family and his legacy. These songs are an excellent starting place to learning more about the Bopper -- Richardson's jive-talking, flamboyant alter ego. And if this album gets you more interested in The Bopper's short life (he was only 28 when he died with Buddy Holly and Ritchie Valens) then you are in for a treat. Did you know that in 1958 The Bopper foresaw the advent of "music videos" (his term), the necessary visuality of rock and roll, and even filmed some of his songs to pitch his idea to Mercury Records? He did, and that's just a small part of the complex person "the other guy on the plane" was."
