"Bobby Vee was a sixteen year old kid when his band "The Shadows" made their first professional appearance at a concert in Moorhead, Minnesota on Feb.3rd 1959. It was the day Buddy Holly, The Big Bopper and Ritchie Valens were killed in the plane crash. These singers, had they lived, would have played in Moorhead. The show went on and local talent was asked to fill in. This was the start of Bobby Vees career. Bobby was heavily influenced by Buddy and sounded alot like him. In 1962 "Meet the Crickets" was released with drummer Jerry Allison, Joe B. Mauldin on bass and a newer member. This album featured a mix of Buddys songs and others. "I remember Buddy Holly" was released in 1963 and featured "Buddys Song" which used titles of Buddys hits to make a song, a fun tune. Even if you have Buddys original recordings you'll want this one as well. I would buy this one!!!"
