Unlike some user's comments here, this was not influenced by the Beatles as it came out before their records in 1958. This is one of the first classic rock albums. An amazing vocal performer and songwriter.

From Decurso
One of the most rockin' albums of it's time. Not as many hits as Chirping Crickets, but still packed with solid rockers.

One can only imagine what Buddy Holly would have been capable of creating had he stayed alive. His gift of song-craft was unmatched by anyone else in his time. Elvis was a captivating performed, but he wasn't an artist like Buddy Holly. Rock and roll is the way it is today because of him. This album is one of the best of the early era.

Pretty good for an album from the 1950's, and for one that's barely 30 minutes long.
