Rave On Buddy Holly Cover Album

An album featuring daringly original covers of Buddy Holly songs has been created to celebrate what would be the rock icon’s 75th birthday and his enduring legacy.

Featuring tributes from My Morning Jacket, The Black Keys, Modest Mouse, Nick Lowe, Florence + The Machine, Cee Lo Green, Paul McCartney, Kid Rock, Lou Reed, Patti Smith, Julian Casablancas and more the entire album will be available to own from June 28, 2011

“In his short-lived but extraordinary life, Buddy Holly left behind a body of work so enthralling, his enduring influence is nearly impossible to overstate.  The melodic joy and fierce independent streak at the core of his artistry is profoundly felt on Rave On Buddy Holly, a 19-song collection of indelible Holly covers by a rich assemblage of current musical visionaries and creative kindred spirits.”  – Fantasy Records /Concord Music Group
