Press Release from Varese Sarabande:
The expanded film soundtrack features 22 tracks in total, including 11 tracks not released on the original album. Available for the first time, the CD includes a 16-page booklet with rare photos of the icon, courtesy of his estate and the Buddy Holly Educational Foundation (tbhef.org).
The additional songs include many new film performances such as “That’ll Be the Day,” “Mockingbird Hill” and “Tennessee Waltz” performed by Gary Busey (as Buddy Holly), “Chantilly Lace” performed by Gailard Sartain (as the Big Bopper) and “You Send Me” performed by Paul Mooney (as Sam Cooke).
Buddy Holly is one of the most revered musicians in rock and roll history, and The Buddy Holly Story is his definitive legacy film. The project earned three Oscar nominations, including “Best Actor” for prolific character actor Gary Busey.
