Buddy Holly- Apartment Demos

On this day in 1959, 22 year old Buddy Holly, The Big Bopper and Ritchie Valens, aged 17, died in a crash shortly after take-off from Clear Lake, Iowa, the pilot of the single-engined Beechcraft Bonanza plane was also killed. Holly hired the plane after heating problems developed on his tourbus. All three were traveling to Fargo, North Dakota, for the next show on their Winter Dance Party Tour which Holly had set – covering 24 cities in three weeks, to make money after the break-up of his band, The Crickets, the year before.

There is a track in this compilation called “Ni***** Hatin’ Me” that is clearly not Buddy Holly and I have no idea why it was on here to begin with. I have removed the track for two reasons: It’s not Buddy Holly, and I have no desire to spread that kind of hateful song to anyone.
