Varese Sarabande Records have just released The Buddy Holly Story: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack on the digital online platform for the first time ever. This is the deluxe edition of the 1978 biopic that was made available on Friday.
The deluxe soundtrack is comprised of 11 previously-unheard tracks that extend the album to over 22 cuts in total. The new songs include those performed in the film, like “That’ll Be the Day,” “Mockingbird Hill”, and “Tennessee Waltz” performed by Gary Busey (who plays Buddy Holly), “Chantilly Lace” performed by Gailard Sartain (as the Big Bopper), and “You Send Me” performed by Paul Mooney (as Sam Cooke).
Maria Elena Holly, Buddy’s widow and founder of the Buddy Holly Educational Foundation, had this to say in a statement: “I am excited to listen this new Deluxe Edition of The Buddy Holly Story Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. Buddy’s songs and story continue to delight his long-time fans, while archival releases done with care such as this package serve to introduce Buddy to a new generation of fans.”
The expanded LP is available on digital, CD, and vinyl formats. The vinyl version has a printed inner sleeve while the CD features a 16-page booklet featuring rare photos of the late rock progenitor, courtesy of his estate, and the Buddy Holly Educational Foundation.
