The Big Bopper: Hello Baby - You Know What I Like! (CD)

1-CD-Album Digipack with 52-page booklet, 31 tracks, playing time: 73:26

The ultimate tribute to the artist who died alongside Buddy Holly and Ritchie Valens on 'The Day The Music Died'!

Includes the all-time smash hit Chantilly Lace! Plus the Big Bopper's original version of the hit he wrote for George Jones, White Lightning - Also includes ultra-rare recordings by the Big Bopper - as well as tribute records and sequels by Eddie Cochran, rockabilly legend Ray Campi, and Jayne Mansfield.

When the Big Bopper died in the plane crash that took the lives of Buddy Holly and Ritchie Valens, he'd scored just two hits, but his tragic death on 'The Day The Music Died' ensured his immortality. And it turns out he had a far more interesting career than most one or two hit wonders. For one thing, he wrote several other hits. His original version of George Jones' #1 country hit White Lightning is included here (he also wrote but never recorded Johnny Preston's #1 pop hit Running Bear). 

Sadly, he never saw either song top the charts. But this generously full CD includes a lot of Big Bopper, starting with all known recordings: his unissued-atthe-time first recording from 1954, his fabulously rare early rock 'n' roll singles for Mercury, his original recording of Chantilly Lace and the follow-up, and his original LP. But there's more: Big Bopper sequels and tributes include Eddie Cochran's Three Stars, Ray Campi's The Man I Met (A Tribute To The Big Bopper), Donna Dameron's sequel, Bopper 486009, and even JayneMansfield's
Chantilly Lace spin-off, That Makes It. Add to that, rare and unpublished photos from the Big Bopper's family as well as the first comprehensive biography by Johnette Duff.

"The Big Bopper"

The Big Bopper

February 2, 1959
Jiles Perry Richardson, Jr., known to his legions of fans as the Big Bopper, finished his last set at Clear Lake, Iowa's Surf Ballroom and changed into a red flannel shirt and light blue pants. He checked the time on his watch, a gift from his former boss, Jack Neil, back at KTRM radio in Beaumont, Texas. He found a bottle of Bufferin in his briefcase and swallowed a couple of tablets – he was fighting a nasty cold, made even worse by the horrible winter weather in the Midwest in the winter of 1959.

The lack of heat on the tour bus hadn't helped. Jape, his nickname to family and friends, remembered a family picture with his two brothers, taken when he was ten during a rare snowfall on the Texas Gulf Coast where he grew up. He stood in the middle of the siblings, his arms around his younger brothers, sticking out his tongue to catch the snowflakes. Snow might be fun when you were a kid, but it meant nightmare conditions for the musicians on the Winter Dance Party tour. What were the tour promoters thinking?

Jape knew that Buddy Holly, the most established headliner on the tour, had chartered a plane over at the Mason City, Iowa, airport for himself and a couple of members of his band to reach the next stop in Fargo, North Dakota, under better circumstances than they had been experiencing. Goose (Carl Bunch, Buddy's drummer) wasn't going – that was for damn sure – 'cause he was in the hospital with frostbitten toes. For once, not only had the heater given out but so had the bus. Stalled out in the middle of nowhere.

Only the fortuitous intervention of local law enforcement saved them all from death by hypothermia. Risking his life hadn't been part of his contract. Even burning newspapers in the aisle of the old school bus didn't seem likely to rescue them from the ever-decreasing temperature before the flashing lights showed up.

Jape decided he was going to work on Waylon Jennings, Buddy's bass player, or better yet challenge him to another game of craps and see if they could strike a deal for Jape to go in his place. Tommy Allsup and Waylon, a fellow Texan like Jape and Buddy, were currently the other two passengers lined up for the three-passenger plane.

Jape knew that Dion, a New Yorker a little more accustomed to cold winter weather, couldn't believe that Buddy was asking his backup musicians to fork over $36 for the plane ride. Dion's parents paid $36 a month for rent back home – it wasn't worth it. But Jape also knew performing was going to become impossible if he didn't get to a doctor and he needed to keep singing to send the money back home to his 'babies' – his pregnant wife Teatsy and their five-year-old daughter Debbie.

And there would be the added benefit of time to actually do laundry, a luxury that only extra time could buy. The stench on the bus was unbelievable – and, although they had missed their gig the night before because of the bus breakdown, there was rarely time to get to their next stop and set up for the performance on the schedule, much less time for anything else.
