Rolapak card cover version with the original UK front cover design and a detailed 36 page booklet with notes by John Beecher, Chris Hopkins and Crickets drummer, J. I. Allison, who provided us with encouragement and help during the process.

By August 1957, The Crickets were hot in the US with their first single, "That'll Be The Day" which, after a slow start, had been moving up the charts. As a result, on 2nd August, the group were off on tour, beginning at the Howard Theatre in Washington, DC. From then on, until the end of November, they toured almost without a break. Meanwhile, Brunswick were calling for an album and, although several tracks had been recorded in Clovis, a few more were needed. Fortunately there were a few short breaks in the tour and during September .The Crickets recorded four tracks at the Officers Club, Tinker Airforce Base, Oklahoma City. Norman Petty - his trio were appeared that evening there and the recordings were made 'after hours' on a portable Ampex recorder, when things were quiet.

Because of the urgency, and the need to continue with The Crickets sound as it was interpreted on both sides of their hit, Norman Petty took the tapes back to his studio in Clovis, New Mexico and decided to overdub background vocals on thes four Olkahoma recordings  and some other tracks which had been recorded earlier in Clovis. This may have gone against The Crickets own plans for finishing the album tracks and, when they heard the results upon the release of The "Chirping" Crickets LP in November 1957, there was some discussion about the obtrusive nature and style of background vocals on some of the finished recordings. Their first single had been rehearsed with friends who 'honed the background vocals  to perfection' as the group felt. "Not Fade Away" with their own overdubs, also sounded the way they thought it should. The addition of The Picks, a rather 'square' vocal group, did not always sound as integrated as the earlier recordings. For years, The Crickets, and many of their fans, wondered how the undubbed versions of the album tracks would have sounded.

Modern technology has advanced so much that it has become possible, with the help of recent innovations and hours of work by our dedicated and determined engineer Chris Hopkins, to realise the dream. By separating the instruments, it was possible to remix and create stereo and 'undubbed' versions of the recordings. Thus you will hear the Alternative "Chirping" Crickets album pretty much the way it should have sounded in 1957, along with the original, but remastered, version and stereo mixes of the tracks. Note that to achieve consistency, we have also presented "That'll Be The Day", "I'm Looking For Someone To Love" and Not Fade Away" without background vocals.

THE CRICKETS

That’ll Be The Day (Buddy Holly)


THE CRICKETS

So what would Buddy Holly have sounded like if he was still recording in 1963? The Crickets provide a possible answer. By 1962, former dee-jay Jerry Naylor was taking the lead vocals, and the group was rounded out by drummer Jerry Allison, lead guitarist Sonny Curtis, and pianist Glen D. Hardin (although researcher John Ingman figures that Leon Russell plays piano here). Jerry Naylor took the lead on most of the Liberty recordings until he went solo in 1965. The Crickets were astonishingly successful in the UK during the early 1960s, racking up several hits, including Carol King's Don't Ever Change, Sonny Curtis's My Little Girl, as well as Don't Try To Change Me and a revival of La Bamba. They even landed a movie role, singing My Little Girl and Teardrops Fall Like Rain in the 1962 British rock music movie, 'Just For Fun.' Here they tackle a song by their Liberty Records stablemate Jackie DeShannon and Sharon Sheeley, the girlfriend of former Liberty Records star, Eddie Cochran. It first appeared as a single, then on the UK-only LP, 'A Collection,' in 1965.

At the time this was issued in the UK, first on a single and then on a UK-only album, 'A Collection,' the Crickets were a hot item in Europe, as indeed was their former lead singer, Buddy Holly. In the USA, Lonely Avenue was issued as a single in January 1964 coupled with You Can't Be In-Between, but in the UK Lonely Avenue was released two months later, coupled with the just-recorded Playboy. The latter was an early effort by David Gates, who became the founder and chief composer for the '70s soft rock group, Bread. The son of a band director and piano teacher in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Gates grew up with classical music, and was reading music at age Five. By high school, he was proficient on piano, guitar and bass, and was soon making rockabilly records for East-West, Mala, and other labels. Just weeks before Playboy was recorded, Gates had his first hit as a songwriter when The Murmaids took his Popsicles And Icicles into the US Top 10.

 

Recorded on June 14, 1963 and released just over one month later, hopes must have been high for April Avenue, but the song has been curiously neglected through the years, and rarely reissued until now. Sonny Curtis took the lead vocal on what amounts to a complete short story related in under two-and-a-half minutes. He was becoming an ace songwriter. "When I was a kid,” he says, "I wanted to be a big country star. A local promoter put me on a show with Hank Snow. I went on right before Hank, and to impress him, I sang a lot of his hits. I was so dumb, I didn't realize that was not the thing to do. Hank's road manager told me that if I wanted to make it, I would have to find my own songs, and if I didn't know any songwriters, I would have to write them myself. I never became a big country star, but I did learn to write songs.” He wrote Walk Right Back for the Everly Brothers, and in 1964 the Bobby Fuller Four revived his Crickets song, I Fought The Law. In 1980 Leo Sayer revived another old Crickets song, More Than I Can Say, and later that decade Sonny walked away with several awards for Keith Whitley's big country hit, I'm No Stranger To The Rain, but his biggest payday probably came when he wrote and recorded the theme song to 'The Mary Tyler Moore Show.'
