Various Artists: The Great Tragedy - Winter Dance Party 1959 (CD)

1-CD with 24-page booklet, 40 tracks, including six radio broadcasts. Total playing time 78:32 mins.

Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and The Big Bopper died in a plane crash.
February 3, 1959 will always be remembered as ‘the day the music died.’
Tribute CD wth key titles from these rock ‘n’ roll stars.
Plus sides by the surviving artists incl. Dion & The Belmonts, Frankie Srado, Waylon Jennings, et al.
Plus tribute songs and radio broadcasts.
Newly mastered with liner notes from music expert, Bill Dahl.

February 3, 1959 will always be remembered as ‘the day the music died.’ On that frigid occasion, a small plane carrying Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and The Big Bopper crashed in a frozen Iowa field, killing all touring three rock and roll luminaries and their pilot. Bear Family’s posthumous tribute disc to the tragedy brings together some of their greatest recordings on this one-of-a-kind collection, along with key sides from the surviving participants of the tour—Dion and the Belmonts, Frankie Sardo, Waylon Jennings, even Debbie Stevens, whose cover of If You Can’t Rock Me is an unheralded classic. 

There are also a series of tribute songs to the fallen triumvirate by Eddie Cochran, Ray Campi, Benny Barnes, and Hershel Almond, as well as excerpts from period radio broadcasts relaying the devastating news. Rock and roll would never be the same—it had forever lost its innocence—but the seminal music that Buddy, Ritchie, and the Bopper gave us will never grow old.
