Buddy Holly numbers sung by Terry Farlan
I don’t have any Buddy Holly records but I know all about him and most of the well known songs he wrote covered by other artists. It goes without saying that I wasn’t going to leave this LP in the charity shop. For one whole English pound it was coming home with me.
This copy is actually a re-issue from 1975 housed in an alternative front cover. The original release from 1969 has (I believe) a picture of singer Terry Farlan and his guitar adorning the cover.
I’ve had a quick look around the internet and have not been able to trace any worthwhile information about Mr Farlan. It doesn’t appear that he released any other recordings? Perhaps he was a paid session singer but did such a great job interpreting Buddy Holly’s songs they gave him a name-check on the cover and record label.
These are well produced, excellently reignited numbers and consequently a very successful compilation of rock and roll standards. It was well worth my £1 outlay.
