Varèse Sarabande: "THE BUDDY HOLLY STORY" CD/VINYL


Varèse Sarabande Records will release The Buddy Holly Story Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (Deluxe Edition), with all songs from the Academy Award®-winning film available for the first time on LP, CD and all streaming platforms on August 21, 2020. The LP format will include a black vinyl record in a standard jacket with printed inner sleeve, and the CD format will include a 16-page booklet, with both packages including rare photos of the icon, courtesy of his estate and the Buddy Holly Educational Foundation (tbhef.org). With the announcement of this exciting upcoming release, pre-order is available now on varesesarabande.com.

The expanded soundtrack features 22 tracks in total, including 11 tracks not released on the original soundtrack. The additional songs include many performances that were in the film, such as “That’ll Be the Day,” “Mockingbird Hill” and “Tennessee Waltz” performed by Gary Busey (as Buddy Holly), “Chantilly Lace” performed by Gailard Sartain (as the Big Bopper) and “You Send Me” performed by Paul Mooney (as Sam Cooke).

Buddy Holly is one of the most revered musicians in rock and roll history, and The Buddy Holly Story is his definitive legacy film. The project earned three Oscar® nominations, including “Best Actor” for prolific character actor Gary Busey, who has appeared in over 150 films, including Lethal Weapon and Point Break. Holly’s legacy is still going strong today, as he remains a chart topper in the U.K. and 2018’s Buddy Holly with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra was a top-ten hit on the Billboard charts.  A recent tour of the U.S. and the E.U. featuring a hologram of Buddy Holly grossed millions of dollars.
