Buddy Holly's record collection

Buddy Holly's record collection

▪ Primary Source
When he went on performance tours, Buddy Holly brought a collection of 45-rpm records with him in two carrying cases (see photo). The 48 records that comprise this collection (listed below) reveal Holly's eclectic musical influences—from blues (Jimmy Reed, Little Walter), rhythm and blues (Hank Ballard and the Midnighters, Ray Charles), and gospel (Mahalia Jackson) to pop (Doris Day, Peggy Lee), rockabilly (Buddy Knox), and rock and roll (Bo Diddley, Little Richard, Ritchie Valens).
