Stream: Rave On Buddy Holly

June 21, 2011

We’ve heard cuts from Fiona Apple, Modest Mouse, and Florence & the Machine off this star-packed Buddy Holly tribute record, but now Concord Music Group have shared a stream of the entire 19-track compilation — complete with Karen Elson’s latest Jack White-produced track, She & Him doing “Oh Boy,” Lou Reed taking on his favorite (“It’s the best song!”) Holly tune, “Peggy Sue,” Patti Smith covering “Words of Love,” and many more reverent renditions. I must say — after one spin so far — that co-producer Randall Poster and friends have done a brilliant job at reminding us of Holly’s enduring legacy here. Pick up a copy and hear the whole collection above.
