AllMusic Review by

The original London cast recording of Buddy Live: The Buddy Holly Story features renditions of Holly classics like "Peggy Sue," "Not Fade Away," "That'll Be the Day" and "Words of Love." The Big Bopper's "Chantilly Lace" and Ritchie Valens' "La Bamba" tribute the other rock & roll stars killed in the fateful 1959 plane crash that took Holly's life. Other early rock hits like "Johnnie B. Goode" add period flavor to this nostalgic show.
