Oh Boy Review

by Heather Phares

The Dutch compilation Oh Boy gathers 20 highlights from Buddy Holly's career, ranging from rockers like "That'll Be the Day" and "Rave On" to tender love songs like "Listen to Me," "True Love Ways," and "Heatbeat." Though there are a few glaring omissions in the track list, most notably "It's So Easy," "Not Fade Away," and "Well...All Right," the album does feature most of Holly's best-known material and adds a few relatively lesser-known songs, such as "Midnight Shift," for good measure. Though Oh Boy isn't a definitive Buddy Holly collection, it certainly is an enjoyable one.
