1. April 1958
THAT'LL BE THE DAY is the third album from American rock and roll icon Buddy Holly. Decca, Holly’s first major record label, after failing to produce a hit single from Holly’s early recordings, packaged these 1956 tunes after he had some success with recordings from the Brunswick and Coral labels, i.e. the previously released single "That'll Be the Day". This is the last album released before his death, February 3, 1959 and is rare among collectors; some mint copies are priced at $1,000.
Recordings were done in three different sessions typically running just 3 hours long, January, July and November 1956 at Bradley’s Barn Studio, 804 16th Ave. So., Nashville, Tennessee. From these sessions a single was released on April 16, 1956 (D 29854), “Blue Days, Black Nights” / “Love Me”. A second single “Modern Don Juan / You Are My One Desire” (D 30166) was released December 24, 1956. Low sales convinced Decca to shelve the remaining tracks. The Decca 1956 Nashville recordings were repackaged several times. Instruments and background vocals were added with later releases as late as 1984.
