I agree with "Candlestick" that the 20th Century series are skimpy (very skimpy when compared with Motown's Ultimate series) but I decided to go with this one because it's the latest remastering and I have been disappointed with some other gold cds. And I'm very satified - it has all the songs I wanted and the sound is very good.
Also check out "not fade away" the Holly tribute cd: almost the same playlist with some sweet interpretations and great notes.

Format: Audio CD
20th Century Masters: The Best Of Buddy Holly (Millennium Collection) takes the "best of" Buddy Holly and has the audacity to cut and paste it into a mere twelve tracks. These twelve songs are wonderful music by Buddy Holly; but by no means is this a legitimate "Best of" collection. The title is rather misleading; and I dislike that. However, the sound quality is as good as the music; and the artwork is about par for this CD series.

The CD starts with "That'll Be The Day;" this was a huge hit for Buddy and he sings and plays this up right! The guitar is awesome and Buddy sings this brilliantly. Buddy's voice is rather fine; his excellent diction also bolsters his performance. It's all very impressive. "Words Of Love" has Buddy doing a slightly less rocking tune but it still holds its own very well. The music is beautiful and I really like "Words Of Love." Moreover, listen for the high energy "Peggy Sue;" Buddy sings this like the pro he always was and there's no wonder why this became a hit for Buddy. I love it!

"Everyday" puts Buddy firmly into the spotlight as he sings a tender, sweet love ballad; the percussion enhances the natural beauty of this ballad and Buddy never misses a beat! I always liked "Everyday" and I predict that you'll like it, too. "Maybe Baby" has a great flavor to it; Buddy delivers this with just the right amount of rock to keep this baby shining brightly! "Maybe Baby" also sports an excellent guitar arrangement.

"It's So Easy" is another major highlight of this CD; the guitars work great and this is truly great music for dancing! Buddy and his buddies do this to perfection--and beyond!
"True Love Ways" is a softer rock ballad that has a more traditional arrangement complete with strings to accompany Buddy as he sings this charming number.

I never quite realized how many great songs Buddy Holly had recorded in his very short lifetime until I got this CD. Rave On, It Doesn't Matter Anymore, Every Day, and True Love Ways are all fantastic -- yet all the current radio stations only concentrate on his famous "Peggy Sue" cut. For such a low $$ amount for this CD, you can't go wrong!

this is a good cd to buy if you're not a huge fan of buddy's because you'll get his well-known songs which sound great. but it's lacking some of his other songs which, although they're not as popular, are just as good. so i found this collection to be a bit of a disappointment. there are other cds out there with a better offering of buddy's true talent.

Glancing at some of the reviews of this album, it seems that there are many opinions as to how many songs and which songs are required to make up a "Best of" collection. I won't disagree with any of the other reviewers but I'll say that if the answere to the first part of the question is 12, this is a GREAT collection of Buddy Holly tunes. I've been listening to my copy and loving it for years now. If you need more songs or different songs than what is on here, someone has made a package for your needs. As much as I look wishfully at some of the other compilations on the Amazon site, I've yet to buy any as this disc still makes me happy with the Buddy Holly I get to listen to on it!

I am not a huge Buddy Holly fan, but I have always like his music as I do listen to alot of 50's music. I liked this album, it has all the songs I know by him. "Maybe Baby" being a personal fave...reminds me of the show "happy days" for some reason. Buddy Holly was a true pioneer of rock, and was taken far too soon. This is a good tribute for the casual fan to listen to.

Buddy Holly is and always will be on my top 10 list of favorite musicians. He was a very talented man, and I can't help but wonder where his career would have gone if he hadn't died. This is a superb value, but iTunes has a collection out called "The Complete Buddy Holly Story" featuring Holly himself, The Crickets, the new Crickets, Bobby Vee and a slew of other artists for an amazing price. Rock on, Buddy!

I'll Rave On about how wonderful Buddy Holly's work was and how delightful this collection is. He was a one of the Pioneers of Rock & Roll and no doubt influenced countless artists along the way. In early 1965 the Beatles did "Words of Love," as a nod to this incredibly talented man.

Don't just take our word for it - just get this collection!

If you could see ANYONE In Concert Tonight .. Who would you pick?
Johnny Cash, a man that had been through hell and back and his songs reflected that, the man in black. I'd like to see him in a large smoky honky tonk, sweat dripping off his face, and it being the best concert he ever gave. Of course, being a honky tonk beer and whiskey for all.
