Check Discogs... there are currently a few copies for sale there.
This is a really good collection of every great song but doesn't have the undubbed demos
I found a VG decca set a few months ago....I am not a vinyl guy but I thought at some point in the future I would attempt a needle-drop....I'm not the most technically proficient person but this box is beautiful....the book seems to be almost like rice paper.
At this point in time, that is probably the best way to get the best audio sound for a (use it loosely) 'Complete' set.
I wouldn't be putting my faith in 'Universal' being bothered or interested in such an endeavor.
The days of the mighty boxset are just about done, now that the masters have been 'consumed' by
these large corporations.
have you compared and still confident that the 6 lp mca collection has a better sound than the complete NFA set on hip-o-select cd set ?
I play these two collections a few times a year:
1. From the original master tapes (MCAD 5540 JP for US)
2. The budddy holly collection (mcad2 10883)
Am I missing anything essential?
IMHO. The Apartment Tapes are essential. They are included on Down the Line - Rarities Collection.
Also, For the First Time Anywhere cd. Mastered by our Host
I found a 1 d.v.d. & 1 c.d. package titled THE BUDDY HOLLY STORY" I believe and it had the complete ED SULLIVAN SHOW appearances....the c.d. was called "20 greatest hits" and it's worth tracking down this package....beautifully packaged too!
I've always loved Buddy's recordings. When the Not Fade Away collection came out I had to get it. It is a great set. The only problem I have with it is that it's chronological. I'd much rather have had the masters in order and then a disc or two of alternates and then a couple more discs of the apartment tapes.
While I have the Memorial Collection, Down the Line Rarities, and the MCA Buddy Holly Collection dbl, I recently picked this up for $12:
This collection is very good with a lot of stuff not on any of the above collections. Sound is good. But! They clipped the first few notes of That'll Be the Day. Other than that miscue, there is a lot of good, lesser known BH on these 3 discs.
Just like the footage of Buddy on The American Bandstand. I think a private collector made a firey offer!
