  • Released to coincide with the 50th anniversary of his death, the revealing 59-track, two-disc DOWN THE LINE: THE RARITIES offers a glimpse of the man and the recordings behind the Buddy Holly legend. While not for newcomers, members of Holly's not insubstantial cult will find a treasure trove of obscure and previously unreleased gems, highlighted by recordings of Holly and classmate Bob Montgomery, the Crickets' "Garage Tapes" cut in the Holly family's garage in late 1956, and the legendary "Apartment Tapes," the last recording made by Holly before his death--all in virgin, un-dubbed form. The set also includes outtakes and alternate versions of better known Crickets' cuts, all of which offer an insightful glimpse into Buddy Holly at work in the studio.
Professional Reviews
Paste (magazine) (p.68) - "[T]wo discs of material for fanatics and scholars -- from a home recording of a Hank Snow song, laid to tape before Holly's voice had changed, to the entire Buddy & Bob oeuvre and recordings of The Crickets' from the Hollys' garage."

Record Collector (magazine) (p.85) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[With] solid stabs at Louvin Brothers harmonies on 'Door To My Heart,' 'Footprints In The Snow' and sundry other country staples....Its downhome charm is limitless."
