Under the Covers Monday: Rave On Buddy Holly

We've already posted a Buddy Holly cover earlier this year, but it's worthy of a second spinning. Plus I'd like to talk about something else other than the Osama Bin Laden breaking news for a bit; {though trust I very much&always appreciate your diligent coverage during my morning commute, NPR.}

Upcoming tribute album to the iconic Buddy Holly, Rave On A Buddy Holly, is gathering steam for it's June 28th release on the Fantasy Records/Concord Music Group label. A fitting celebration in what would've been his 75th birthday.

Caught up in the spirit, I even got some new specs to look just like Buddy Holly. UH OH and like Mary...all right I'll stop.

In case you haven't already seen the billiontimesposted tracklist:

01. The Black Keys - “Dearest”
02. Fiona Apple and Jon Brion - “Everyday”
03. Paul McCartney - “It’s So Easy”
04. Florence and the Machine - “Not Fade Away”
05. Cee-Lo - “(You’re So Square) Baby, I Don’t Care”
06. Karen Elson (Produced by Jack White) - “Crying, Waiting, Hoping”
07. Julian Casablancas - “Rave On”
08. Jenny O. - “I’m Gonna Love You Too”
09. Justin Townes Earle - “Maybe Baby”
10. She & Him - “Oh Boy”
11. Nick Lowe - “Changing All Those Changes”
12. Patti Smith - “Words of Love”
13. My Morning Jacket - “True Love Ways”
14. Modest Mouse - “That’ll Be the Day”
15. Kid Rock - “Well… All Right”
16. Detroit Cobras - “Heartbeat”
17. Lou Reed - “Peggy Sue”
18. John Doe - “Peggy Sue Got Married”
19. Graham Nash - “Raining in My Heart”

And a few years old cover from Buddy Holly devotee, M.Ward.
