Even if you’re skeptical about the concept, take a break from the dance beats you’re used to hearing on the radio these days and listen to a musical tribute to the man who coined the term, “Rave On,” decades before the Electric Daisy Carnival or “Hard Halloween” even existed. “Rave on Buddy Holly,” a tribute album celebrating the life and talent of the legendary rock icon for what would have been his 75th birthday, offers an upbeat and refreshingly diverse listening experience; a product of timeless melodies and lyrics met with a thoroughly modern sound. The album features covers of Holly’s most memorable songs performed by contemporary artists such as Cee Lo Green, Paul McCartney, The Black Keys, Modest Mouse and Florence + The Machine. The musicians take Holly’s masterpieces and make them their own, providing for a unique and artistically distinguished final product. excerpt written by Whitney Tolar for neontommy.com
