Today’s issue of Excalibur has a “SMIL of the Month” feature reviewing the 1978 musical biopic The Buddy Holly Story. It’s SMIL because the Sound and Moving Image Library is where you can borrow the DVD. We have two DVD copies for borrowing, one on four-hour loan and one on three-day loan.
To listen to his music, get The Buddy Holly Collection, fifty songs on two CDs. If you want to read more about Holly, we have The Buddy Holly Story by John Goldrosen, a 1976 biography.
buddyhollyandthecrickets.com has a lot more about Holly and his band, and the Wikipedia entry will lead you on to other sources, as will Grove Music Online (for York people only).
