Buddy Holly with The Jack Hansen Combo: THAT MAKES IT SOUND SO MUCH BETTER - 10" vinyl LP. Buddy Holly's 'apartment tapes' are well-known, particularly the six songs he wrote in December 1958 and recorded on his Ampex 401A tape-recorder. These were heard first in the overdubbed versions produced by Jack Hansen in 1959 and 1960. Many fans prefer Buddy's original guitar and vocal demos to the later overdubbed versions. But the Jack Hansen versions - using some of New York's finest session musicians, who were never really a Combo - are still the ones that most fans remember. There were many flaws in the overdubbing, emphasised by the fact that Buddy Holly never envisaged the tracks he made being used to create commercial releases and thus did not stick to strict tempo timing. And the equipment used to mix the original 3-track tapes was primitive compared to today's computer-based technology. Modern technological advances have enabled us to remix the tracks and errors in timing have also been corrected by producer Chris Hopkins. Chris spent many hours on each track, creating the best versions you will ever hear of the six recordings. All have been remixed into mono and stereo versions ... you will hear instruments you never heard before and the overall quality will surprise you! The LP comes with a four-page illustrated booklet with full details about the recordings and the re-mastering process. Tracks are as follows: Side One MONO: 1. That's What They Say 2. What To Do 3. Peggy Sue Got Married 4. That Makes It Tough 5. Crying Waiting Hoping 6. Learning The Game. Side Two STEREO: 1. That's What They Say 2. Crying Waiting Hoping* 3. Learning The Game 4. Peggy Sue Got Married* 5. What To Do 6. That Makes It Tough (* mono created stereo) This album will also be released on CD around the beginning of September 2011 (RCCD 3060 - see separate listing). The first 500 copies of this release will include a numbered facsimile of the original 1958 Buddy Holly Fan Club Membership card which Buddy and Maria Elena had printed when they formed the first official fan club in late 1958. (Purchase limited to one copy; second and subsequent copies will not include the card.)
