Hello, my friends and comrade music-lovers.




Three months of targeted research here and there, as time permitted,
went into my putting together this list of recorded songs, along with their titles and artists. Decades of published music history from Buddy Holly and other artists make up this list. The internet is full of lists, databases, and other forms of information. However, I have noticed that these lists are incomplete. Some of these sources seem to have started out with a bang, but then suddenly stopped before adding the latest items.

By incorporating my own collection, which because of all the years and time invested might appear to be quite extensive, I have attempted to draw up as complete a list as possible. I have thoroughly and painstakingly exhausted all available and existing information to my knowledge. Although the result might seem impressive, in actuality its' completeness is temporary. Only for the moment. Aren't we all lucky that new songs and artists just keep popping in out of the blue at random?  Our smorgasbord is infinite.  "Buddy Holly Reloaded" is a prime example of what can suddenly materialize to add a rainbow of joy to our ears and hearts. 

Whoever wants to contribute and help to expand this comprehensive
Buddy Holly database is cordially invited, and encouraged to send me
any information that you think I should add.

After all, this is a work in progress. A never ending story. And I like it !
 
One last thing. If you see a mistake or error that I might have made, I would appreciate your correction with source mentioned, please. 


                                          Thank you so much,




                                                      HANS

                      Liebe Freunde der einzig wahren Musik.



Meine gezielten Recherchen haben mehr als 3 Monate gedauert.
Dabei habe ich Jahrzehnte veröffentlichter Musikgeschichte in einer Liste zusammengetragen. Alles, was von Buddy Holly und anderen Künstlern veröffentlicht worden ist.



Das Internet ist voll von Listen, Datenbanken und anderen Informations-
quellen, die aber fast alle vom Umfang her zu klein, somit unvollständig sind. Viele Quellen haben gut begonnen, dann aber irgendwann aufgehört, Neues hinzuzufügen. 


 
Ich habe aus allen vorhandenen Informationen eine komplette Liste erstellt. Dazu habe ich meine eigene Sammmlung, die in diesem Punkt sehr umfangreich ist, in die Cover Song Liste mit eingearbeitet (Daten und .mp3 Dateien).



Das Ergebnis kann sich sehen lassen, ist komplett aber nur als Momentaufnahme zu bewerten. Noch heute kommen neue Künstler hinzu, was ich sehr begrüße. So z.B. "Buddy Holly Reloaded" aus Hamburg mit ihrer ersten CD am 1. März 2010. Das ist schon lange her, aber absolut erwähnenswert.




Wer helfen möchte, diese größte Datenbank in Sachen Buddy Holly im Internet weiter auszubauen, ist herzlichst eingeladen, Informationen an mich zu schicken. Dies ist eine nie endende Geschichte, an der ich großen Gefallen finde. Das ist sogar viel mehr, eine echte Herausforderung für einen Fan der ersten Stunde.




Wer für mich Berichtigungen meiner Liste hat, wird gebeten, dies unter Nennung der Quelle zu tun, damit dies etwas wird und bleibt, das in seiner Art einmalig ist und qualitativ meinen Ansprüchen an dieses Projekt genügt.




                                          Herzlichen Dank !

                                          " Ain't Got No Home "


Ain't_got_no_home_Clarence_Frogman_Henry.jpg
                        
   Clarence "Frogman" Henry
was a New
   Orleans R&B singer. "Ain't Got No Home,"
   from 1956, was his first big hit and the one
   that won him his nickname "Frogman." 
   Henry could both 'sing like a frog' and 'sing
   like a girl.'
