An Album-By-Album DISCOGRAPHY referencing all 6 CDs of
"Not Fade Away The Complete Studio Recordings And More"
A 2010 Hip-O Select BUDDY HOLLY Box Set.

THIRTEEN of his album releases name-checked and pictured in the Hip-O Select booklet have been referenced using an alphabetical system – from his debut LP “The Chirping Crickets” in November 1957 (A) through to the 2CD set “Down The Line Rarities” issued in January 2009 (N). I’ve kept to this.

Also - as you can imagine - there have been countless compilations for the years inbetween - so huge amounts of track-duplication has taken place. I have not attempted to fill in the gaps (used only the Box Set references).

Last - while the Hip-O Box set doesn't provide a 'proper' Discography (as say a Bear Family Box set would) - it does at least tell us where each track is from - and I've found only 3 errors in it to date.
