    Description

    Big Bopper "Red Riding Hood" Original Music Scores. Unlike the other two lots we're offering of original handwritten scores from The Big Bopper, this lot has two scores, and each unfolds to two pages, one scored for "1st Alto", the other for "3rd Alto". The song was the flipside of The Bopper's second chart hit, "Big Bopper's Wedding". Like the others, this was in J. P. Richardson's briefcase on that fateful night in February, 1959, when he, Buddy Holly, and Richie Valens lost their lives in a plane crash. The Bopper's briefcase contents were some of just a few items that survived that crash. It's Rock and Roll history, and comes with a letter of authenticity from J. P. Richardson, Jr.
