    Description

    Buddy Holly Rare Acetate - "Gotta Roll"/ "I Don't Care Anymore" (Soundcraft, 1955). Months before Decca signed the teenage Buddy Holly to a contract [after he'd been "discovered" when he opened for Elvis Presley in an October, 1955 Lubbock show], and 1½ years before Holly's first historic recording s at Norman Petty's studio in Clovis, New Mexico, he went into the Nesman Studios in Wichita Falls, Texas with his friends Bob Montgomery and Larry Welborn and recorded the tunes on this two-sided 78 rpm acetate. If you don't recognize the titles, "Gotta Roll" later became "Down The Line", while "I Don't Care Anymore" morphed into "You and I Are Through". Rock and Roll history in the making! The acetate's in VG 5 condition. From the Maria Elena Holly Collection of Buddy Holly Memorabilia.
