    Buddy Holly "That'll Be the Day" Green Label Promo 45 (Decca 30434). This promo 45 originally came from Maria Elena Holly's personal collection. This is Buddy Holly's version with the Three Tunes, which didn't go very far in 1956. The following year with the Crickets, Holly would have a number one hit with the song and begin making music history. This copy from Buddy's own collection was displayed at one time; the B-side is glued to a black cardboard backing. The A-side appears NM 8. COA from Heritage Auctions.
