    Buddy Holly "That'll Be The Day" Pink Label Promo Mono LP Decca 8707 (1958). Buddy Holly's first major label deal was with Decca, with whom he signed in January 1956. But his five Decca singles went nowhere. One of those was "That'll Be The Day," a different version of which was recorded by Brunswick in 1957 as by "The Crickets," and which became Holly's first and only #1 hit in late 1957. Decca became to Holly as Vee-Jay became to the Beatles -- two years after his Decca recording sessions in 1956, and after Buddy had become a star, his old label repackaged the 1956 tunes as this LP, one of the hardest of Holly albums to find. It's the last album released prior to his death on February 3, 1959. This is the cleanest copy of this album we have seen, and it's a pink label promo copy to boot! Condition: NM 8/ EX 7.
