    Ivan "Real Wild Child" 45 RPM Group of 2 (1958) This rockin' little record, released under the name Ivan, was in fact Buddy Holly and the Crickets. The song was originally released as "Wild One" by Australian artist Johnny O'Keefe; Buddy and the boys heard it while on tour Down Under (also appearing that tour was Jerry Lee Lewis, who cut his own version). Ivan was Crickets drummer Jerry Allison's middle name, and he handled the vocal chores, while Buddy overdubbed lead guitar. According to some experts, this record was intended as a parody of Ricky Nelson, at the time teenaged and very nasal in his delivery. Compare this record with Nelson's "Stood Up" and see for yourself! Included in this lot are a promo copy in MT 9 condition, and a commercial copy in NM 8, both backed with "Oh You Beautiful Doll."
