Rave On Buddy Holly can now be listened to in its entirety on NPR’s First Listen. I already featured Florence and the Machine’s beautiful interpretation of “Not Fade Away” and there are some other wonderful covers in the mix as well. A couple that stood out are “Crying, Waiting, Hoping” sung by Karen Elson, “Changing All Those Changes” performed by Nick Lowe, “Everyday” sung by Fiona Apple and Jon Brion and “That’ll Be The Day” sung by Modest Mouse. There are some nice performances and arrangements on the disc, bringing a fresh spin to a classic rock icons discography.
