The Buddy Holly Story was on last night and I was reminded of how much I love this song. It was recorded around Valentine's day 1958 in Clovis, New Mexico. Vi Petty is credited as the piano player and his solo is as much of a hook as anything else in this track. Likewise, I think this song is as sonically perfect as it can get, and the warmth of the track is something that is missing in today's digital world.

And for more warm music, our sister site Newstalgia has for its mid-week concert offering, Orchestre National de France with Ricardo Muti playing Chabrier, De Falla, Ginastera and Ravel.
