Buddy Holly & The Crickets - You've Got Love

 On this day September 27, 1957 at Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma City, Buddy Holly and the Crickets began two days of recording sessions that produced the tracks "You've Got Love," "Rock Me My Baby," and "Maybe Baby."

One of the many marvellous tracks that came out on "The Chirping Crickets" album in 1958 in the days when The Crickets really did "chirp" courtesy of The Picks or The Roses. The track was one of a quartet that The Crickets recorded when they met up on tour with Norman Petty, who borrowed a US airforce base to set up his mobile recording equipment. Later, the dubbed backing vocals of The Picks gave the track its finished sound.

Buddy Holly plays a ringing guitar solo on the number, which was
written by fellow Texans Roy Orbison and Teen King member Johnny Wilson. Months earlier, Johnny "Peanuts" Wilson had recorded his own version as the flip of "Cast Iron Arm".

The Holly/Crickets version got belated recognition as a minor UK hit single when released in April 24, 1964. (Info Wiki & A-Z of Buddy Holly)
