This is one of the many instances of that time when I heard the soundtrack album to certain movies long before seeing the actual movie (Young Frankenstein and Up In Smoke come to mind). I wasn't missing too much in this case; the concert sequences are bitchin', but the rest of the movie (to me) plays like a typical '70s sitcom, minus the laugh-track. Aside from that, this album was my first exposure to the music of Buddy Holly, and I was impressed with the songs and performances on it, even if I wasn't to know that it wasn't the real guy. I still loved "That'll Be The Day" the best. Later on, we got this one, and I finally got to hear The Real Deal!
