Oh, Boy! Another Yeah Buddy

Oh, Boy!
Another "Yeah, Buddy!"
"Oh, Boy!" is the 2004 companion release to the original "Yeah, Buddy!" carrying on the tradition of re-interpreting the classic songs of Buddy Holly. "Oh, Boy!" is more rhythm driven and folk/rock inspired than the bluegrass influenced "Yeah, Buddy!" Hear "Peggy Sue", "Rave On", "Rainin In My Heart" and "True Love Ways" get the RE treatment. Eye-popping artwork with a pop-up strat inside and a powerful Holly tribute song "Caprock" by Jim.
