BIG BOPPER
"HELLO BABY - YOU KNOW WHAT I LIKE"

The ultimate tribute to the artist who died alongside Buddy Holly and Ritchie Valens on 'The Day The Music Died'! -- Includes the all-time smash hit Chantilly Lace! Plus the Big Bopper's original version of the hit he wrote for George Jones, White Lightning -- Also includes ultra-rare recordings by the Big Bopper - as well as tribute records and sequels by Eddie Cochran, rockabilly legend Ray Campi, and Jayne Mansfield (yes, THAT Jayne Mansfield) -- When the Big Bopper died in the plane crash that took the lives of Buddy Holly and Ritchie Valens, he'd scored just two hits, but his tragic death on 'The Day The Music Died' ensured his immortality. And it turns out he had a far more interesting career than most one or two hit wonders. For one thing, he wrote several other hits. His original version of George Jones' #1 country hit White Lightning is included here (he also wrote but never recorded Johnny Preston's #1 pop hit Running Bear). Sadly, he never saw either song top the charts. But this generously full CD includes a lot of Bopper, starting with all known recordings: his unissued-atthe-time first recording from 1954, his fabulously rare early rock 'n' roll singles for Mercury, his original recording of Chantilly Lace and the follow-up, and his original LP. But there's more: Big Bopper sequels and tributes include Eddie Cochran's Three Stars, Ray Campi's The Man I Met (A Tribute To The Big Bopper), Donna Dameron's sequel, Bopper 486009, and even JayneMansfield's Chantilly Lace spin-off, That Makes It. Add to that, rare and unpublished photos from the Big Bopper's family as well as the first comprehensive biography by Johnette Duff.
