Holly In the Hills was originally released on the Coral label
in 1965 and Giant in 1969 on the MCA record label.
Holly In the Hills was the result of the acquisition by Coral Records
of undiscovered Buddy Holly recordings for release to his legion of fans
everywhere. Most of the songs on this LP were recorded in 1955 and are
the product of a personal and musical friendship between Buddy and his
boyhood friend, Bob Montgomery.
Giant was put together after Buddys death, using tapes
brought in by Buddys parents which were then transferred to
a multi-track recorder. New instruments were then added by some greats
from the music world: George Tomsco on guitar, Jimmy Gilmer on guitar,
Doug Roberts on drums and Stan Lark on bass.
