This album features the complete existing demos cut by Buddy Holly before he signed his first commercial recording contract in January 1956, including the four rockabilly demos sent to Nashville in December 1955 resulting in his first contract with US Decca.

Buddy plays rhythm, lead guitar and mandolin, accompanying himself, Bob Montgomery, Jack Neal, Sonny Curtis and Ben Hall; the complete Lubbock and Wichita Falls demos, made before sessions in Nashville, Clovis and New York City and before the influence of The Crickets, Norman Petty and Maria Elena. Includes his first known recording c.1949 singing Hank Snow's "My Two-Timin' Woman" both in the usual edited version and the rarer unedited cut. Also features covers of Bill Monroe, Flatt & Scruggs and Elvis hits and celebrated Holly-billy such as "Gotta Get You Near Me Blues", "Down The Line", "I Wanna Play House With You" and the early demos of songs he later cut commercially - "Don't Come Back Knockin'", "Love Me", "I Guess I Was Just A Fool" and "Baby, Won't You Come Out Tonight".
