 I posted about 5 years back about my admiration of Buddy's cut of.... '...handsome man'. However I was never too keen on the flip, if it's 'Slippin n Slidiin' you want, go no further than Little Richard's Specialty cut, not the original, but by far the best.

 I wasn't trying to infer that the video I posted necessarily had that version on the 45. Just stating that "Slippin and Slidin"" was released on a USA 45 which wouldn't be linked to this entry since the sides are different.

That is the original solo version, which was not released anywhere until this boxed set in 1979, and whose only appearance on 45 RPM was this bootleg single from a couple of years later. The US single Coral 62448, by contrast, has the version on my video below – definitely not this one.

YT uploader states from Album "Buddy Holly - Not Fade Away - disc 6 , and implies that its a Fast Version with Band, so did Buddy do a different solo slow version ? (knowing Mr Holly's takes that would not surprise me ) so which one is on the record. It also sounds stereo, I assume the single would have been a mono release but the Coral USA tape was stereo?
Both the slow and fast versions were initially solo – recorded at home just before he left for the fatal tour. The slow version had a backing added by the Fireballs and was released in 1963 on both this single and the Reminiscing LP. Later, the fast one likewise was added to by the Fireballs and was first released in 1969 on the Giant LP. The video for it that you found just misleadingly used the picture of this single.

The slow version was actually a joke: it was intended to be played back at double speed to make him sound like the Chipmunks (whose debut hit "The Chipmunk Song" was just in the charts when he recorded it). This was only realised sometime in the '80s when a bit of speech was noticed on the tape. Strangely though, it works quite well as a radical but accidental reinterpretation of the song.

 The Beatles made a refreshing change from Cliff & The Shadows,Karl Denver,The Springfields,Frank Ifield,Rolf Harris and one or two other British purveyors of lightweight novelties and I suspect that a lot of their early adopters came from that fan base.
I used to think it was only American popular music that was great from 1959-62 but I was underestimating Billy Fury,Shane Fenton,Johnny Kidd,John Leyton,Dave Sampson.I could go on.I certainly don't think there was a desperate need for a musical revolution.The Beatles may well have changed the 'business model' but I can't be bothered thinking in such philistine terms when I listen to music.

 'Ere 'ere rocket78, spot on, I would say about 85% of my stuff is pre 1961/2. I had the Bobby Parker, but sold it in a moment of madness

 @mickey rat: I couldn't have put it better myself - or even as good. 79% of my own 45's were issued 1962 or earlier and am pleased to have this one as well to add to the amazing era. I'm still hopeful that Bobby Parker will suddenly appear in a NZ Charity Shop so I can halve my Wants List.

 Let's not forget the quality of muscicianship from the studio players was ever-present,irrespective of the Jerry Lee Lewis throw away line regarding "Bobbys".ie,instrumentals peaked around this time.There was a plethora of brilliant "new" sounds from 1959-'62 as there was in 1965-'66 I feel.

 Collectors who should know better continue to dismiss that period based on their perception of mainstream pop music based on "the charts" of the time and the words of later pop historians (and Don McLean!) who really were too young to know. As someone who spent a lot of time in the late '50s and early '60s checking out as many released records as I could, I can say it was a period of great innovation, particularly in the area of R&B and early soul music. Discovering artists like Bobby Bland, Solomon Burke, and early Motown artists, plus blues people like Jimmy Reed and John Lee Hooker was a major buzz. One thing I'll give the dreaded Beatles was they were obviously doing exactly what I was - listening to records each of which were worth a hatful of Bobbys (Bobby Parker excepted of course).

I had heard (IINM, years ago on a radio program) that Holly's death gave a boost to aspiring crooner Robert Velline (BKA Bobby Vee).

 Though I also believe it is absolute BS that the "music died" between the plane crash and the Beatles on Ed Sullivan, when the post-plane crash tour came to town on Valentines' Day 1959 the headliners were Jimmy Clanton, Fabian & Frankie Avalon. The girls were happy for that, I guess......

 Knowing the record scene since the early 1980s, "Music Did Die" as for many years the 1959-62 era was dismissed by Record Collectors as "The Bobbys" yet all the wonderful Popcorn Teen R&B sounds that have only really become widely wanted this Century. The best music starts about 1929 & goes into 1993 as far as I see it.

 Two influences on Popular Music died too young, Glenn Miller and Buddy Holly. Yet even if they had lived both music around them was changing, and indeed they were. Buddy was hoping to work with more orchestras almost going into the film score type of writing and away from the 'teen' market. With his inate musical talent and arranging ablity I have no doubt this would have been musically sucessful, but clearly different to what had already been produced. Maybe Frank Sinatra would have sung some of his unwritten songs. who knows.

 At least YOU are still alive Bill and I'm pleased about that. Also time for me to launch (briefly) into one of my favourite rants: the myth about the music dying with Buddy's death, as perpetuated by baby boomer historians, is bullshit. A lot of great records, mostly by black artists came out in the period before The Beatles supposedly saved the world. Mind you, the late fifties and early sixties coincided with my impressionable late teens period and my tastes(?) were cemented in those years. I still remain unimpressed by the so-called British Invasion.

 This has got to be the best version of Slippin' & Slidin'. Beats the faster version by far.

 Yes the music was in very low key (yes I know) but it was four years later four boys from Liverpool England changed all that and the rest as they say is history

 Scary thought that it's all of 56 years! Though it was 3-2-1959 in the USA, here in Australia, we got the news as the calendar showed 4-2-1959! The day the music died!

 Brown Eyed Handsome Man is certainly a top tune. Probably my favourite too.

RIP Buddy - 55 years today.

 I forgot to mention that Mr. Marples was the one that got our Rodney the demo copy in advance of its release so he could brag about it at school. Tut tut. Misuse of influence.

 The last time I saw this disc was in March 1963 and it was the promo copy brought into school by a certain Rodney Marples, nephew of the unlamented Minister of Transport of that era.

 In total agreement with Bill Mann's comments and my favourite Buddy Holly record.

 Although Chuck Berry is one of my all time favourites, Buddy beat Chuck at his own game on the topside, this is a really great record, one of Buddy's best. Chuck's version is awful, his guitar just does not flow as usual. Bad day at the office perhaps.
