Lowell Fulson recorded every shade of blues imaginable. Polished urban blues, rustic two-guitar duets with his younger brother Martin, funk-tinged grooves that pierced the mid-’60s charts, even an unwise cover of the Beatles’ “Why Don’t We Do It in the Road!” Clearly, the veteran guitarist, who was active for more than half-a-century, wasn’t afraid to experiment. Perhaps that’s why his last couple of discs for Rounder were so vital and satisfying — and why he remained an innovator for so long.

Elvis Presley may be the single most important figure in American 20th century popular music. Not necessarily the best, and certainly not the most consistent. But no one could argue with the fact that he was the musician most responsible for popularizing rock & roll on an international level. Viewed in cold sales figures, his impact was phenomenal. Dozens upon dozens of international smashes from the mid-’50s to the mid-’70s, as well as the steady sales of his catalog and reissues since his death in 1977, may make him the single highest-selling performer in history.

The “Crickets” started out as pure fiction — the name a ruse used by Buddy Holly, Jerry Allison, and Joe B. Mauldin to avoid the provisions of a 1956 contract that Holly had signed with Decca Records, that would have prevented the release of their then-new recording of “That’ll Be the Day” on the Brunswick label. The name stuck, and for the next 15 months, there were records by the Crickets and records by Buddy Holly — which were virtually interchangeable — and they were billed as Buddy Holly & The Crickets. By the end of 1958, however, the references to “Buddy Holly and the Crickets” were becoming valid in the worst possible way — Holly’s shifting and expanding musical interests, coupled with his move to New York and marriage to Maria Elena Santiago, and the differing relationships that the three had with their manager, Norman Petty, led to a split between Holly and his bandmates in the months immediately prior to Holly’s death in a plane crash on February 3, 1959.
