I found this song while looking up a on YouTube. Many of you Stateside would know this song from years gone by as a favorite "First Dance" song at weddings. All the info on this song is available on wikipedia (Link). I knew Buddy Holly could sing but this song is something else. It just stopped me in my tracks the first time I played it on my setup. Buddy Holly was right there in my room the minute he starts singing. A good old 16/44.1 file is making a complete mockery of hires audio. What have we lost on our way to here? ... the extended version of the song, listeners can hear Holly preparing to sing. The audio starts with Norman Petty's wife (who also played on Buddy Holly's song "Everyday") saying "Yeah, we're rolling." A piano player and a tenor saxophone player start to play some notes, and Holly mutters "Okay," and clears his throat. The producer yells "Quiet, boys!" to everyone else in the room, and at the very end of the talkback, the producer says "Pitch, Ernie" to signal the piano player to give Holly his starting note, a B-flat. - (extract from wikipedia)
