• The CRICKETS - I Fought the Law

After The Crickets split with Buddy Holly in late 1958 shortly before his death they continued to cut great records. This unique compilation features everything they recorded between 1958-60 including the 'In Style With The Crickets' LP, plus outtakes, alternative takes, and a number of related solo releases.

Includes the UK hits, 'When You Ask About Love', 'Baby My Heart' and 'More Than I Can Say'. Also included is their celebrated original version of 'I Thought the Law', later popularised by The Bobby Fuller Four and The Clash.

Many of these sides are collectors rarities and are hard to find elsewhere, a couple having never previously appeared on CD.
