The unprecedented success of The Buddy Holly Story, released in the immediate aftermath of the singer's death in a plane crash in 1959 soon had executives at Coral scouring for other material they could put out for the public. A total of twelve tracks were unearthed, including several that had not been completed, to which studio overdubs were added to make them accessible. The album, whilst not hitting the heights of its predecessor, still made the Top Ten during its chart run and further enhanced Holly's reputation.
