On April 16th, 1956, Buddy Holly’s first single ‘Blue Days, Black Nights’, was released.

The track was later featured on That’ll Be The Day the third album from Buddy Holly. Decca, Holly’s first major record label, after failing to produce a hit single from Holly’s early recordings, packaged these 1956 tunes after he had some success with recordings from the Brunswick and Coral labels.
