Holly Days 2

Ads for a nearly-forgotten Paul McCartney-produced Buddy Holly covers LP by Wings mainstay Denny Laine. Paul and Linda back Denny throughout and there are plenty of odd production choices and arrangements in its half hour runtime. Good stuff if you can locate a copy. Just ignore its hideous sleeve. 1977.
