Notable for its unusual cover, which features a rare photo of Buddy Holly without his signature spectacles, THE DEFINITIVE COLLECTION presents an excellent selection of the rock & roll legend's finest moments, recorded in the brief period between early 1956 and late '58, just months before his death in February of '59. Although Holly's hits--including the vibrant tunes "That'll Be the Day," "Not Fade Away," and "Rave On"--are present, they are chronologically interspersed among lesser-known tracks such as the rockabilly-tinged "Midnight Shift" and the organ-laden "Take Your Time," tracing the entire trajectory of Holly's tragically short career. While not as thorough as the two-disc GOLD set, this 2006 release offers eight more songs than the concise GREATEST HITS, making it the ideal intermediate compilation.
