OTD April 16 - Buddy Holly
22 / 44
Brunswick Records

1956: Buddy Holly releases his first single, "Blue Days, Black Nights." Low sales of the single, plus a second single, December's "Modern Don Juan," convinced Decca to shelve the remaining tracks Holly had recorded earlier in the year in Nashville. Holly would break out with the song "That'll Be the Day" the following year.
