1957: Buddy Holly And The Crickets begin recording "That'll Be The Day" with producer Norman Petty at his studio in Clovis, New Mexico. Holly had recorded the song with his band The Three Tunes in Nashville in 1956, but Decca Records brass didn't like the result and refused to release it. Holly's new version would become his signature tune, rising to #1 in both the US and the UK.
