      • First ever Buddy Holly & the Crickets television appearance!
        Sadly, no copies of this appearance are known to survive. People who saw this show remember the group appearing without their instruments. The Crickets stood on stage lip synching to the record. This led people to believe that they were a vocal group.
        For many years, people thought Jerry and Joe were singing on The Crickets record releases!

      • The group appeared on this show as "the Crickets" (no "Buddy Holly" in the name) which is the way they were credited on all of the 1957-58 Brunswick record releases. By singing lead on the Crickets' "That'll Be The Day", Buddy was in violation of his 1956 Decca contract. He was trying to hide this fact so he remained unbilled during 1957. They were also called "The Crickets" on the 1957 Ed Sullivan show. This matter was settled with Decca (and Cedarwood publishing) on January 7, 1958 where they got the rights to "Think It Over". On the 28-Dec-57 Arthur Murray Show the group was finally introduced as Buddy Holly and The Crickets.

      • "That'll Be The Day" was still rising on the charts when they made this appearence. On August 22, 1957 Buddy was notified that "That'll Be The Day" had reached 1/2 million in sales. The record peaked at number 1 on September 23, 1957. (It would go on to sell 2 million copies).
