It’s Always Been This Way

The following is a phone call Buddy Holly made to Paul Cohen, the head of Decca Records, about his being dropped and them enforcing the 5 year non-rerecord policy. Holly would go on to record for Brunswick and Coral. One of the songs was “That’ll Be The Day.” Holly brilliantly did it under the name The Crickets as a way to bypass the 5 year non-rerecord restriction – though when it was a hit – it helped that Brunswick and Coral were subsidiaries of Decca to help him not get sued.
