Wow, this is great!

Buddy Holly is an off-stage character in "The Witch of Waxahachie" and in a sequel which is being shopped around he comes front and center, as President of the Republic of Texas.

I was doing some research on YouTube and found this. Holly wrote many nearly-perfect rock and roll tunes, but I've always thought "Think it Over" is one of the best, perhaps only surpassed by "Rave On".

This is NOT the version of "Think it Over" that charted, this was the fourth take. The one that was actually mastered was the next take, the fifth, and featured the piano as the bridge.
