This acetate is the property of KSEL disc jockey, Doc Stewart, who was friendly with Buddy Holly in Lubbock, Texas. According to Mr Stewart, Holly was keen to cut these two tracks and was in a hurry to do so before he left for New York so the two of them went to Dave Hester's recording studio in Lubbock and cut this acetate. Apparently, only two copies were produced, Holly kept one and Stewart kept this one.
The two tracks on this acetate, Brown Eyed Handsome Man and Bo Diddley, were overdubbed and released after Holly's death, and both became hit singles. This acetate contains the original undubbed versions.
