Big Al Whittle Key folk figures absent from Wikipedia? (124* d) RE: Key folk figures absent from Wikipedia? 02 Apr 21

I think maybe you're playing those Buddy Holly tracks inside your head without the use of a cd player

Jagger's version of Not Fade Away...?

James Taylor or don Maclean's version of Every day....?

that version of Love Hurts in Tutti Frutti

Even if you think these versions are vastly inferior to Buddy's, I'm sure Buddy and his family would be thrilled knowing that artists of this stature wanted to try to do their own interpretation. Or for that matter that Joe Bloggs down the folk club related to the song enough to want to play it.

for a songwriter there is no higher tribute. It is the start of your song's entry into the folk process. perhaps if we heard what singers were making of our songs in a couple of hundred years - we would not recognise our creation - but the process starts somewhere.
