Holly Days is the second album by guitarist Denny Laine, released in 1977. It is a tribute to singer-songwriter Buddy Holly.

Background[edit]

The album was produced by Paul McCartney, who also played most of the instruments on the album. Due to the rudimentary recording methods used to capture the "Buddy Holly style", only tracks 2 and 3 were actually in stereo.
