Buddy Holly v. Decca
Buddy Holly phones Decca Records to request that the label return masters of some songs the label chose not to release so he can shop for a new label. There is some poignancy in how earnest and reasonable Buddy sounds, contrasted with the incredulity of his label correspondent. The phone call took place in 1957, but presumably this same phone call could have taken place between artist and label yesterday. Except today, the label would ask for a 360 deal.
