Norman Petty Studio - Clovis New Mexico - Buddy Holly. Despite the success with his own records, Petty is most famous for his recording studio in Clovis. In his homespun studio, he made 78 and 45 rpm singles for his own musical group and for then-unknown Texan singers Roy Orbison, Buddy Knox, Waylon Jennings, Carolyn Hester and Buddy Holly, with whom he is most closely associated in the public mind. "Sugar Shack" by Jimmy Gilmer and the Fireballs and "Wheels" by the String-A-Longs were recorded at Petty's studio. Petty also had a number of Canadian groups record, including Gainsborough Gallery, Done On Bradstreet and the Happy Feeling, all having performed on the Festival Express.

Petty served as Buddy Holly's recording engineer and also as his first manager and producer until late 1958.
