A TRIP ALONG BUDDY'S RECORDING PLACES
on tour, on their way from Memphis, TN to Tulsa, OK, the Crickets make
a stop on Saturday 28 September 1957 in Oklahoma City. Norman Petty had
just performed with his trio at the US Airforce base in Oklahoma City.
Norman had taken some portable equipment from Clovis to the Airforce base
in Oklahoma to record some songs. In the Officers Club Lounge of the base
Buddy Holly, Joe B. Mauldin, Jerry Allison and Niki Sullivan recorded:
"An Empty Cup", "Rock Me My Baby", "You’ve
Got Love", "Maybe Baby". Backing vocals of the Picks were
added later in Clovis and all four songs were released at the time on
the Chirping Crickets album.
