Although NORMAN PETTY is chiefly remembered as a record producer, his name is synonymous with Buddy Holly & The Crickets, he was also a musician and successful recording artist in his own right, albeit in a light, easy listening musical style which was far removed from R&R.

He formed the original Norman Petty Trio in the late 40s, and they went on to enjoy considerable success during the 50s.

Although invariably billed as a trio (Norman on organ, his wife Vi on piano, and Jack Vaughn on guitar), they were often a quartet, augmented by either Dave Alldred or Mike Mitchell on drums.

This compilation presents the Very Best of the Trio's recordings between 1954-60 and includes all their hits and best-known numbers, viz: 'Mood Indigo' (their biggest chart record), 'On The Alamo', 'Almost Paradise', 'The First Kiss', 'Moondreams' (which features Buddy Holly on guitar) and Vi Petty's cover of Holly's 'True Love Ways'.
