  1. Great Blog! Rock-A-Bye-Baby Blues was co-written by pianist Mancel Tierney. Often you will see it credited to Billy Jack and Louis Tierney. This is incorrect. Louis was Mancel's brother and a long time fiddle and sax player for Wills. However, Louis was not in the Playboys 1950, when Rock-A-Bye Baby Blues was written and recorded.
