This Foremost release is his second record, the first being on Mercury Records in 1956, "Leave My Sideburns Be", a take-off of "you know who" backed with "Cry-Baby Boogie".  
Two other songs from the same Mercury sessions remained unissued : "Educated Rock And Roll"  and  "What A Night" , the latter finally issued (or re-recorded?) by Foremost Records.
