“For years the rumor was that Hen Gates and His Gaters were in fact the Dizzy Gillespie band. In fact Hen Gates is Freddie Mitchell and the tracks on the album credited to them, Lets All Dance To Rock And Roll, are simply old Derby masters given new titles. When Derby filed for bankruptcy in 1954, Freddie Mitchell masters had been sold cheaply and had already been reissued on several labels before they turned up on Masterseal who thought they could pull a fast one and pass them off as tracks recorded by Hen Gates and His Gators who, according to the LP sleevenotes, were ‘a group of talented young Rock ‘N Roll musicians.’ ” [Source]

Mama Can I Go Out Tonight, Jo Ann Campbell (1959) Before you roll your eyes, Bo Diddley wrote that song – that’s him on guitar, with King Curtis on tenor sax and Jerome Green on the maracas. It was recorded for her 1959 album I’m Nobody’s Baby. Campbell had a promising career as a dancer when she transitioned to rock and roll. Promoted by Alan Freed (and appearing in his showcase movie Go Johnny Go!) she had a successful recording career, charting hits in the UK as well as the US.
