    Biography :

    "After School Rock" c/w "Sentimental Baby", a master acquired in May 1958 from a New York song publisher named Joe "Happy" Goday. If 'After School Rock' sounded like middle-aged vision of rock 'n' roll, that's because it was conceived by men with ties to the past struggling to keep pace with the fast moving trends of the late 1950s.

    Penned by Lawrence "88" Keys, a jazzy pianist/singer who'd made his first recordings in the early 1940s, 'After School Rock' almost certainly featured black session vocalists drawn from a pool of New York regulars collectively known as the Cues. The crude, indistinct recording quality suggests the songs may have been publisher's song demos issued as masters. (The Dore Story)
