Rock Baby Rock

This Shasta is the re-issue of the initial release on the Shastone label launched in May 1958 by Old-time country singer and cowboy actor Jimmy Wakely   After few releases Shastone was renamed Shasta, keeping the same catalog numbering.

On the "Rock Baby Rock" side, Wakely shares with Gershensen the composer credit (he wasn't on the Shastone credit).  This is likely Joseph "Joe" Gershenson,  who headed the Universal Pictures music department throughout the 1950s and 60s.
