  1. Outhouse was a subsidiary of Roadhouse.

    “Good Rockin’ Daddy” was by The Heartbreakers. They recorded the song for RCA in 1951 oer 1952.

    Outhouse 101 was offered in the net several times.

    “Good Rockin’ Daddy” also appeared on the Roadhouse LP 5002 (The Heartbreakers – Big News).

    • I appreciate the Heartbreakers’ recording date and Outhouse label connection to Roadhouse.

      The a-side credited by the book as “King Bees” are said to be the ‘5’ or Five King Bees as listed by credible sellers. These sources are probably accurate, but original Outhouse scans are needed for me to change the post to the ‘5’ or Five King Bees .
