Shorty Rogers made rock-and-roll recordings for RCA as Boots Brown and His Blockbusters.

Quote from Dave Pell, "The Boots Brown dates were for movies but then RCA released them as singles. I don’t know why—maybe to make a double profit or to feed the pipeline for its new 45-rpm format. But you have to remember, at the time it wasn't cool to play that kind of music if you played jazz. That's why Shorty came up with a fake name. I don’t know why he chose Boots Brown or what it meant. I know we didn't want our names on the records. We were too embarrassed."
