    Boots Brown and his Blockbusters/ Dan Drew and his Daredevils "Rock That Beat" Mono LP Groove 1000 (1958). Such an interesting story behind this project, we'll just let you get the full details by going online for a closeup of the back cover of this rare album. The basic idea was top-notch jazz musicians doing a Rock record. The idea was so intriguing yet unnerving to most of the musicians that they agreed only if they could remain anonymous at the time! Side 1 (the Boots West Coast crew) included Shorty Rogers, Bud Shank, Gerry Mulligan, Marty Paich, and J. J. Johnson, to name a few. Side 2 (the Drew East Coast crew) included Eddie Bert, Osie Johnson, Al Cohn, and others. Quite a story and quite a record! This may have also been the first Groove (an RCA subsidiary) album. Remarkable condition for a remarkable album -- Condition: NM 8/ NM 8.
