Note: According to Johnnie Adams (the bass player of Bobby Brown & the Curios/Ray Coble & the JazzKatz) there should be at least four unreleased (and thus far undiscovered) 1958 recordings by The Curios produced by Scotty Moore and Slim Wallace at Fernwood Studio, Memphis, TN: "I'm Tore Up" (sung by Bobby Brown), "The Red Satellite" (sung by Bobby Brown), "Rock And Roll Ghost" (sung by Ray Coble, poss. accompanied by The Curios) and "Suppose We Try" (sung by Ray Coble, poss. accompanied by The Curios, written by Johnnie Adams). Several other unidentified c. 1958 demo recordings (made at Stereo Sound Studio, St. Louis, MI) may also exist. In addition, various previously unissued 1960's-1970's songs by Bobby Brown are nowadays available for digital download at iTunes, Amazon, etc.
