Carol Hughes signed with Roulette Records in July 1957 when she was about fourteen years old, placing her on the same roster as fellow teen rock and roller Frankie Lymon. She cut several sides, all of which were teen-oriented. Her version of “Lend Me Your Comb” came out close on the heels of Carl Perkins’s (Roulette actually publicized hers as “the Original.”) She also appeared on several television shows, including the Arthur Murray Dance Party.

“Pick Another Baby” / “Never Go ’way.” Roulette 4031 (1957).

“Lend Me Your Comb” / “First Date.” Roulette 4041 (1958).

“A Look at Roulette’s Artists.” Billboard, 3 February 1958, 16.
