Notes

Mitchell was born in the Algiers section of New Orleans. He was a popular recording artist in the 1950s and early 1960s, making records for Imperial Records, Show Biz Records and Rip Records. He first recorded in his teens with the do-wop group “The Toppers”, which was broken up as most of the members were drafted. Mitchell’s single “Try Rock ‘n Roll,” hit the top 20 of the US Billboard R&B chart in 1956. Many of his sessions were arranged by Dave Bartholomew. His single “I’m Gonna Be a Wheel Someday” was a hit, pre dating the more famous cover of the tune by Fats Domino and got Mitchell an appearance on American Bandstand.

In the early 1980s he did radio shows at WWOZ.
