 Yes, William Rosenauer was Woody Thorne. A friend of mine knows him. He ran a flower shop in Maryland for a while also, I believe.

 Interesting that this one got a release in Britain on Vogue. Optimistic sellers like to call this record rockabilly but to my ears it's teen pop in more-or-less Neil Sedaka territory. Session guitarist Rene Hall was obviously behind it. Renhall (ASCAP) and Fore-site (BMI) were both his publishing firms, he part produced both sides and songwriter Gertrude "Sugar" Hall was his wife. Nat Goodman turns up on quite a few labels over the years, but the mystery folk here are Woody Thorne and songwriter William John Rosenauer ("Rosenbauer" on label). "Woody Thorne" never made another record as far as I know and Rosenauer doesn't turn up again in copyright registrations until many years later. However there's an aging Will Rosenauer who sings and plays easy-listening piano in Maryland restaurants and piano bars nowadays (catch him on youtube) and, sticking my neck out here, I'd guess "Woody Thorne" may have been a one-off pseudonym he used in his young rock & roll days. The piano break on Sadie Lou is heavily influenced by Jerry Lee Lewis and a million miles from his current style, if in fact it is the same person. And Teenagers In Love was featured in Tarantino's Pulp Fiction movie, generating some unexpected royalties I would imagine.

The A side. I like the other side more, though.
