Additional comments and sources

No information could be found on Gabe Drake, other than he recorded a number of cover versions of rock and roll hits for budget labels. The EP listed on Discogs is undated. The site however lists a 1957 album release: https://www.discogs.com/Gabe-DrakeCues-Jimmy-Breedlove-Delbert-BarkerLimelighter…


I am, however, going with the EP release, even if undated, because the user comments under the album index indicate the album doesn't actually list artists and it's believed the track listing was compiled by someone who possesses the album. But as there are no YouTube videos available taken from the album or the EP it is not known if they are the same performance. I have an audio file of Gabe Drake performing RATC so I can confirm it's a straight cover, but I don't have enough info to go with submitting the Hollywood Records album as the original release.
