Gene Vincent lived his life for Rock ‘n’ Roll and will always be remembered for Be Bop A Lula, one of the greatest recordings of the 1950s. It madeGene Vincent an instant star and launched an extraordinary rollercoaster of a career that always seemed destined to end in tragedy. Along the way he recorded more than 200 songs including many of the finest and best loved Rock ‘n’ Roll classics such as
Bluejean Bop, Lotta Lovin’ and Dance To The Bop. He became an enormously influential figure, especially in Europe, known for his black leather image, hell-raising lifestyle and the sheer brilliance of his wild stage act. Here for the first time are the complete studio masters of Gene Vincent gathered together on eight CDs and covering the 16 year period from 1956 to 1971.
All ofGene Vincentrecordings for Capitol, Columbia, Challenge, Forever/ Playground, Dandelion, Kama Sutra and B&C are presented in chronological order, including previously unissued stereo versions. Together, they form an incredible body of work and a lasting memorial to this tortured genius. The set is accompanied by a hardcoverbook containing a detailed discography, lavishly illustrated with a wonderful array of rare and exciting photos plus the full story ofGene Vincentamazing life and the background to each of his recordings by Ian Wallis.
