Gene Vincent: At Town Hall Party DVD (0)

Video von Gene Vincent - At Town Hall Party DVD (0)

(DVD with 12-page booklet, DVD-pak, 18 tracks, playing time: 47:42) -- 
'Town Hall Party' was among the first of the country music shows to be seen on U.S. television, making its debut in early 1952 and running until early 1961. Staged every Saturday in a theatre in Compton, a suburb of Los Angeles, the stage was made up to look like an old barn, thus continuing the traditions of the various live shows that were first heard on the radio airwaves three decades earlier. 'Town Hall Party' was created with its own cast of regular performers and musicians, boasting a house that was virtually a 'who's who' of the West Coast scene comprising such as Joe Maphis, Merle Travis, Skeets McDonald, Johnny Bond and Tommy Duncan. 

Jay Stewart (who later hosted the TV quiz show 'Let's Make A Deal'), and Tex Ritter were the MCs. The weekly show presented an equally impressive guest list. Among the many guests to appear were Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline, Eddie Cochran, The Collins Kids, Freddie Hart, Wanda Jackson, George Jones, Merle Lindsay, Bob Luman, Carl Perkins, Jim Reeves, Marty Robbins, Hank Snow and Gene Vincent. -- Now 'Town Hall Party' is reborn on DVD. Launched in 2002, this continuing DVD series present both individual artists' performances, compiled from different appearances on 'Town Hall Party', and complete cast shows selected from specific dates. Completely remastered, and presented with full colour booklets, these releases fully captured the atmosphere, artistry and sounds of a bygone country music age.

Artist description "Vincent, Gene"

Gene Vincent

 

Geboren als Vincent Eugene Craddock am 11.2.1935 in Munden Point, Norfolk, im US-Staat Virginia. Mit 15 machte er sich älter, weil er zur Armee wollte und wurde im Korea-Krieg eingesetzt. Bei einem Motorradunfall wurde er 1953 so schwer verletzt, dass er für den Rest seines Lebens immer gehbehindert ist.

Ein Jahr später wurde Gene Vincent deswegen aus der Armee entlassen. Für die nächsten 2 Jahre wirkte er bei verschiedenen lokalen Rundfunksendungen mit. 1956 bekam er seine große Chance, als er den Discjockey Sheriff Tex Davis kennenlernte. Gemeinsam komponierten sie den Song „Be-Bop-A-Lula ". Im August desselben Jahres war die Platte in der ganzen Welt in den Hitparaden. „Race with the Devil ", „Blue-Jean-Bop " und „Jumps Giggles and Shouts " waren seine großen Hits. Außerdem drehte er 2 Filme: „The Girl can 't help it” (1957 mit Little Richard) und „Hot Rod Gang " (1959).

1960 kam Gene Vincent nach England auf Tournee mit seinem Freund Eddie Cochran. Am 17.4.1960 fuhren beide im Taxi zum Flughafen und verunglückten. Eddie Cochran starb dabei, Gene Vincent wurde schwer verletzt ins Krankenhaus eingeliefert. Von diesen Verletzungen hat sich Gene Vincent nie mehr richtig erholt. Zeitweise wurde sogar befürchtet, dass sein linkes Bein amputiert werden müsse. Im Oktober 1971 starb er, ist heute aber immer noch unvergessen. Erst 1974 wurde noch eine Single veröffentlicht: „Roll over Beethoven ".

Tremendous live footage!

In my opinion the best 1950s live footage of the legendary Gene Vincent - the real king of Rock 'n'Roll! Even if the sound quality sometimes is not that good, this DVD is a definitive must-have in the collection of every serious Rock'n'Roll music fan!
