Gene Vincent: Gene Vincent & The Blue Caps (LP, 200g Vinyl)

Video von Gene Vincent - Gene Vincent & The Blue Caps (LP, 200g Vinyl)

(2009/Doxy) 12 tracks - HQ 200g Vinyl reproduction of his 1957 Capitol album.
 -
Rock'n'Roll pioneer and rockabilly king, Gene Vincent, formed his Blue Caps in Norfolk, Virginia with 'Wee' Willie Williams on rhythm guitar, Jack Neal on bass, Dickie Harrell on drums, Paul Peek on vocals and guitar and the amazing Cliff Gallup on lead guitar. The 'Blue Caps' name was a nod to Vincent's past in the US Navy, who traded in his own Navy 'blue cap' to become one of rock & roll's original bad boys.
His first hit came in 1956 with 'Be-Bop-A-Lula' and he soon had a deal with Capitol. Considered by many to be one of the greatest Rock'n'Roll LPs of all time, this album, released in 1957, was actually Vincent's second LP for the label, but his first featuring almost all original material. All the tracks on this album, except 'Unchained Melody' and 'Blues Stay Away from Me' are originals.
Songs like 'Red Bluejeans And A Pony Tail' and 'Double Talkin' Baby' (covered by the Stray Cats many years later), echoed the teen R&R rebellion sweeping the USA in the mid-fifties.

A 'Must Have' for any serious Rock'n'Roll collection

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 ".
