Gene Vincent will always be remembered as the Screaming End - the tortured rock 'n' roll singer who rocked harder than anyone in the mid-1950s.  What people tend to forget is that Gene Vincent had another side, a sweet high voice that lent itself well to ballad material.  Gene Vincent grew up with country music and classic pop, and that background comes through on these rarely-heard recordings. 

From his first session in 1956 until one of his last in 1971, this collection showcases some of the best ballads Gene Vincent ever recorded, from Important Words to Over The Rainbow and The Night Is So Lonely and many more.  When the right mood hits you, this collection will send chills down your spine, so enjoy this other side of Gene Vincent!

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 ".
