Gene Vincent: The Road Is Rocky,56-71 (8CD)

8-CD Box (LP-Format) with 132-page hardcover book, 223 tracks, time 549:05 min.

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 made Gene 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 of Gene Vincent recordings 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 of Gene Vincent amazing life and the background to each of his recordings by Ian Wallis.

Rock ‘n’ Roll comes no better than this - 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 ".
