For a quick and complete Gene transfusion you can get the Gene Vincent Box Set on iTunes. £9.99, 151 tracks from '56 to '64. :)

Thanks Mr H and Simon for those suggestions. Much appreciated. The CD I got was a re-issue of 'Blue Jean Bop' with a few extra tracks but I think I'm going to have to investigate further.

There's great '56 era stuff that was never on the LPs too - i've got a few 78s with some great B-sides - 'Five Days, Five Days' 'Important Words' 'Woman Love' 'Gonna Back Up Baby'.



All great stuff - I think his first 3 LPs ('BlueJean Bop' 'Gene Vincent & The Bluecaps' 'Gene Vincent Rocks & The BlueCaps Roll') are the best. I absolutely love his version of 'You'll Never Walk Alone'. Amazing vibe.

I love this track.

Another favourite is his version of 'Unchained Melody'. Just great... :)

I love his slower songs -

'Waltz of the Wind'
'Ain't She Sweet'
'Peg Oh My heart'
'Time will bring you everything' (That was the first song I taught myself on guitar when I was about 12 because it was my Dad's favourite)
'Peace of Mind'
'You belong to me'


beautiful stuff.

Oh fuck, you got that in the end! Magic.

Was watching him do Over The Rainbow on YouTube the other day and just stunning. There are loads of great performance from Gene right until he died and he truly deserves people to listen to how he was singing all the way through, a truly greater singer full stop. I'm getting misty eyes just typing this

I think this is from the film "Live it up" this film has a stack of Meek artists, I think Joe recorded this one too.

Bet that big lump of steel was made in Sheffield....bet that would shake yer nuts even more than that BSA...
Hey Lofty is he polishing it as good as you could...bit a Brasso and Duraglit !
Nearly forgot :roll: Saw RH on Calendar, are you going to do a song about Scarborough :shock: you could shoot the vid on the Olivers Mount circuit riding that BSA with a bird on the back in an headscarf, very retro.
Proper boss that'd be :wink:
Just noticed I'm a groupie now...do I get a badge or summat :P
Anyone remotely interested in the sixties era should read Chas Hodges book, it's a real gem..

Think Gene went up to 304 to record that song didn't he. I can't remember which way round this goes but weren't there two recordings of the song, one done at Joe's & one at EMI? One went out as a 45, the other was the one shown on the film. 8)

Gene did record at 304, probably limped up them stairs, he couldn't believe what he saw...bet he did his leg in on a Triumph speed twin.
Ever seen the film "Live it up" Heinz's finest hour...MY ARSE what a spaz..Why in all the clips does he look like he's shitin' himself...
Cost Joe a fortune, at least he inadvertently left him the gun..
What ever happened to that guy who wrote "Bang Bang The Mighty Fall"
If your Houdini in your spare time ...
Gorra go there's some blokes at' door wi white coats on...
