Born To Be A Rollin’ Stone The Challenge Sessions 1966-68 - Gene Vincent

Born To Be A Rollin’ Stone The Challenge Sessions 1966-68
Released 27/10/08. By 1966/67, Gene Vincent had already been Europe's top Rock ‘n’ Roll legend for some years. In the US however, he was seen as very much yesterday's man. Escaping the clutches of his notorious manager Don Arden, Gene made tracks to Hollywood into the open arms of 4 Star Records and Music, a happening hive of music. This CD documents their efforts to reinvent Gene as an LA folk/country rocker, with a slew of beautiful songs almost on a par with The Gosdin Brothers’ seminal The Sounds Of Goodbye or The International Submarine Band's debut. In great voice and expertly backed by LA session giants such as Glen Campbell and The Champs, and generating hits in ‘Bird Doggin’’ and ‘Born To Be A Rollin' Stone’, this collection shows an amazing direction Gene's career could have taken. Indeed, containing LA proto country rock of the kind that would later lead to classics by The Byrds, Gene Clark and others, this is an amazing collection.
