4.0 out of 5 stars All of Gene's 1956-1960 catalog right here May 11, 2012
Format:Audio CD
If you were to spend $300 on a new copy of the EMI Gene Vincent box set, you'd get 151 tracks which Allmusic calls "Six CDs containing the complete Capitol and EMI-Columbia recordings by Vincent, from 1956 through 1964." On the other hand you could shell out a pittance plus shipping and have in your hands this four CD set containing 114 tracks, of which 105 most likely overlap with that EMI box set.

In addition to thirty songs from singles, this four disk collection includes the following albums:
Blue Jean Bop (1956)
Gene Vincent and His Blue Caps (1957)
Gene Vincent Rocks and the Blue Caps Roll (1958)
A Gene Vincent Record Date (1958)
Sounds Like Gene Vincent (1959)
Crazy Times (1960)

The box set also includes what may be rare collectible numbers from these releases:
"Well I Knocked Bim Bam" - from Teenage Rock (1958)
"Dance in the Street" and "Lovely Loretta" - EP tracks (1958)

Closing out the set are nine live tracks from 1958 and 1959 appearances on the Town Hall Party TV show. Although I haven't seen Gene's DVD of kinescopes, the fact that the nine songs appear there in the same sequences suggests that it was the source of those tracks.

Sound throughout this box set is uniformly good, as is the case with other box sets in this series, not taken from vinyl. The only asterisk might be the final three tracks on the final disk. These are the three songs taken from Gene's 1959 appearance on the Town Hall Party show. It's marginal enough that I'd relegate those three tracks to historical interest.

4.0 out of 5 stars A little Rockabilly April 11, 2012
By R Wyatt
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Gene Vincent an the Blue Caps, some fun stuff. For the price, you get 6 lps and a bunch of singles. Gotta say, I've heard this, the Johnny Cash set, and the Jackie Wilson set, the sound quality on all of these have been excellent. For the price you can't beat it. All you get are the 4 cds, no booklet included, but plenty of tracks, a total of 114 songs. I wasn't going to buy this because I already had the 2nd lp from Gene on the Capitol 2002 release which was remastered. The sound on this newer set blew the Capitol Remaster away, so I decided to pick this up. If you know Gene, there is some filler on here, same with the Jackie Wilson set, but there is more than enough good stuff to justify picking up both of these sets. The Johnny Cash set has little filler on it, but I have most of it, if you don't though, these are all worth the price you're getting them for.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Fun February 7, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Gene Vincent and His Blue Caps had only five charted hits from 1956 through 1958, but his music was unforgettable and widely collected today. This 4 CD set gives you six LP's and a bunch of singles all from the old Capitol catalog. Anything you could want by Gene Vincent is included here: "Blue Jean Bop", "Gene Vincent And The Blue Caps", "Gene Vincent Rocks And The Blue Caps Roll", "A Gene Vincent Record Date", "Sounds Like Gene Vincent" and "Crazy Times". There are also about 30 additional tracks from various singles, EP cuts, and even a track from the very rare various artists LP "Teenage Rock". The Remastering is very good and the price was very reasonable. A must-have set for any rockabilly collector and a bargain too? Thanks, Real Gone!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet Gene April 27, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A great inexpensive way to obtain a library of Gene's 50's era work. Everything I wanted in one package. Titles only in the liners, but I can read more online anyhow.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent February 23, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Did not know much of Gene's music, but liked it enough to give this a try, found it to be fantastic, he has such a nice voice to listen to, whether he is rockin' or singing a ballad. If I had lived in that era it would have been him or Buddy at the top of my listening choices.
