An intriguing follow-up to the 8-CD set Gene Vincent - The Road Is Rocky (Complete Studio Masters 1956-1971), this 6-CD set, comprised of every known outtake, false start and dialogue, is a completist’s dream. Featuring superb sound quality, the listener can actually hear how the various bands worked it out with Vincent in the studio. According to re-issue producer Derek Henderson, the singer's 1956-1957 sessions tapes have yet to be located, but a wealth of great material exists from his later era at Capitol Records. Previously unreleased takes culled from October 13-20, 1958 supervised by Ken Nelson include the last sessions with the Blue Caps comprising such fine tracks as “Lonesome Boy,” “Rip It Up,” “Gone Gone Gone,” “High Blood Pressure” and the classic ballad “Important Words.” The Hollywood sessions produced by Jimmie Haskell - best remembered for his work with Ricky Nelson - include “Crazy Beat,” “I’m Gonna Catch Me A Rat,” “Good Lovin’” and the Doc Pomus - Mort Shuman song “It’s Been Nice (Goodnight).” The same year Vincent recorded with producer Norrie Paramor at Abbey Road Studio for the extra terrestrial rocker “Spaceship To Mars,” along with “There I Go Again (Whoops),” “Held For Questioning,” “King Of Fools” and “Be-Bop-A-Lula ‘62.” The equally legendary Joe Meek produced “Temptation Baby” for the soundtrack of Live It Up, the alternate is featured here. Another treat, great outtakes of the Bill Shepherd produced “The Beginning Of The End” and the Barry Mann - Cynthia Weil song “Where Have You Been All My Life.” 1966 and 1967 found Vincent in the studio with such session greats as Glen Campbell, Al Casey, David Gates, and Jerry Cole. Creating a more contemporary sound with Joe Johnson and Dave Burgess for the Challenge label in Hollywood, he waxed “Bird Doggin‘,” “Love Is A Bird,” “I’m A Lonesome Fugitive,” “Hurtin For You Baby” and the Jerry Lee Merritt-penned “Born To Be A Rolling Stone." Few of these performances are substantially different from one another - Vincent was trying to perfect a specific version - yet it is fascinating to hear the subtle variations he employs while making each song conform to his personal vision. Packaged in a digibox set that includes a 76-page booklet with liner notes by Steve Aynsley, this remarkable collection features dozens of alternates that have never been released before. This painstakingly remastered set bring us closer to the people that created the music while showcasing the creative genius of the late Gene Vincent.
