6 Albums + A's & B's singles on 4 CD's from the great Gene Vincent. What more could you ask for. The albums from Capitol from 1956-1960 are Bluejean Bop, Gene Vincent & The Blue Caps, Gene Vincent Record Date, Gene Vincent Rocks & The Blue Caps Roll, Crazy Times, Sounds Like Gene Vincent. There also bonus tracks from live TV shows including Alan Freed. Add to this 34 single's tracks and a nice booklet and you have a great package. Gene at his very best.

This one is finely crafted set with Alan Clayson's well- striving liner notes and sound quality is excellent but what I've found inexcusable is that both Teenage Partner and Five Feet Of Lovin' - 56 versions does not include here. Missing are also some of Los Angeles, Hollywood -61 and London, Abbey Road sessions. Only released singles from those sessions are included here. On disc two Well I Knocked Bim Bam from -56 is laid there as a last track after few The Town Hall Party - live tracks. Why not include those two missing ones there instead of Town Hall - tracks... ?
Too bad all of this because it's not question of too many tracks which could and should have been there, specially Teenage Partner and Five Feet Of Lovin' from 1956- sessions.
If you could find EMI "green" 6-cd box Complete Capitol and Columbia Recordings from 1990 I suggest buy that. Grandious Bear Family lp- sized box might be too expensive for casual fan but then again sets like this just does not offer all what it's title stands for, that's my opinion and Gene Vincent earns our respects to be heard completely.

I have long wanted a comprehensive collection of Gene Vincent's classic years on CD... and here it is! There is a lot here, and it is very good value for money. Most of the music is wonderful - all the classics are here, plus some rare hidden gems. A few items that don't quite work out, but they can easily be edited from the playlist! I love this set.

I am very glad that ordered these disks in Amazon. Record very pure. Fine and beautiful booklet. In boxing the first six number albums are presented. In the fourth disk to contain all parties And and Century. I have other boxes of this remarkable singer. I consider this position of the most successful.

it's ok but a little one dimensional, a lot of mediocre stuff mixed in with the classics
