Great box but something is missing...
on 17 March 2014
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.
