Gene Vincent's debut album "Bluejean Bop" was also releleased on three EPs, this being the last of them.

A1 was originally recorded by Hadda Brooks in 1952. A2 is a Roy Acuff original from 1948. B1 is the only Vincent original on this disc, and B2 goes way back to 1913, when it was first recorded by Charles W. Harrison for Victor Talking Machine Company, which later became RCA Victor.

Vincent has been one of my favorite R&R pioneers since my early teens.
Great vocals, top-notch musicians, top-shelf stuff!

List price:  Very Good+ is $75, Near Mint is $150. Picture sleeves have the same pricing. (I wish I had the sleeve for this)
