AllMusic Review by

In 1998 Collectables reissued Gene Vincent's original Capitol LPs from 1957-1960 as a series of three two-fers, giving buyers an opportunity to hear most of Vincent's Capitol recordings without going to the trouble and expense of tracking down an import box set. The two 1958 LPs reissued on this CD contain no hits but lots of solid rockers and ballads in Vincent's characteristic style. The hits "Be-Bop-a-Lula" and "Race With the Devil" are included as bonus tracks for the convenience of anyone who doesn't already own a greatest-hits collection. If you like Gene Vincent, you'll enjoy practically everything here.
