Spent Brothers Productions Gene Vincent Website


(July 1962)

GENE VINCENT recorded a new version of his fantastic hit “Be-Bop-A-Lula” in London on Tuesday. It was one of four sides which he recorded under Norrie Paramor’s direction at EMI on his third British session.

Vincent, who plans to live here, made slight changes to the song. The Charles Blackwell Orchestra provided a twist backing.

The first two sides will be issued next month. It is not certain whether “Be-Bop-A-Lula” will be his next single. It may be shelved for subsequent release.
