DANCE TO THE BOP * GENE VINCENT * CAPITOL 985 * UK
Issued in 1958 this was Gene Vincent's first UK EP, the tracks of which were taken from the - what would have been then - an aggressive sounding film: Hot Rod Gang. The film is however not half as threatening as the title, although it features all you'd expect from a Rock and Roll film of it's time: Hot rods, cops, juke joints, fist fights and sexy young girls; it is also said that Eddie Cochran puts in an appetence.
