Synopsis

Album Description
This 2008 compilation CD documents the Challenge labels' efforts to reinvent the '50s Rock 'N' Roll icon as an LA Folk/Country rocker in the mid-to-late '60s, with a slew of beautiful songs almost on a par with The Gosdin Brothers' seminal The Sounds Of Goodbye or The International Submarine Band's debut. In great voice and expertly backed by LA session giants such as Glen Campbell and The Champs, and generating hits in 'Bird Doggin'' and 'Born To Be A Rollin' Stone', this collection shows an amazing direction Gene's career could have taken. Indeed, containing LA proto Country Rock of the kind that would later lead to classics by The Byrds, Gene Clark and others, this is an amazing collection. 12 tracks. Rev-Ola.
