Along with Marty Wilde and Joe Brown, VINCE EAGER was one of legendary Rock’n’Roll manager/impresario Larry Parnes’ “Stable Of Stars”, signed after being seen singing the legendary 2 I’s Coffee Bar in London. Eager was a dynamic and hugely popular live performer on the tour circuit in the late 50s/early 60s, and a regular on TV shows like 6.5 Special, Oh Boy!, Boy Meets Girls, Cool For Cats and Drumbeat! He earned a reputation for cutting powerful UK covers of US hits like Gene Vincent’s Five Days, Five Days, Floyd Robinson’s Makin’ Love, Jerry Wallace’s Primrose Lane, Frankie Avalon’s Why, Marty Robbins’ El Paso, Conway Twitty’s Lonely Blue Boy and Gene Pitney’s Love My Life Away, all of which are included here, along with all of Vince’s releases for Decca, Parlophone and Top Rank, between 1958-61. Still recording and performing, Vince recently collaborated with Marty Wilde and Albert Lee. This disc features his best known hits from the glory days of rock’n’roll.
