Σαν σήμερα, στις 11 Φεβρουαρίου του 1935, στο Norfolk της Virginia γεννήθηκε ένας από τους πρωτοπόρους του rock’n’roll, ο Vincent Eugene Craddock, πιο γνωστός ως Gene Vincent. Ιστορικά έμειναν κάποια από τα χιτ της πρώτης του περιόδου με τους Blue Caps [‘Be-Bop-A-Lula’, ‘Race With The Devil’, Crazy Legs’ etc.] Το τραγούδι που ακούμε είναι από άλμπουμ που κυκλοφόρησε στην Αγγλία το 1967, τέσσερα χρόνια πριν τον πρόωρο θάνατο του.

On this day, February 11, 1935, one of rock’n’roll’ pioneers, Vincent Eugene Craddock, better known as Gene Vincent, was born in Norfolk, Virginia. He recorded a number of essential hits in his first period with the Blue Caps [‘Be-Bop-A-Lula’, ‘Race With The Devil’, Crazy Legs’ etc.]. The one we’re listening to is from an album released in England in 1967, four years before his untimely death.

More about these reblogs

Lately I have been rebloging music videos from Oannes new blog. For my friends who didn’t know, or wonder why…. Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and mine] musical selections. Although here I reblog mainly his musical selections, he writes exceptional articles on various topics [some may need translation], so do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!

  1. When the gods wanna rock Mt. O., they play rockabilly music– at least that’s what I’ve heard. And I’m always bird-doggin’ the jukebox to see if there’s a new MK-O song. 👍🍨😋
