British rock star Vince Taylor wrote the larger-than-life anthem Brand New Cadillac and later the classic Jet Black Machine. With his 1950s British band, which was extremely talented by international standards, he set the benchmark in terms of stage show and presence long before the Beatles. He oriented himself on US models like Gene Vincent and Elvis Presley, but went one step further and anticipated the later development of punk with his ecstatic appearances. During the 1950s he had lived in the USA for a while and experienced the emergence of rock'n' roll up close.
Vocally his role models were superior to him, and apart from two or three outstanding songs of his own, his repertoire consisted of covers of the US originals. But apparently Vince Taylor has always been able to gather some of the best musicians of the British Isles around him and above all to entertain and inspire live.
This release is a reproduction of a 10" LP album first released by Barclay in France in 1961, strictly limited to 500 pieces in colored vinyl!
