1960s singer still rocks
By Dawn Bond
The latest offering by 1960s singer, Vince Eager, of Radcliffe, is the CD, 788 Years Of Rock ‘N’ Roll, released through the Western Star Recording Company.
The name came from adding up all the ages of everyone featured on the bubble gum pop album.
There are delightful performances from special guests Marty Wilde, Chas Hodges, Albert Lee, Clem Catinni, Colin Green and Tex Makins.
Backed by his band, The Memphis Tones, Vince belts out You’re Never Too Old To Rock ‘N’ Roll, Fabulous, Baby Blue, Soda Pop Pop, Lonely Weekends, Got A Lot O’ Livin’ To Do, No Other Baby, Buzz Buzz Buzz and Mean Woman Blues.
There are two wonderful versions of Bird Dog — one electrifying and the other as an acoustic, recorded with his friends.
I was lucky enough to hear some of these tracks performed live at Vince’s show in Radcliffe at Christmas.
This is the ideal CD to put in your car and listen to while driving around in the summer heat. It will make you feel good — DAB.
