Famously one of legendary Rock'n'Roll manager/impresario Larry Parnes' "Stable Of Stars", Vince Eager'S career longevity rivals that of fellow ex-Parnes' colleagues Marty Wilde and Joe Brown. With his commanding, 6'4" height and charismatic stage presence, Eager was a dynamic and hugely popular live performer on the one-nighters' package tour circuit in the late 50s/early 60s, and a high profile regular on TV shows like 6. 5 Special, Oh Boy!, Boy Meets Girls, Cool For Cats and Drumbeat!He also 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', Gene Pitney's 'Love My Life Away', etc. This compilation anthologises all of Vince's releases for Decca, Parlophone and Top Rank, between 1958-61, an excellent, much underrated and highly collectable body of work
