It took until 1998 for Gene Vincent to gain induction to the rock 'n' roll Hall of Fame. It took that long for the rock 'n' roll establishment to admit that Vincent was rock 'n' roll incarnate: the sound, the fury, the screaming end. Vincent was wracked with pain for most of his life as a the result of a 1955 motorcycle accident. On stage, he looked both tragic and dangerous. He placed his damaged left leg behind him at an oddly skewed angle, and relied upon almost grotesquely exaggerated facial contortions to suggest emotion. The tone and mood of his music was darkly ominous, almost threatening. It was the beginning of rock 'n' roll as theater and first intimation of punk. The 21-track retrospective, Rocks On: Greatest Hits and Favorites, collects such Vincent landmarks as "Be-Bop-A-Lula," "Race With The Devil," "Bluejean Bop," "Lotta Lovin'," "Woman Love," "Crazy Legs," "B-I-Bickey-Bi, Bo-Bo-Go" and "Dance to the Bop."
