RED'S RECORD RACK
Gene Vincent Due Here Tuesday
by Red Robinson
Vancouver Sun Nov. 8, 1957
   The record business today is becoming a family affair.
   More and more "chips off old blocks" are showing up on juke boxes.
   Gary and Lindsay Crosby are both active for Decca.  Ozzie Nelson's son Ricky is high on the hit parade with his version of "Be Bop Baby."
   In the Western music field there is Jimmy Rodgers, the son of Hank Snow, and Ernest Tubb's son Justin.  Red Foley's daughter Betty and his son-in-law Pat Boone and Boone's brother Nick Tod are all record stars.
   And then there's the Everly Brothers.
   A few "old reliables" are around, too -- the Clooney Sisters, the Andrews Sisters and the Mills Brothers.
   Other new entrants in the "family sweepstakes' include Tony Pastor's son Gary and Alan Jones' son, Jack.  Late actor Osgood Perkins' son Tony is a star in both records and movies.
   Young rock 'n' roller Frankie Lymon has an even younger brother Lewis who has just signed to do singles for End records.
   Two reversals of the trend are Betty Johnson who has stepped out of the Johnson family to make it on her own and Jaye P. Morgan who left the Morgans to become a major RCA Victor disc star.

   Gene Vincent, the boy from Nashville, will swing with his Blue Caps at the Georgia Auditorium at 8 p.m. next Tuesday.
   His show has been drawing big audiences wherever he has been.  Recently in Houston, he drew an average of 3,000 a night for six nights.
   Gene, who was featured in Jayne Mansfield's movie "The Girl Can't Help It," had been singing and swinging with the Blue Caps since "Be-Bop-a-Lula" became his first record to sell a million.
   Also on Tuesday's show is Bonnie Guitar, the Pacific Northwest's gift to the music world.  Her recording of "Dark Moon" set her up as one of America's top vocalists.

*  *  *  *  *  *
   Music from the films and from the Broadway shows is back in prominence with the release this week of some new LPs and singles.
   Capitol has released the soundtrack music from "Pal Joey" with Kim Novak and Frank Sinatra.
   RCA Victor has released the soundtrack music from Elvis Presley's movie "Jailhouse Rock" on an extended play.
   Singles include Eydie Gorme's "Until They Sail" from the show of the same name, and "Wait And See" with Fats Domino, from the forthcoming picture "Jamboree."
   DOT has released the soundtrack music from "April Love."

Gene, look, and listen to your hit parade today.  It's a mixture of many thigs.  You have ballads like "Chances Are" and you have real rock songs like "Jailhouse Rock" and you have rhythm and blues as is shown in "Little Bitty Pretty One."
   But the most outstanding contribution of late is coming from the country and western field.
   Stars like Marty Robbins, Ferlin Husky, Jerry Lee Lewis, Jimmy Dean, Anita Carter and the Everly Brothers are sprinkled all through your hit parade.
