"Gene's voice in the '60s had gained in strength and maturity, so much so that the recordings he made for Challenge in 1966/1967 are to be counted amongst his best ever. The Challenge deal came along at the right time since Gene had been dropped by UK's Columbia label (following the release of four uneven singles and a superb album).

As you all know, Challenge (Gene Autry's label) was put on the map in 1958 thanks to the million-selling hit by The Champs, 'Tequila'. Other fifties acts of note included Huelyn Duvall, Dave Burgess, Jerry Wallace, Dean Beard, Kip Tyler and Wynn Stewart - in addition to Autry himself and his old buddy, Foy Willing. In the sixties, the label signed Jan & Dean and there were releases by Baker Knight, Jimmy Seals, Wayne Newton, Don Deal, Keith Colley and groups like The Knickerbockers, an excellent outfit whose 'Lies' was very successful in late '65. The signing of Gene Vincent seems a bit odd in retrospect but it did produce a bunch of marvelous recordings. It's crazy to think that half of them weren't issued in the USA until ... 1994, when Sundazed collected 'em all (plus a handful of alternate takes in stereo) on a not-to-be-missed CD" (More to be read at : http://www.bigvjamboree.com/GeneVincentChallengeSessions.htm)
