Capitol Records
, who were looking for a young singer to rival Elvis Presley,
invited Gene Vincent to record the song “Be-Bop-A-Lula” at Owen Bradley‘s
studio in Nashville, Tennessee. It was released in June 1956 and immediately
sold well. The song was successful on three singles charts: it peaked at #7
on the Billboard pop music chart, #8 on the R&B chart, and also made the
top ten on the C&W Best Seller chart peaking at #5. In April 1957, Capitol
announced that over 2 million copies of the record had been sold to date.
